Madison, WI (LifeNews.com) — Milwaukee County Executive Scott Walker appears headed to an election victory in the Wisconsin gubernatorial race over Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett as polls show him consistently leading. Meanwhile, a pro-life group in the state has released a new video exposing Barrett’s pro-abortion position.
Walker leads the last three polls taken in the race by an average of nine percentage points.
A survey released last week by Rasmussen Reports of likely Wisconsin voters finds Walker earning 51% of the vote, while Barrett receives 42% support. One percent (1%) favors another candidate, and six percent (6%) are undecided.
Two weeks ago, Walker, the county executive of Milwaukee County, held a 50% to 44% advantage over his Democratic opponent and Walker has consistently been leading the race.
Now, the Wisconsin Right to Life Political Action Committee has released a new video exposing Barrett’s pro-abortion position.
The new "explosive video" "exposes Tom Barrett’s shameful record against life" WRTL told LifeNews.com today.
"The right-to-life citizens of Wisconsin have had enough of Tom Barrett and are sending him a powerful message …no more of your radical pro-abortion agenda in our state," the group said.
The Rasmussen poll found 88% of Walkers voters say they’ve already made up their minds how they will vote next month, while 81% of Barretts supporters say the same — indicating the video could have an impact on the race.
Current Democratic Governor Jim Doyle chose not to seek reelection, and only 39% of voters in Wisconsin approve of the job he is doing. Fifty-seven percent (57%) disapprove of his job performance.
