More Bad News For Tom Barrett

CREATED May 24, 2012

Things are going from bad to worse for Tom Barrett.

A poll yesterday showed him trailing Governor Walker by 5 points - just like most other polls released over the last two weeks.  A new poll today has the margin at 8 points.  Ouch.

Meanwhile, President Obama apparently wants nothing to do with the Barrett campaign.  The reluctance of the President  to come to Wisconsin - coupled with the reluctance of the Democratic National Committee to make a substantial infusion of cash into the race - tells you everything you need to know. 

Specifically, politicos outside of Wisconsin have realized what a lot of us understood a long time ago - Tom Barrett is likely to lose (and perhaps lose big).

Assuming, of course, that GOP voters don't become complacent and decide not to turn out!
