Independents To Decide Recall
Democrats and republicans are energized for the recall election. Political experts say both sides will be throwing everything they can into the campaign over the next few weeks.
“If nothing else people are going to be reminded nightly as they watch television that there is an election going on and the difference between walker and Barrett is pretty great so I think that the interest in the election and the momentum that we've seen in the recall election and primary will continue,” said UWGB professor Michael Kraft.
Walker and Barrett will get support from their party's base; it's the estimated 20% percent of undecided voters the candidates will be gunning for. “It's the people who are either a moderate identify with one of the party or are independent will completely go back and forth that what's makes us a purple state and that's why everyone in the country is watching what's going on here,” said St. Norbert political science professor Wendy Scattergood.
More than a million voters came out the polls Tuesday for the primary. Experts predict that high number could climb even higher in June for the recall election.
