Could Wisconsin Voters Recall Walker?

Wisconsin voters have buyer's remorse over their new union-busting governor, Scott Walker. 

The Republican, who won with 52% of the vote last November, would lose by 7 points in a hypothetical rematch with his Democratic opponent, according to a new PPP poll

Could Cheeseheads move to recall Walker? Yes and no. Wisconsin law permits recall elections, but not until one year into a politician's elected term. Petition gathering can begin 60 days prior to that anniversary. So Walker, who took the oath of office on January 3, is safe from an organized recall campaign — at least until November.
