MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Jobs and the economy are a hot topic in the recall race, with Gov. Scott Walker touting new data showing that Wisconsin added jobs in 2011 despite previous reports that jobs were lost.
That news comes as a new Marquette University Law School poll shows voters believe Walker would do a better job than Democrat Tom Barrett in creating jobs, 48 percent to 41 percent.
The random telephone poll of 704 registered voters has a margin of error of 3.8 percentage points and was conducted between May 9 and Saturday.
The poll also shows Walker ahead of Barrett 50 percent to 44 percent of 600 likely voters, with a margin of error of 4.1 percentage points on that question.
Also in the poll, Lt. Governor Rebecca Kleefisch holds a 47 percent to 41 percent lead over Professional Fire Fighters of Wisconsin president Mahlon Mitchell.13424496
