Walsh Found Trailing in Latest We Ask America Poll

We Ask America was the only published pollster when Joe Walsh upset Melissa Bean in 2010. Its findings showed Walsh has a chance.

Now it comes up with recent findings that Walsh is trailing Tammy Duckworth.

Here is the text:

Illinois 8 – Democrat Tammy Duckworth vs. Republican incumbent Joe Walsh

As we’ve profiled before, this race pits Duckworth, a disabled Iraqi war veteran, against Tea Party favorite Joe Walsh.

While Duckworth hasn’t proven to be a great candidate, she has a distinct advantage in this re-drawn district by running against a guy who seems to enjoy being a lightning rod for controversy.

Walsh surprised many by keeping this race competitive as long as he did, but Duckworth’s campaign has taken advantage of Walsh’s without-exception pro-life views while whacking him for not paying child support.

That one-two punch seems to have pushed Walsh over the edge where he now may be in a free fall:

Poll type: Automated Date: October 28, 2012 – Participants: 1,010 Likely Voters – Margin of Error: ± 3.1%

Tammy Duckworth Joe Walsh
ALL VOTERS 54.6% 45.4%
Republicans 19% 81%
Democrats 90% 10%
Independents 52% 48%

Whether it gets worse for Mr. Walsh before Election Day is anyone’s guess, but Tammy Duckworth now appears to be in line for a win on November 6.

  1. 45.4? That’s way up from the 38% I thought he would take!

    Congrats Joe, you are going to finish second way better than I expected!

  2. Is this the same duckworth that states that the middle class is doing great?

    Does she get her information from obama?
