Put your May 8 primary predictions here!

So who will win the Democratic gubernatorial primary tomorrow?

I know there’s been a lot of rather contentious back-and-forth here in the Cheddarsphere among supporters of former Dane County Executive Kathleen Falk and Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett as to who’s the more electable (and more suitable) candidate to go up against Republican Gov. Scott Walker, and tomorrow we’ll find out which Democrat will be Gov. Walker’s opponent.

So who do you think will be the Democratic gubernatorial nominee?

      I agree that all four are qualified (to varying degrees), but I’m with you.

      Though I will say that any of the four Democrats would be better than Scott Walker.

      True, but I do think Barrett has learned some lessons from the 2010 election cycle, whether his detractors believe it or not.

    It will be Tom Barret Falk just does not have the name nor personality to get elected. The early endorsements by the unions really hurt her chance.

    Barrett wins, but I’m not sure he’s any stronger now than he was 2 years ago.

    Barrett 42%
    Falk 35%
    Vinehout 12%
    La Follette 10%
    Fake Dem and write-ins <1%

    June election is the interesting one anyway. Very unpredictable. Just wish there were a stronger Dem candidate.

    My prediction:

    Scott Walker 97%
    Arthur Kohl-Riggs 2%

    Gladys R. Huber 7% (Fake Democrat)
    Kathleen Vinehout 14%
    Doug La Follette 8%
    Kathleen Falk 29%
    Tom Barrett 41%

        Jan –

        I do not understand your reference. The only thing I can think of is you taking issues with my prediction of Gladys Huber at 7% and I think that is plausible since she is listed first on the ballot and there have been many studies that suggest first name on the ballot can get upwards of 4% points more just by being the first name on the ballot.
