Gov. Scott Walker fears voter fatigue in his re-election bid

MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - In 67 days, Governor Scott Walker will face Wisconsin voters for the third time in four years.

Friday, the Republican Walker said one of his biggest concerns is that his voters are getting complacent and fatigued.

This week's Marquette Law School poll showed that more Democrats than Republicans would definitely vote in November -- while Walker and Burke are in a virtual dead heat.

The poll also showed that more Democrats are circling the wagons, as Burke's support among likely voters in her party has grown from 84 percent in January to 95 percent now. That's higher than what Tom Barrett got from Democrats when he ran in the Walker recall contest in 2012.

Walker continues to get 96 percent support from likely Republican voters. Still, the governor said on WTMJ Radio in Milwaukee that he senses voter fatigue after his initial victory in 2010 and the hard-fought Republican recalls of both 2011 and '12.

Walker also promised to spend the next several weeks unveiling an aggressive agenda for voters to consider for a second term.
