From the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:

New polls showing Republicans with healthy leads in three of the four state Senate recall fights are sobering for Democrats for a few reasons.

One, they’re a reminder that these races are being fought on Republican-leaning turf, as were last year’s Senate recalls.

Two, the Democratic pollster who did the surveys argues that a small portion of voters unhappy with GOP Gov. Scott Walker don’t approve of the recalls, creating an extra hurdle for Democrats to overcome in flipping these Senate seats.

Three, Walker leads in his own recall fight in these particular districts, according to the polls.
