Public Policy Poll Reports Sheriff Clarke is "Very Unpopular"
A new Public Policy Poll survey of Milwaukee County is reporting that Sheriff David Clarke is very unpopular.
According to the report, Clarke has almost no chance at being reelected next year.
According to the report, only 31% of voters in the county approve of the job Clarke is doing, to 62% who disapprove.
The report went on to say voters consider him to be somewhat of a national embarrassment.
65% say that he's had a negative impact on Milwaukee County's image nationally, to only 29% who think he's had a positive impact.
“Milwaukee voters think David Clarke is embarrassing their county on the national level,” said Dean Debnam, President of Public Policy Polling. “Democratic voters are open to replacing him with just about anyone at this point.”
Public Policy Polling surveyed 1,260 Milwaukee County voters, including 722 Democratic primary voters, from January 27th to 29th. The margin of error is +/-2.8% for the overall sample, and +/-3.7% for the Democratic primary voter sample. Participants were selected through a list based sample, and responded via landline telephone calls.
