Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) on Wednesday joined the chorus of Republicans pushing back against the slew of polls showing President Barack Obama expanding his lead in various swing states.

Asserting that the race is still “incredibly tight” in states such as Ohio, Walker told Fox’s Neil Cavuto that the recent surveys may be undersampling Romney voters because Republicans are often reticent when approached by pollsters, pointing to exit polls that incorrectly suggested he would face a tight recall fight in June.  Walker ended up winning the recall election over Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett by a comfortable margin.

 “Particularly in the exit polls, and sometimes people who tend to be a little bit more right-of-center, conservative voters are reluctant to talk to the media, period,” Walker said.  “And so they under-represent the sample.”
