Right now Wisconsin Governor Walker wouldn’t get re-elected….

In a  poll that should be a warning to GOPer Governor’s out there and other’s….

Wisconsin Governor would lose to his Democratic opponent Tom Barret if there was a do over today….

He has become that unpopular in his home state and across the country….

Everyday the protests continue in his state…

He loses a little more….

As I have pointed out here…….


The 2012 Primaries are less than year away…

House re-elections are less than 2 years away….

All this union busting is just stirring up the Democratic base and pissing Republican union members off also….

Maybe they can get a recall election for next winter and vote him out….


Wisconsin Do Over?

A new Public Policy Polling survey finds that if Wisconsin voters could do it over today they’d support Tom Barrett (D) over Gov. Scott Walker (R) by a seven point margin, 52% to 45%.

Key finding: “The difference between how folks would vote now and how they voted in November can almost all be attributed to shifts within union households. Voters who are not part of union households have barely shifted at all- they report having voted for Walker by 7 points last fall and they still say they would vote for Walker by a 4 point margin. But in households where there is a union member voters now say they’d go for Barrett by a 31 point margin, up quite a bit from the 14 point advantage they report having given him in November.”

Poll: Wisconsin Voters Wouldn’t Elect Gov. Walker In Do-Over


Wisconsin voters already have buyers remorse about electing Gov. Scott Walker (R).

In a PPP poll released Monday, a majority of registered Wisconsin voters say that in a hypothetical re-do of last year’s gubernatorial election, they would vote for Democrat Tom Barrett, whom Walker defeated in November. That finding comes as Walker continues to stand firm on his budget proposals that would strip most state public employees of long-held collective bargaining rights.

Fifty-two percent of respondents said they would vote for Barrett if the election were held today, while 45% said they would vote for Walker. That’s almost exactly the opposite of what happened in the election, when Walker won the governorship with 52% of the vote to Barrett’s 47%.

  1. I will always struggle to get the same reaction others do because the state I grew up in ( VA) didnt allow teachers to strike

    so what Walker is proposing WAS the norm for me

    I will say this.. KNOWING you dont have to worry about teachers striking is lot stressful

    and I think the majority of people DO NOT belong to unions in the first place

  2. Timothy Peter Leal: Wisconsin teacher’s already lack the right to strike, as long as they are offered at least a ~3% yearly pay increase in their contract. The only issues they are presently allowed to negotiate over in their contracts are exactly the item’s being taken from them in Gov. Walker’s bill. Many on the right defend this bill BECAUSE it is directed to workplace conditions (class size) and benefits, incorreclty assuming teachers can still negotiate pay.

    So, law 1 says no right to collectively negotiate pay if they are offered at least ~3% yearly pay increase in their contract. Law 2, if passed, says, no right to collectively bargain any non-pay issue. Exactly what would they have left to negotiate.

    BTW, I moved here from VIRGINIA in 2004 – the schools here are orders of magnitude better than Virginia’s. Even if this bill passes, and we decide to leave Wisconsin, one place we’re NOT going to is Virginia, at least until my kids graduate high school.

  3. I work with a lot of folks from Wisconsin

    From what I understand the schools are superior.

    But, hey, I’m sure those commie teachers have nothing to do with that!

    We’ll just replace em with folks making $10 an hour and no benefits–I’m sure it won’t make a difference right Badger State tea partiers?
