Walker regains Wisconsin.

We wake up to disappointing news from Wisconsin:

Walker , Scott (i) GOP 1,331,076 53%
Barrett , Tom Dem 1,158,337 46%

While Barrett took the cities (where there has been the strongest action by the Walker Administration to

eliminate Union influence), Scott Walker took everything else.

There is some other news, however. One of the State Senate seats previously held by Republicans was filled by a Democrat,thus bringing a new majority to that body. This may help prevent more of Walker.s cutting actions in the next couple of years.

Dismal morning… I’m going back to bed.

 

The Wisconsin Vote is Today…

It looks like the numbers are favoring Scott Walker as Wisconsinites go to the polls this morning for the recall election. This is going to be an example of how effective millions of dollars of out-of-state money from the likes of the Koch brothers can be against locally raised funds.

Perhaps we are losing what has historically been a liberal state to unbelievable right wing lies. I hope not.

It would be a revival of pure democracy if Walker lost. Keep your fingers crossed.

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%.
The huge shift comes, not surprisingly, from union members.

The results are the latest findings to show Walker losing support as the stalemate wears on.
