    Millions in TV ads, but no poll movement for Scott Walker: Trails in new poll

    Interesting....this should be 'fun'.....



    A new Marquette Law School poll that’s generating lots of chatter today finds that Scott Walker and his most likely recall opponent, Tom Barrett, are in a dead heat, with Barrett edging Walker by 47-46 among registered Wisconsin voters.

    In January, Walker’s job approval was 51 percent; in March, it was 50 percent; and this month, it's 47 percent.

    What’s particularly interesting here is that just yesterday, Walker announced he’d raised a staggering $13 million in three months for the recall fight.

    This means the race is all going to come down to turnout — the one area where Dems and unions can match Walker in resources and organization, perhaps neutralizing Walker’s ad spending advantage, Franklin says.

    To say nothing of the time spent out of state drumming up these donations (at tax payer expense?) The righters scream foul when Obama does it but nary a peep when a Pub governor does it. IOKIYAR

    Agree. It is completely ridiculous that democrats have forced the citizens of Wisconsin to endure the wasted expenses and resources for a recall election for nothing more than political disagreements. It's really a shame that they can't accept the fact that they lost the last gubernatorial election fair and square, and spend their time and resources preparing for the next regularly scheduled election.

    This goes beyond that and you know it.

    Recalls are a part of our process.

    In Omaha, I think it had the net effect of waking the mayor up, though I'm sure his foes would disagree with me.

    You would be wrong when you state..."DEMOCRATS have forced the citizens of Wisconsin to endure.....blah blah." The recall petition signatures cut across all political lines, age groups, gender, and socio-economic groups. Secondly, how were the citizens of Wisconsin FORCED to do anything? Walker and the Pubs are in the process of destroying Wisconsin in a number of different ways so recall petitions are a perfectly acceptable and fully democratic way of correcting what was clearly a giant mistake.

    Obama's is clearly at taxpayer expense. I just googled and couldn't find any information accusing Walker of traveling out of state or for any campaign purposes using state money (or airplanes, etc etc) Do you have any backup for that allegation, or did you just make it up to get indignant about?

    See the question mark? I didn't make any accusation, just wondered. Even if Walker is spending his own money to stump the country trying to raise money, shouldn't he be in Wisconsin doing the people's business instead??

    150 bucks proudly came from me and once the dem primary is settled Walker will proudly get more from me, if I can help hammer the final stake into the heart of the Wisconsin Union Thugs I will do what I can.

    Wonder how many bus loads of public union workers, let off work with pay, will be transported to vote on the taxpayer dime?

    In statistics it's generally a good idea to identify the outliers and get rid of em. Could politics be the same?

    This is my thing with this. Unions flat out lied on there TV commercials here in Ohio over SB5 which was Ohio's version of the Wisconsin bill.

    All these laws said was it gives the elected people the power to control what unions can get paid in salary and benefits.

    Some of the union guys I work with don't think the voters or the elected officials should have the say in what they get paid only the courts or (collective bargaining which is tipped in the union favor)

    So Red Reign and Warhorse:

    What is wrong with treating a union how the private sector is treated? That is all these laws are doing. Making it a level playing field.
