Default Wisconsin Recall Election

Is a big deal. This is a clear referendum on the pros and cons of big government. May be a harbinger of Fall election. Here we have a Dem poll showing Gov. Walker is in good shape.
A new Public Policy Polling poll in Wisconsin shows that neither of the main Democratic challengers to Gov. Scott Walker are leading him — Walker holds a 5-point lead over Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett and a 7-point lead over labor-backed former Dane County Executive Kathleen Falk.

Tuesday was a bad night for the labor movement. In Wisconsin, with only token opposition, incumbent Gov. Scott Walker got 97 percent of the vote in the Republican primary, and almost as many votes were cast for him than in the entire Democratic primary combined. This is a bad sign for Democrats. The percentage of the vote Walker received seemed more appropriate for Mugabe than the former county executive of Milwaukee.

Walker up 9 pts, 52-43 in a Milwaukee Journal poll. It's coming apart for the Dems and their unions.

Notice how mainstream media has abandoned this recall race as the DNC pulls out and four polls have Walker at 50%.

They abandon every issue after they've milked it for what they can. That's what Obama is going to do every week or so until the election.

We've gone from "recall", to "war on woman", to "Trayvon", to "dog on car roof", to "Romney giving gay boy a haircut 47 years ago" to ....I'm sure that I missed half a dozen or more, but they all last anywhere from a week to a month, and all designed to keep John Q. Public from noticing the economy.

It is typical of the liberal media. Something happens they don't like, they pretend it didn't happen. They have only been doing this the past 40 years. Walker wins and if forced to report it, it will somehow by spun it is a win for Obama.

There will be a poll somewhere which says that most people hate Walker and/or hate what he's doing, and since liberals considers polls more conclusive than actual elections, that will be a win for big government--->Barack Obama. I wish I was joking....

Wisconsin recall slipping away from Democrats
Posted by Aaron Blake at 03:14 PM ET, 05/18/2012



Just two and a half weeks remain in the recall of Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R), and momentum seems to be firmly on the GOP’s side.

Maybe it's me, but the declining national coverage of Wisconsin race seems to confirm exactly what a BFD it is.

Wow. MKE Journal-Sentinel endorses Scott Walker. Walker told me Monday he didn't think they'd endorse

This just keeps showing what I have stated for years now. The liberal media had total control of all media for decades and look at how they either under report or ignore stories outright that do not help their agenda and spreading what they want to brainwash the masses with. They tried to get Walker ousted and from the looks, it didn't work, so now they will pretend nothing is happening in WI.

Yes, the media only wants to report positive stories about Democrats and negative stories about Republicans. They are going to run out of things to report on this November. Oh wait, they'll try to spin this as some kind of positive news for Democrats no matter how stupid it will sound.

I have a couple of friends (husband and wife) from my distant past that I've connected with on Facebook. They both call themselves Progressives, and the husband is very pro-union. He sent me a link to a FB app regarding the Walker recall. I declined. He is of course very much for the recall, even though he lives in Washington state. I've noticed he's been very, very quiet about it for the past few months.

Democrats are dreading a Wisconsin wipeout
By Jennifer Rubin

Given current polling, it is not surprising that Democrats in Wisconsin are freaking out. The Wall Street Journal reports: “With little more than two weeks until Wisconsin’s gubernatorial recall election, some Democratic and union officials quietly are expressing fears that they have picked a fight they won’t win and that could leave lingering injuries.” No one is bothering to claim a Scott Walker victory would be insignificant:

If Wisconsin turns into the Left’s Waterloo two weeks from today, Mitt Romney’s campaign may take a fresh look at making it Barack Obama’s as well. The Wall Street Journal analyzes the impact that a defeat in the Badger State will have on Democrats and the unions, and the new talk of Wisconsin being the kind of swing state that could decide this election:
