Marquette Law School Poll Shows Walker, Kleefisch Lead in Recall

So the other day a PPP poll (Democratic pollster - and the poll was done for the Daily Kos no less) came out that had Romney and Obama statistically tied in WI.

Now an additional poll has come out - this time a Marquette Law School poll:

Romney 46, Obama 46 - among likely voters

Wisconsin is a TOSSUP - and Obama won it by 14 points in 2008!

Also, there's even more for the unions to be unhappy about as this is the third poll (at least the third poll that I'm aware of) that has come out over the past few days showing the hero for hardworking Wisconsin taxpayers - Governor Walker - with a clear lead over Tom Barrett in the recall election.

Governor Walker 50, Tom Barrett 44

Also, Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch is leading her opponent - Mahlon Mitchell - 47-41.

Additionally, more WI voters want to maintain the new collective bargaining laws than want the changes reversed.

Too bad, so sad for the unions. We will all have to cry for them.

I love it when the mindless union hacks try to claim Walker is responsible for losing jobs in Wisconsin. These are the same people that are falling over themselves claiming that Barry Obama can't possibly be held accountable for anything because of the "mess" Bush supposedly left. Yet in Wisconsin these same imbeciles blame Walker for everything bad under the sun after less than two years in office. Hypocritical pigs anyone?

I am a teacher in Illinois that belongs to a union. I am so glad that Governor Walker has instituted these reforms in Wisconsin, and am sick of all the whiners in IL that will raise a hissy fit when anyone talks about raising their healthcare or pension contribution. WI has chosen to solve their problems in a mature manner that requires sacrifice from everyone, while IL continues to be held hostage by the unions, living in a fairytale world that continues to drive the state into bankruptcy. Kudos to Wisconsin, and to the voters for doing what is the right, common-sense thing to do.

Yep. The libs and union hacks never let facts get in the way of using these buzzwords either:

- "War on the middle class"
- 1% and 99%
- Prevailing wage
- Big business
- Corporations
- Minimum wage

The Democrats love to paint themselves as the lovers of the "worker," but a close examination of virtually ANY Dem policy (Keystone pipeline, Solyndra, regulations, etc.) does not result in an advantage to the worker. For example, my 15-year old brother was told by the State of IL that he could not wash cars at a car dealership last year because the stationary vehicles "might" move and run him over. What is up with this?

Agreed. Unions are the cancer on this country's soul. I hope we kill them for good. Thanks for being objective.

BIG GUBBMINT..it needs to control everything from the size of your toilet bowl to the amount of seasoning you can put in your soup. For them, there is only one solution for all problems - just throw more taxpayer money at it. Still not working? Let's add just one more gubmint agency to "fix" that.

Our Founding Fathers will be turning in their graves seeing what we have become - a bloated bureaucracy gone wild. Where how deep an impression you make with your 400lb ass on your chair counts more than performance. Mooching freeloaders have remade this country into a "handout nation".

Would you like to see collective bargaining for public employees returned to what it was before last year or keep the current law that eliminated most collective bargaining?
N %
Return collective bargaining 301 43
Keep as it is now 352 50
Love this.

Now, you probably know what the left will try next.

So far, that John Doe investigation has Walker in the clear.

You just KNOW that the Milwaukee democrat in charge will make up a bogus claim to charge Walker with. This is how they do things.

Remember Ted Stevens?

Charged him with a bogus charge to get him out of office by effecting the election..turned out the whole thing was made up.

What are the benefits of going back to collective bargaining for Wisconsin?

Why does Obama and even FDR oppose giving collective bargaining to federal employees?

Would Wisconsin be better off if the teacher union owned health insurance provider went back to having a monopoly so it could overcharge the government/local school districts 30% above fair market value for health insurance?

What would Wisconsin gain by taking money out of the school districts and placing it in the Union's hands? More donations to democrats and less money for textbooks, teacher pay, new computers, etc...

Kerry-Edwards ticket gets support from 49 percent of registered voters, while President Bush and Vice President Cheney get 41 percent

You are wasting your time if you think there is any information in a poll conducted 6-months before an election.

The more Kerry spoke, debated, etc. the more he sounded like an out of touch rich guy who had lived with a limitless amount of money for the vast majority of his life.

Sound familiar?
