Most Wisconsin voters don't believe Gov. Scott Walker's union talk

Walker's even lost the zombie vote.
He's a hero to tea partiers, but Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker keeps getting bad news from statewide polls.

The latest survey finds that just 31 percent of folks in Wisconsin have apparently bought into his line that he wants to strip public employees of their collective bargaining rights in order to help balance the state's budget.

The majority of those polled in the Wisconsin Public Radio survey, 57 percent, figure he's just trying to bust up public employee unions.

Sixty-one percent believe that those public employees have a right to bargain collectively. And just 39 percent approved of the way Republicans rammed through the legislation.

Buyer's remorse?
In March, a Rasmussen poll showed Walker didn't have majority support for the union busting bill. A Public Policy Polling survey showed most Wisconsin voters would have voted for his Democratic rival if they were given the option of a do-over. He's even lost the zombie vote.

None of this skimpy support bothers Walker and his supporters, who treat him like a hero and have gone so far as to boost the idea that he run for the White House, or at least vice president.

Meanwhile, Walker's union-busting bill has been bottled up by court challenges.

"Most Wisconsin voters"Nice Try Hart

"The majority of those polled in the Wisconsin Public Radio survey, 57 percent, figure he's just trying to bust up public employee unions."Ha, that's all you could come up?Even under the union friendly environment of a Wisconsin Public Radio survey?

Listen people, the last election of that Supreem Court Judge says it all. A special election where only the motivated electorate shows up to vote. And the truely motivated voter should be the unions in Wisconsin. There is the ones whom had an vested interest.But still this "anti Walker" position LOOSES....

These so called "public polls" are skewed.The proof is in the pudding -------------------------nice try to make this a "moral" issue green23It's a fiscal issue dumbass


It's interesting how quickly "the Will of The People" is forgotten whenever Republicans win elections. Remember, Obama is an evil, ruthless dictator because he ignores the Will of The People, despite winning election. When Republicans win election, it is their duty to ignore the Will of The People, however, and focus on beating up the opposition instead of creating 250K jobs - as was promised.

There are different standards for those on the Right, because they are "good" and hold the moral high ground. Once you designate yourself as one of the "good guys", you can cross any line with impunity and ignore all consequences of your actions. Any moral failings, crimes, or even bad decisions can be dismissed as "mistakes" which are automatically forgiven - even if you never admit that you did anything wrong.
