    Americans oppose weakening the bargaining rights of public employee unions by a margin of nearly two to one: 60 percent to 33 percent. While a slim majority of Republicans favored taking away some bargaining rights, they were outnumbered by large majorities of Democrats and independents who said they opposed weakening them.

    Those surveyed said they opposed, 56 percent to 37 percent, cutting the pay or benefits of public employees to reduce deficits, breaking down along similar party lines. A majority of respondents who have no union members living in their households opposed both cuts in pay or benefits and taking away the collective bargaining rights of public employees.

    Governors in both parties have been making the case that public workers are either overpaid or have overly generous health and pension benefits. But 61 percent of those polled — including just over half of Republicans — said they thought the salaries and benefits of most public employees were either “about right” or “too low” for the work they do.

    Let's see:

    Scott Walker ran on what he is doing now.

    He won the vote.

    That's the only poll that counts in this nation.

    He said nothing about stealing a persons rights, to improve the republicans chances of being elected again. He also said he wouldn't borrow to finanace the budget, but that is what he is doing.
    Right now the people are against him, and you know it.

    A NY times poll.

    gee, no bias there.

    doesn't matter really. all he wants is for the state union to have the same level of power as the Fed union.

    oh the horror of it all, the state won't go under taking the tax payer with it.

    goons like you should send him thanks for not firing everyone and privatizing the state work to the best bidder.

    More would get done faster at a lesser cost to the state and the tax payer,

    Republicans are finding out real quick their radical policy is un-American and calling everyone else that because they are spoiled brats who think they get what they want. Sorry, you don't. We compromise in America, unlike you.
