    Wisconsin voters express buyer’s remorse over Gov. Scott Walker - Yahoo! News

    Two months into his first term, a new poll shows Wisconsin voters are unhappy with GOP Gov. Scott Walker--and would send him packing if they were given a do-over of the 2010 election that sent him to the statehouse in Madison.
    Amid the firestorm Walker touched off in going after the state's public-sector unions, voters indicated to Public Policy Polling (PDF) that Walker would lose a rematch with his Democratic opponent, Milwaukee mayor Tom Barrett, if the election were held today. Fifty-two percent of respondents said that today they would vote for Barrett and 45 percent said they would vote for Walker. Walker's job approval/disapproval was also 46 to 52 percent in the poll. PPP is considered to be a Democratic-allied firm

    Walker is up for reelection in 2014. While there will still assuredly be people who are bitter at him over this union business, most voters will likely judge him according to how the state is performing at that time. If he has been successful in getting the budget under control without increasing the burden on the residents and the state economy has improved, he will likely be reelected.

    In my experience, PPP is just as reliable as any of the other major polling firms. There is no reason to not believe the results.

    This man is clearly a great American because he's wearing a USA flag lapel pin.

    Now that isn't saying much.

    Most of the other major polling firms aren't reliable.

    Seems the only people that are really pissed at the Governor are all of the carpet-baggers they shipped in to scum up the statehouse.

    An Assembly woman that was threatened by a Democrat said she needs a bottle of disinfectant to touch anything in the place because of all of the slim-balls that have been camping out in there for the last two weeks.
