DailyKos panicked today after Scott Walker appeared to beat every one of the potential candidates in the upcoming recall election. Not Russ Feingold, but hey, he's not running.
It appears the DailyKos is forgetting about the Democratic challengers, their arguments for change, and candidate debates. There's time enough to make our arguments and time enough for Walker's mess to spread.
When Marquette pollsters asked, respondents were split right down the middle on changes to collective bargaining -- 48 percent were for them, 47 percent were against them. But there is a huge difference on whether state workers should pay more for pension and health benefits -- 74 percent favor them paying more, while 22 percent are opposed. Overall, half of respondents believe our state is headed in the right direction, while 46 percent don't.
This may seem close, but Wegge says don't let this figure fool you. "The folks who are in opposition to Walker have a much greater intensity. They strongly disapprove of him whereas those who approve of him have a softer approval, so the intensity could come into play" in a recall election, Wegge said.
