Walker's campaign is determined to act like fact check services don't exist or fully comprehend the depth and complexity of Walker's brilliance.
jsonline: Gov. Scott Walker runs ahead of four potential Democrat rivals for governor but tops out at 48% support in those 2014 matchups, says a new survey by Public Policy Polling (Sept. 13-16).The good news is we’re talking about completely unknown Democratic candidates.
Walker led Assembly Minority Leader Peter Barca 47%-43%, former Commerce Secretary Mary Burke 48%-42%, Outagamie County Executive Tom Nelson 47%-40%, and State Senator Kathleen Vinehout 47%-41%.
Evidence of how little-known the potential Democratic field is at this point came in the poll’s favorability ratings: At least 60% of respondents has not formed an opinion of the Democrats. The lack of name recognition for the Democrats tested in the poll means the eventual nominee “should have more room to grow” support, the firm said.For some reason, independents have not been reading this blog, and Democrats continues to spin in circles with little motivation or urgency…again:
The polling firm noted Walker leads by 5-10 points with independents in all four matchups, and takes an average of 12% of the Democratic vote while losing only 7% of Republicans Walker’s job approval rating again was split: 49% disapprove, 48% approve.No really, Democratic wavering on everything is still our biggest problem:
In the poll, PPP noted, an average of 14% of Democrats are undecided, compared to just 4% of Republicans.Walker, with his stunning response, offered up a list of recently proven and well publicized lies. If he sticks with these same talking points, and I hope he does, Democrats could easily take this.
An abortion question generated the poll’s clearest result: 47% said they opposed “the abortion law passed by the legislature” in 2013, while 20% said they supported it.
The poll asked if protesters at the Solidarity Sing Alongs in the Capitol rotunda should have to get a permit. Respondents were split: 45% said no, 41% said yes. Of the poll’s 1,180 voters, 32% self-identified as Democrats, 28% as Republicans and 41% as independents or something else.
Walker's campaign had this to say: "Governor Walker’s focus is on helping Wisconsin move forward. He has balanced a $3.6 billion deficit, cut income taxes, and Wisconsin has seen its best two year job growth in a decade under any governor. We're confident that voters want to continue moving forward, and have no desire to return to the failed policies of the past."He did provide income tax cuts, which will balloon the debt, but he also increased taxes on low income families.
