Your Warming Thought Of The Day

Governor Russ Feingold:
A new statewide, scientific poll, conducted with a random sample of actual Wisconsin voters in the 2010 Governor’s Election (reliable within +/- 4.9 percentage points), finds voters in Wisconsin sharply divided on current issues related to the state’s multi-billion dollar deficit problem. The poll, conducted by veteran polling company, Ethridge & Associates, L.L.C., a Tennessee-based firm, finds voters about evenly divided (within the poll’s margin of error) on collective bargaining for public employees (48% favor / 46% oppose) and on Governor Scott Walker’s plan to end collective bargaining (50% oppose / 47% support).  Additionally, a slight majority, 51%, of voters oppose recalling Governor Scott Walker, with 44% supporting this idea. That is, until they consider a possible candidacy of Senator Russ Feingold, whom some are drafting to run against Walker in a recall election; then, Walker falls below 50% and ties with Feingold, 48% to 48%.
And if Walker keeps on his course of folly, which he is too full of hubris not to, those numbers will continue to grow in favor of the working people of Wisconsin.

  1. Wished the gap was larger. Thought the voters of Wisconsin were smarter than that.

  2. Those numbers will be coming our way in time. A Tennessee polling firm too. What, the Colorado outfit that collected all the signatures against Holperin and Hansen wasn't available?
