So far, it looks that way.
If these sorts of numbers hold up, the unions, the Democrats, and Mr. Obama will have managed to turn a local setback into a major defeat by accepting battle on a ground not of their own choosing.
That poll is a national, not a Wisconsin poll.
What are the Wisconsin-only numbers? Last week Walker was apparently behind.
As you may know, Gov. Scott Walker has proposed a plan to limit the pay of government workers and teachers, increase their share of the cost of benefits, and strip some public-employ unions of much of their power. We’d like to know if APPROVE or DISAPPROVE of Gov. Walker’s plan.
43% approved, 53% disapproved. But that was last week, the question is slanted, events have moved on and that is only one poll. (That same poll found that by 55/36 people wanted the Democrat senators to return to the capitol.)
I don’t see any other Wisconsin-only polls. If anyone knows of one please put a link in the comments.
It is too early to say how this will all play out.
