Well that may explain why Obama who is in Chicago and Minneapolis this weekend is not stopping off in Wisconsin to campaign for Barlett.

Would love to see a 55-45 win in WI...and it looks like it could be possible.

Don’t let up WI. We need this to be a blowout of epic proportions. Don’t let up. It’s still 0-0 until the polls close (figuratively).

I love to see the millions the unions have wasted going up in smoke. I hope they spend every last dollar.

Since this thing quieted down a long time ago, many have said that those forcing the recall wished they had not started what they had to finish because the writing was on the wall.

I expect they are going to look very foolish when all is said and done on this one.

WeAskAmerica poll of Likely Voters last week had Walker up by 12%. I don't think Bartlett made any positive progress for the last seven days.

“It’s still 0-0 until the polls close (figuratively).”

Well put. That could be said of any election. (I’d probably have said “literally”, not “figuratively”.)

Walker will need a healthy lead, not just to overcome the rampant D-Rat voter fraud that is undoubted in the pike, but also to pull the four recalled senators and Lt. Governor over the finish line with him.

Everyone needs to keep the recalled Senators and Lt Governor in their prayers (and in donations) as well, not just Walker. A loss in the Senate will be just as devastating.

The class of people dubbed “likely” voters does not and cannot take into account fraudulent votes. The time for celebratory euphoria is not yet.

What a bunch of hypocrites these cops are. The stinking hippies were allowed to desecrate our State Capital building day and night for months on end. They broke through windows to get in, cooked in it, chanted, stunk it up, acted like “zomb...ies”, compared Walker to Hitler, used foul language, etc, and the Capital police turned their backs. Our congresspeople had their lives and the lives of their families threatened and had to be escorted out to their cars through underground tunnels. This cost taxpayers millions of dollars and this “recall” crap is costing millions more. Union thuggery at its finest here in Wisconsin-coming to a state near you soon if we don’t win this do-over election AGAIN on June 5th

With all this positive news about Walker, the biggest problem is people getting complacent and not going to vote on election day, thinking that it is in the bag already.

Good post and you are so right! The worst thing that could happen would be for Republicans to become complacent and the Dems to try their usual dirty tricks.

People in WI should go to the polls the way voters did when Reagan beat Carter. People in CA stood in line for an hour to vote for Reagan even though they knew he had already won! That’s the kind of spirit we need to see in WI.

uh. msnbc? please don’t get complacent now. as a conservative and tea partier, i never participate in these foolish polls or surveys (for one thing, it is better to remain “formless” and enigmatic to one’s enemy, as Sun Tzu taught in the art of war). and if i were to use them politically, i would use them as disinformation to manipulate, mislead and/or dispirit my opponents.

for now, it’s still petal to the metal through election day. still contributing with local get out the vote groups and directly to the state senate recalls.

Recalls work if the candidate lied on his promises or he committed a crime. Gov Walker spelled out his agenda for all the voters to see. Trying to redo an election after losing one with a recall does not sit well in a democracy. That is why Gov Walker is winning the recall.

I really hope some conservative media sources are undercover with the out of state union members who are being brought in by bus. You know many of them are talking about how to cast a vote.

That would make for delicious television and would also send a warning shot across the bow going into the November national elections.

It would also make Holder look silly.

Absolutely true. We need to get every single Repub/conservative/independent (for Walker of course) to vote on Tuesday. I hope & pray that WI voters turn out in droves and just bury the RAT bastards demoRATs. Not only the union waffler Tom Barrett, but also we need to create so much momemtum to carry over into the 4 state senate recalls and Rebecca Kleefisch as well.

Dear God in Heaven, we need your divine strength & power this coming Tuesday, June 5. Please do not allow any victory for the commie pig RAT bastard evil demoRATs & unions. I pray that you will send car trouble, home trouble, financial mistakes, whatever it takes to discourage RAT bastard demoRATs & union members to even show up at the polls. In Jesus Name, Amen

Thousands of them, in fact there have already been spotted buses from other states (Missouri) filled with union goons coming to vote last week, since the polls are open (for cheating) for the entire 2 weeks preceding June 5. I seem to recall (I think) that even Scott Walker acknowledged there will be approx 2-3% illegal votes cast by the dimTurds & union goons. We have got to destroy the demoRATs & unions so completely that they will be unable to raise their evil voices again. May God strike down with sickness or terminal illness any voter who casts an illegal vote.

union membership is down by as much as 50% in some areas because dues are no longer automatically deducted.
