By charging straight at his critics, Wisconsin may actually be moving closer to the Republican column. Having assembled a seamless campaign to defend their imperiled star, party elders hope that his survival could foreshadow Romney's ability to ride a similar coalition of fiscal conservatives, Tea Partyers and heavyweight donors to an upset in the state in November. While Republicans haven't won Wisconsin on the presidential level since 1984, George W. Bush nearly pulled off the feat twice, and Romney is only a step or two behind Barack Obama in recent polls.

Anything can happen, but it looks promising. It would be the ultimate irony if Big Labor’s recalling of Scott Walker were to cost Obama the state in November.

I'd like to be a fly on the wall during the conversations on who was going to take the blame.

An awful lot of Republicans are already counting their chickens on this election. Very dangerous.

It all hinges on turnout. If the GOTV is handled in the same way Walker will do well and it will also help the Rep in the Senate being recalled.

I have been following this closely and the amount of misinformation and ignorance shown by the Left is stunning.

Big Labor’s recall is also helping to re-invigorate the Tea Party. A victory would be a major momentum builder going into the fall elections.
