Walker should win if the election is fair.

So far, the Leftist courts in the state have unilaterally, without any rational basis whatsoever, struck down the common sense election poll integrity (voter I.D.) law.

Walker must, indeed, have won by an incredible margin if he was still able to overcome the polling place fraud perpetrated by Democrats.

YAY!!

You can bet your bottom dollar that there will be a strong effort to round up votes in cemeteries all over the state.

Every time he wins, he gets stronger.

As of now he’s my top choice for 2016 POTUS.

It would take about two minutes for anybody, anywhere, to get all caught up on where Mary Burke stands on almost any issue that is of interest to Wisconsin.

Whatever Scott Walker is striving to achieve, she would go to work immediately, as governor to dismantle it. Taxes go up, school districts would be reduced again to surrendering most of their autonomy to the union demands, and most of the “green” initiatives would be restored. Wisconsin would become Illinois North.

I firmly believe that the PENALTIES for VOTER FRAUD, VOTER INTIMIDATION and BALLOT TAMPERING/MANIPULATION shoule be so steep and severe that NO ONE in their right mind would ever risk it.

I am not saying that these offenses should warrant the death penalty, either. More along the lines of huge monetary penalties, permanent forfeiture of the right to vote and the inability to ever be the beneficiary of any/all tax-payer provided services would be a good start.

With all the good accomplishments he has achieved for the people of his state it is a wonder to me that anyone is running against him.

Of course, such is a rational approach. But the anarchists would whine and say that such stiff penalties would have the effect of "suppressing" the vote because they are so severe and "scare people away." I kid you not; these are the arguments these reprobates make.

I am not saying that these offenses should warrant the death penalty, either. More along the lines of huge monetary penalties, permanent forfeiture of the right to vote and the inability to ever be the beneficiary of any/all tax-payer provided services would be a good start.

A good long MANDATORY prison sentence (at least 3 years) would go a long way toward deterring such actions.

I agree with you about the anarchists and their incessant whining.

Personally I believe that they need a good, solid shot in the mouth when they start up with that crap....

But...that’s just me. I’ve had it with those bowl floaters.

“Personally I believe that they need a good, solid shot in the mouth when they start up with that crap....”

In the old days, you could do this w/o losing everything. A couple of men would get into an argument, beat the crap out of each other if it rose to that level (or one would get some sense knocked into him), and that would be that.

Today that is not the case as you risk losing everything you either own or will own in the courts (unless you’re a group of Union thugs on a quest to beat people that disagree with you).

Its amazing that the rise in “Progressive” politics has taken place during this time, isn’t it? :-) /sarcasm on

That would be a great bill...but “our” side would negotiate it down to “electronic voting booths where ever ballots are cast” and then claim victory.

Burke will have to play catch up to familiarize voters with her stance on issues; 70 percent of respondents say they have not heard enough about her to hold an opinion of her.

What makes Politico think that voters will fall for Burke's stance on the issues?

Oh, that's right, she's a Democrat. That means she'll be lying and the media will foist an uproar over some minutia about Walker. I forgot. /s

Right.

You don’t know how many letters, phone calls and e-mails I sent out in an effort to get my Reps to sponsor some sort of bill to do just that.

*CRICKETS*

What these people fail to understand is that the Right to Vote should be treated as sacrosanct. The price paid for this right has been far too high for it to be cheapened for political expediency.

I'm undecided at this point, but Walker is looking to an excellent choice. He may not be as ideologically "pure" as some may want but he has the benefit of being solidly within the Conservative mainstream, shows a willingness to identify the issues that are really causing problems and taking them on head-on, PLUS he has solid executive experience running a pretty large state. Of the candidates that have been mentioned to-date, he's definitely the most well-rounded (figuratively, can't beat Christie from a literal perspective).

I just want to see what candidates end up emerging and how they perform in the primaries.

At this point in the campaign right track/wrong track is more important than the horse race numbers. That'll change, of course, and any incumbent under 50% in a 2-way race is definitely in trouble, but if there's a good difference (looks to be 8 points right now) favoring right track then Walker's numbers should come up.

70% of voters haven’t heard of Burke? When they do, Walker’s number will go even higher.

I suspect that's the brain dead drop dead democrat bullet voter. All they know is she's a D. That's all they want to know. Those who don't know enough to have a preference is a much more significant figure.

Just a guess but the challenger was a single mom at 19 years old, who worked two jobs going to Harvard Law School, became a pole dancer at a strip club, but then turned her life around after a spiritual experience with Slick Willy Clinton.

It’s just registered voters and the swing is 3.5% he’s likely over 50 and she’s likely under 40 with likely voters. Registered voters might not have voted for decades.

Wisconsin is pretty much 50-50 R vs D. Walker being ahead by that margin means that he is getting the independents by his stellar, frugal government, which aligns with the right direction wrong direction numbers.

“The Marquette Law School poll has the Republican governor ahead 47 to 41 percent among registered voters”
Not good. He’s below 50%. If undecided break 2 to 1 for the challenger in an anti-incumbent year, then he “wins” by 51-49, close enough to steal. If they breat 3 to 1, then its 50-50.

Democrats do not deserve the right to vote after thousands of cases of voter fraud through many elections. Someone ought to bring suit, requiring them to show why they are not a danger to our nation’s freedom. They’ve been dragging their opposition into courts for years. Turn about is fair play, and it’s all about “fairness”, you know.

That's been my feeling for a while now. He's focused, reasonably conservative, and he doesn't back down from his goals. He seems to be able to unite people. A very good friend of mine lives in Wisconsin and she said the the Democrats pay college students to travel from precinct to precinct to vote multiple times and without voter ID, they get away with it. Voter ID needs to be the law of the land.

I agree with you entirely.

But who will enforce it? Holder? State Attorney Generals, who are being bought and elected by Soros and Bloomberg money?

Again, I agree... but it still goes back to the fact that when one side is clearly frauding the election results, and the law enforcement apparatus is controlled by those who are frauding the results, and the opposition party is wetting their panties over even the mere THOUGHT of fighting back...

Where do you go from there? Other than outright 1775 Lexington time...

Yep. I’m truly amazed that our “elected reps” haven’t figured that out, yet. If they had a clue, they would have already started hearings on the Articles of Impeachment rather than risk getting tossed out of office. I know for a fact that I’m not alone in telling them that they are derelict in their sworn duty to preserve and protect the Constitution and that they are going to pay a price for that.

“....telling them that they are derelict in their sworn duty to preserve and protect the Constitution...”

The problem is, they don’t care. They get into the taxpayer-financed-for-life” pipeline, they get comfortable, and they just don’t give a sh*t about it.

They have no understanding of Honor, because they HAVE no Honor.

They have no understanding of loyalty to an oath, because their only loyalty is to their selves - and in the Democrat case, to their commie party mentality.

In an age where honor is the exception rather than the rule, this is what we get.

And they’ll push until they’re MADE to stop pushing.
