Skip to comments.54% in Wisconsin Oppose Recall of GOP Governor Walker
Posted on 02/29/2012 12:01:37 PM PST by SeekAndFind
Most Wisconsin voters approve of the job embattled Governor Scott Walker is doing and oppose the effort to recall him from office before the next election.
A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey finds that 52% of Likely Wisconsin Voters at least somewhat approve of Walkers job performance to date, while 46% at least somewhat disapprove. These findings include 40% who Strongly Approve of how the Republican governor is doing and just as many (40%) who Strongly Disapprove. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

The survey of 500 Likely Voters in Wisconsin was conducted on February 27, 2012 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 4.5 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.
(40%) who Strongly Disapprove
I didn’t know union membership in WI was that high.
More wasted Union money. I love it!
I’m not surprised by these numbers. Other than union militants and liberal Democrats, I can’t see why anyone would be upset with the job Walker has done, especially when all the negative things that the union propagandists said were going to happen didn’t. There were no mass layoff of public employees that would have occurred without Walker’s plan and local governments and school districts have avoided raising taxes. Like with the Wisconsin Supreme Court justice’s election, the unions spent millions for nothing and will just have that much less to give for Obama’s campaign.
The 54% have had this garbage shoved in our face for over a year. I predict there will be a backlash at the polls when this election is ultimately held. Those who support Walker have been forced to remain quiet, but the frustration level will burst at the polls and Walker will be reeclected by a comfortable margin.
Democrats will then seek to exploit some other imagined offense to start the cycle all over again. We have seen this play before, only Bush was the main character and AlGore was the was the poor injured party in the 2000 election. We all know how that turned out. Bush was reelected in 2004 despite the daily, non-stop, shrill caterwauling.
They are unhinged in this state. They are the haves and they want more and no one has the right to deny them anything.
“I didnt know union membership in WI was that high.”
It’s not only the labor boys and girls who are pi$$ed at Walker. Every non-labor affiliated lefty in the state holds a grudge as well.
Wisconsin had lot of heavy industry at one time. So union labor was ubiquitous. Especially in areas adjacent to Chicago area such as Rockford, Milwaukee. I am not sure how much of that heavy industrial base has been lost since I retired in 1998. When I started my jobs in Chicago industrial complex, there was a huge number of large industrial plants present. Slowly, they moved to southern states to get away from unions. All those empty manufacturing plants & buildings in Chicago were so depressing. My own company was non-union for many years and did very well. Then union came in, and that started the downward trend with eventual bankruptcy and shuttering of the manufacturing plant.
Is this poll about accurate, I so hope and pray?
If it is, Praise God and the good work of your wonderful Governor and you all.
WTF is wrong with this country? Did I miss a downwardly spiraling decade or two, somewhere?
Militant teachers; the very reasons they were hired. /s
I’ve seen my fill of them on TV down here in the deep South. Not a care in the world about the children they’re supposed to teach. Just give ‘em their benefits. Man what a disasterous looking bunch. More than a couple of the female teachers I spotted, looked like they better belonged in Farakhan’s Million Man March.
The 56% are moderate, average sorts who usually vote. The 40% are militant rats who always vote. The 16% differential could mean nothing if any significant numbers of the 56% are too tired or too busy to vote.
This is great news for our conservative neighbors in Wisconsin. Walker is succeeding with his agenda despite maniacal Unionista/Democrat chaos and a reprehensible, ongoing media (primarily the Journal Sentinel) bias.
Normally only madmen take those jobs up there.
Absolutely true. I remember going to a meeting at my daughter's HS at the height of last year's frenzy, and it was like we were going to be treated to a Jonestown reenactment at any moment.
Within the margin of vote cheating I’d say
translation: something north of 40% of the population is prepared to vote for Socialism no matter what.
At some point they become a joke...to even themselves
Wisconsin law exempts the Walker campaign from normal spending limits. The opposition on the other hand does so they will not be able to spend it all!
