(Reuters) - Republican Governor Scott Walker's lead widened slightly over Milwaukee Democratic Mayor Tom Barrett in the run-up to the Wisconsin recall election, according to a poll on Wednesday. The Marquette Law School poll showed Walker had a 50 to 44 percent lead over Barrett, who lost by a similar margin to Walker in the 2010 governor's race. The recall vote is June 5. Only three percent of likely voters are undecided, according to the poll conducted from May 9 to 12. The extremely low number of undecided voters is unusual in a month-long campaign.

Ed Schultz of MSNBC and his gay sidekick, John Nichols of "The Nation", both on the payroll of the Unions (Ed Schultz admitted it when the checks to him were discovered, Nichols is still being shy about it) are reportedly drinking themselves into oblivion after being some of the biggest pushers of this recall Governor Walker fiasco. So ED, TELL US how many millions of union members union dues are being piss*d away?

President Scott Walker

It sure has a pleasing affect. : )

Someday perhaps he will pursue what would be a most wonderful shot of "TRUE hope" for our country in the future.

I won’t stop worrying until the election is over. But I must say, it’s extremely pleasing to see Rooters and MSNBC going with this story. Plus the news that Obama and the DNC have decided to withhold any more funding from the recall effort—at least any more funding over the table where we can see it.

Mr. Walker wont’t be elected president in 25 weeks that’s a fact.

However, the MSM hasn’t been touting him for the veepstakes, not a single word.

Why is this? Easy, Walker scares the hell out of them.

My wife needed to go down to the south side of Milwaukee today, and she noted many Walker yard signs. Very weird for inner Milwaukee, as that is the Democrat core. She said, “I couldn’t tell you what a Barrett sign looks like. Didn’t see one.”

Out here in Dodge county, it’s back-to-back Walker signs, many hand-made and painted. Very well done. If people are fired-up enough to make their own signs, they must be committed!

Recall election night results will be “must see tv” indeed!

FIrst time I saw that was when Scott Brown ran for the empty senate seat vacated by Ted Kennedy. The local media never gave Brown a chance but when I started seeing hand-made lawn signs for Scott Brown, I knew something special was about to happen.

Dems have nothing to worry about. The Milwaukee polls will be open for business over the Memorial weekend, thus allowing them to vote early and vote often. I can just see the busses coming from all directions.... Additionally, I can see the signs for lines stating, “Get your voting addresses here”. Certainly there won’t be anything illegal taking place (sarc.)
