    The Atlantic ^ | June 5, 2012 | Molly Ball
    It doesn't mean Obama is going to lose, but the failed attempt to recall Scott Walker gives Democrats and organized labor reason to fear an emboldened conservative agenda. It's important to remember, as Democrats cope with their failure to topple Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker in Tuesday's recall, that this was a fight they chose. Unlike the vast majority of elections, which occur on a regular schedule, the recall was a fight the left picked on purpose. They picked it because they thought they could win. And they were wrong. It wasn't even close. With two-thirds of the votes reported late...

    Well if exit polls showed 50/50 race for Walker and ends up say 58/42, then a 53/42 exit polling for Obama could potentially be 50/45 Romney, based on how badly they missed real results

    National Right To Life News ^ | June 6, 2012 | Dave Andrusko
    By the time you read this post, we can hope that pro-life Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker will have rebuffed a recall election. Gov. Walker is a long-time hero for the pro-life cause, having begun his advocacy as the student pro-life leader at Marquette University, the same entity which conducted the poll. His opponent, Tom Barrett, has an extensive voting history in favor of abortion, having voted for taxpayer funding of abortion and for partial-birth abortion when he was a member of Congress. But either way, not so long ago it would have been heresy to think that Wisconsin was “in...
  • Rebecca Kleefisch survives recall, holds onto Lt. Gov. seat (WI)

    Wisconsin Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch survived a recall attempt Tuesday, June 5th, defeating her Democratic challenger Mahlon Mitchell and avoiding becoming the first lieutenant governor in the nation to be recalled. Kleefisch, a Republican, was the only lieutenant governor in the U.S. to face a recall election. Now she’s also the first to survive one. She faced a recall along with her boss, Republican Gov. Scott Walker. Democrats and unions had been angered after Walker and the GOP-led Legislature took on public-sector union rights last year.

    WKBT News 8000 ^ | June 5, 2012
    Veteran Senate Republican Leader Scott Fitzgerald has defeated Democrat Lori Compas in Tuesday's recall elections. Democrats angry with Republican Gov. Scott Walker's contentious plan that all but ended most public workers' union rights forced the governor, Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch, Fitzgerald and two other GOP senators into recalls. They also were trying to capture an open seat in Tuesday's elections. Walker claimed he had to impose the union restrictions to balance the state budget. Democrats saw the moves as a direct attack on organized labor. Compas, a Fort Atkinson photographer, has never held public office and faced a difficult fight...

    With the Wisconsin recall election in full swing Tuesday, the roving video patrols of Revealing Politics, a new conservative political website, were in the Badger State talking to voters. Journalist Christian Hartsock caught one bandana-clad liberal protester on camera in the capital city of Madison, threatening Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch. “Run, get the f--- out of the state,” he advised the lieutenant governor … We’re coming after her anyways, so it doesn’t freaking matter anyways, win or lose.” Asked what protesters would do with Kleefisch if they found her, he answered, “I don’t know, hopefully the colon cancer will take...

    Organized labor is trying to re-energize and take advantage of the growing backlash from the wave of anti-union sentiment in Wisconsin and more than a dozen other states. President Barack Obama and his political machine are offering tactical support, eager to repair strained relations with some union leaders upset over his recent overtures to business. The potent combination has helped fan the huge protests in Wisconsin against a measure that would strip collective bargaining rights from state workers. The alliance also is sending a warning to other states that are considering the same tactic. "I think it's a clear message,"...
  • Early Wisconsin recall exit polls: 60 percent say recalls are only for official misconduct

    CBS News ^ | June 5, 2012 | Kevin Hechtkopf
    Sixty percent of Wisconsin voters in today's recall election say recall elections are only appropriate for official misconduct, according to early CBS News exit polls. Twenty-eight percent said they think they are suitable for any reason, while nine percent think they are never appropriate. Today's recall election in Wisconsin pits Republican Gov. Scott Walker versus Democratic Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, in a rematch of their 2010 race. According to the early exit polls, 6 percent say they decided on their candidate in the last few days, with 93 percent saying they made up their minds before that. The recall effort...

    Mitt Romney just issued this statement congratulating Scott Walker for his victory in tonight's Wisconsin recall election: “I congratulate Scott Walker on his victory in Wisconsin. Governor Walker has demonstrated over the past year what sound fiscal policies can do to turn an economy around, and I believe that in November voters across the country will demonstrate that they want the same in Washington, D.C. Tonight’s results will echo beyond the borders of Wisconsin. Governor Walker has shown that citizens and taxpayers can fight back – and prevail – against the runaway government costs imposed by labor bosses. Tonight voters...

    Any way you look at it, the recall election of Republican Governor Scott Walker of Wisconsin is coming down to the wire. Poll leading up to today showed Walker with a small, but significant, lead. Additionally, exit polls show that he likely received the most votes. However, polls are not necessarily reliable. Allegations of voter fraud have come from both sides. Voter turnout is very high. And no matter what side of the political spectrum you reside, you know that this is an important election with large ramifications come November. So we ask you: who will win today's race in...

    With 19 percent of precincts reporting, Scott Walker holds a lead of 61% to challenger Tom Barrett's 39%. With such a lead, Pundit Press can now project that Scott Walker will win his recall election. Despite Unions pushing mightily against him and President Obama... tweeting his support for Barrett, Scott Walker has won decisively. Now he can concentrate on bring Wisconsin further into prosperity. What the implications will be for November can only be surmised. However, there is no doubt that Walker's win is a stunning mandate against the President and in favor of responsible government.
