It is amazing that even voters with union members in their family and voters that were union members even voted for Walker. You would expect to see none of them voting for him. I guess even they had enough of this huge waste of time and money.
One opponent outspending the other 8:1, 55% voter turn out, and rallying around a candidate that already failed to beat Walker previously.
I am absolutely shocked. Democracy at it's best.
Thomas - One opponent outspending the other 8:1,
If the message stinks the voters don't buy it. The Democrats message and tactics stank.
55% voter turn out
Very high! Presidential election levels. Are you claiming this is low?
and rallying around a candidate that already failed to beat Walker previously
Well, stupid is as stupid does.... Pretty much sums up the Democrats. The union backed lackey would have lost by 20%.
I am hearing that some of the votes for walker were more because of the recall than what they thought about him as a governor but people are still stupid enough to vote for him against their best interest and keep the garbage in power instead of throwing it out.
Some people are really and truly downright dumb!!!
Put a price on the free publicity the Democrat received from CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC and MSNBC and that outspending 8:1 sure does change.
And Scott Walker still has a CRIMINAL DEFENSE FUND!
Okay, so based on Democrat logic that Walker won because he collected and spend more money than Barrett than logically Obama should win the presidency since he collects and spends more money than Romney in ads.
Don't democrats not pay attention to polls? As I've always said they do if they're in their favor and not otherwise.
This recall was not for the working class guy it was for the unions and that's why they lost. Remember its the working class that pays taxes also. Walker didn't fire or lay off any public workers, he didn't cut anything just curb the endless give aways to the unions. Public union workers in wisconsin still make 22 percent more than nonunion workers. It kinda of reminds of me of holloween if you put out the bowl of goodies kids will take all they can there has to be some balance and what's walker is trying to do.
Media and Money won last night, 65% out of state money to Walker 25% out of state money for Barrett. Media covered this election like national election
OK Myviews... So if Romney outspends Obama 8-1, he might have a chance in WI. Sounds like you should be on his strategy team... Good luck with that.
Last night's vote in Wisconsin is most likely a strong indicator of the Presidential Election in November. The Govenor's races, Congressional elections in 2010 all leaning Republician and more Conservative hasn't changed much. People need jobs. Obama and Obama Care along with impssible regulations for small business needs to be repealed. It is coming in November.
Sounds like the SEIU was fully involved. One Milwaukee precinct (where of course noted poverty pimp Jesse Jackson had "campaigned") saw 119% of its registered voters vote. Sounds like ACORN is alive and well and doing what it does, cheat and lie, for the democrat liberals. Of course you will not hear about it in the liberally biased media.
Marie MD - but people are still stupid enough to vote for him against their best interest
You obvously do not understand what this was all about. The TAXPAYERS DID vote for their best interests and that was Walker. He is doing what is in THEIR best interest and not the unions best interest which is what the Democrats do because the unions are in their back pocket. The TAXPAYERS footing the bill for these out of control union wages and benefits are finally waking up and they do not like what they see. It is not the taxpayers that are stupid, it is the Democrats that don't get the loud and clear message.
