Poll shows most favor recall of Wisconsin governor (58%)
Edited on Wed Nov-16-11 11:30 AM by Ellipsis
As jubilant opponents of Republican Gov. Scott Walker launched their effort to try to recall him from office, a new poll showed he has lost support among his Republican base and a majority of respondents favor recall.

The Wisconsin Public Radio/St. Norbert College Survey was released the same day that Democrats, labor unions and others, angry over his moves to curb union rights, began circulating petitions to get the 540,000 signatures needed to force a recall election next year.

The poll showed that 58 percent of respondents believe Walker should be recalled from office. That compares with 47 percent who said in April that he should be recalled.

The growth in support for a recall came, surprisingly, from Republicans. In the spring, only 7 percent of Republicans supported recalling Walker but that grew to 24 percent in the fall. Support among Democrats held mainly steady at 88 percent in the spring and 92 percent in the fall.

1. I do believe that 540,000 legal signitures will be obtained. Far more than that..

.They will cheat, steal and do anything...illegal...or worse..That is what they do,
now, then, always.

5.  As a Wisconsinite to see 24% of Republicans wanting him recalled is very reassuring.

4. Damn! Time to step up the vote-suppression efforts!
Now, who has the thumb drive and access code? We'll fix this before you can say DRE!

6. DRE's are not used in Wisconsin as a rule... there are some touch screens
but they are only meant for handicapped and a county or two up north. All have thermal printers attached.

Not much in regards to security but some.

The vast, vast majority of precincts are Opscans with real paper ballots.
