    Do you understand how exit polls work?

    They weight the results. If they ask 100 people a question, they take the results of those 100 people and try to decide how closely the 100 match the millions that voted. If the 100 people are treated as 50 democrats and 50 republicans, the result of the exit poll data would be wildly different then if they felt the 100 people were 55 democrats and 45 republicans.

    We know that the exit polls were way off regarding the outcome of the governor’s race. We know this to be a hard fact. However they weighed the results for the governor’s race was flawed heavily in the favor of democrats.

    Can the same be true for how they handled the Romney vs. Obama data? Yes. We don’t know if this is the case, but logically speaking, it makes all exit poll data highly suspect.

    Are you suggesting Walker doesn't have a political agenda?

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Walker's win was a huge kick in the teeth to the Left, no doubt about it. The unions will have to regroup.

    Largely true. And there are a lot of divisions in that state, both within the unions and outside of them. Walker can smile a bit, but he would be unwise to do a Bush and declare he has a mandate.

    Don't follow what you are saying. That only the GOP doesn't work through a political agenda but the Dems do?

    It is a huge kick in the teeth of unions for sure. In the state where much of the unions began.

    Actually it was far more intended for 'you'. In all the discussions I see on Wisconsin I have yet to see people discuss what is right for the people...what their budget situation was, what the reality is. I see defense of one side, defense of the other...wouldnt it be refreshing if people were actually assessing the fiscal reality in the state and not the 'sides'.

    That would be nice. And when Walker got in and the unions made overture's there was a small possibility that such could happen. Few, on any side, completely forsake their interests, so compromise means acknowledging this and seeking a middle ground.

    I agree that policy discussion would be more beneficial but what do you honestly expect at election time other than horse-race results as the discussion?
