    Wisconsin Voters would Shift to Democrat in new Election

    Wisconsin voters would shift to Democrat in new election: poll | Reuters

    It look like the crusade of Governor Walker of Wisconsin to deny public employees their rights is starting to backfire on him and puts his own career at risk.

    (Reuters) - Wisconsin voters would narrowly favor Governor Scott Walker's Democratic opponent if the November, 2010 election were repeated, according to partial poll results released on Monday.

    Walker has stirred national debate and the largest demonstrations in Wisconsin since the Vietnam War with his proposal to strip public sector unions of most collective bargaining rights.

    Walker won the November 2, 2010 election 52 to 46 percent for Democrat Tom Barrett, with the remainder of the vote to minor candidates.

    Public Policy Polling of Raleigh, North Carolina said a new poll showed if the election were replayed now, the result would be almost exactly flipped, with Democrat Tom Barrett getting 52 percent and Walker 45 percent, with four percent not sure.

    The shift in voter sentiment away from Walker was attributed to households with at least one union member, the polling group said. More details of the poll will be released on Tuesday.
    A poll last week from Gallup showed a significant majority of Americans did NOT want the Walker approach used in their state and they would NOT support such an effort to strip public employees of rights.

    The tide is turning.

    I hope you're wrong.
