    Yes - RASMUSSEN.
    The pollster with a proven track record of skewing it's poll results with a pro-right-wing bias.

    Even Rasmussen's poll shows that Wisconsinites are against the Walker power grab.
    Not only that, but the poll found that a by a 15 POINT MARGIN, Wisconsinites side with the Wisconsin ("AWOL") Democrats - and NOT with Walker.

    As I mentioned in another thread, ...
    The New York Times headline mirrors the wording used in a separate Gallup poll conducted March 3-6 in which Americans were asked about a plan (Wisconsin not specified) that would involve “Changing state laws to limit the bargaining power of state employee unions.” The results showed 49% in favor, 45% opposed.

    So the question is, who are you guys going to believe, Rasmussen or Gallup? Remember you have continually belittled Rasmussen when the results did not go your way, so your response will be interesting.

    HAHAHAHA!
    The bottom line is not how some tricky wording is used in asking about collective bargaining.
    The bottom line is that in EVERY poll done by ALL the pollsters - including Rasmussen - the people of Wisconsin, as well as all Americans nationwide - SIDE WITH THE UNIONS AND DISAPPROVE OF WHAT WALKER AND THE REPUBS HAVE DONE.

    Ramming through legislation that a clear majority of Americans disapprove of - ALWAYS has negative electoral consequences.
    It will with this WI power grab too.

    Excellent!

    Then you will be very pleased with the results of the future elections in Wisconsin. A great way to start the RickRick weekend! icon_biggrin.gif




    YES.
    I'm looking forward to seeing Walker get his comeuppance.

    If the Republican Rasmussen poll says that 56% of voters back the unions, in reality, it must be more like 70%. We'll know for sure when we get the results of the 2012 election.

    We may not have to wait that long.
    The recall elections can and probably will be held before the 2012 election.

    Walker and his outrageous power grab in WI have changed the political landscape for the next election.

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/03/10/wisconsin-poll-republican_n_834252.html

    And the Repubs have precious little time to reverse that change of mood before the recall elections.

    Ramming through legislation that a clear majority of Americans disapprove of - ALWAYS has negative electoral consequences....


    jockfever: Statists are opposed to ramming through legislation that a clear majority of Americans disapprove of? Like the failed porkulous bill? ...Tax increases during a recession?...Obamacare?

    Before you claim to speak for the American people perhaps you should check the news, e.g., from Idaho, Michigan, Nevada...


    The Idaho state legislature passed a bill into law Tuesday that will restrict the rights of the state's public school teachers. Yahoo! News reports, via Reuters, that the Idaho law will restrict collective bargaining rights similar to laws that are being pushed in Wisconsin, Michigan and many other states.

    The law will eliminate many union-implemented rights such as teacher tenure and reduces the length of teacher labor contracts to one year. The law also removes seniority as an overriding factor in considering layoffs. The law is the first to be passed among the many states working to push through new collective bargaining rules and to weaken the unions.

    Michigan Will Be Next to Pass Law

    Michigan's state legislature has not faced the attention Wisconsin has but it is about to pass a law that is just as sweeping as the Wisconsin and Idaho laws. Michigan's bill, which is expected to pass next week, will give Michigan emergency financial managers the power to suspend collective bargaining for the next five years.

    The bill was pushed through by Michigan's new Republican Gov. Rick Snyder and has met with surprisingly
    little resistance in such a pro-union state. The last protest in Michigan saw fewer than 300 protesters, one of the smallest protests in any state.

    Nevada Also Wrestles With Curtailing Teacher Union Power

    The Nevada state legislature also was given all but a green light to pass a similar law when it witnessed a minor turnout of more than 100 protesters on Feb. 28. According to the North Lake Tahoe Bonanza, more than 100 protesters visited the state legislature.

    Brian Sandoval, another newly elected Republican governor, has opened discussions on passing similar laws that will curb collective bargaining. Sandoval has not been on the best of terms with the teachers union since they excluded him from consideration for an endorsement in December 2009, according to a story published by the Las Vegas Sun.

    The Dems paid a price at the polls last Nov. for pushing through a HCR bill that wasn't supported by a majority of the country,
    Passing the bill pissed off Repubs who turned out heavily last Nov. to vote a straight Repub ticket.

    The Repubs will pay the same heavy price at the polls next year for pushing through legislation to strip workers of their rights even though some 56-61% of Americans disapprove of the legislation.
    Passing these union-busting pieces of shit legislation has pissed off Dems who will turn out heavily in the next election and vote a straight Dem ticket.
