Republican Support Collapsing In Wisconsin Clinton Leads Walker 52-40

Republican Support Collapsing In Wisconsin As Hillary Clinton Leads Scott Walker 52-40


Scott Walker

A Marquette University Law School poll released on April 16, 2015 is full of bad news for Wisconsin Republicans. The poll finds that in a head to head presidential contest, Democrat Hillary Clinton would soundly defeat Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker 52-40 percent, in the Badger state.

Furthermore, the poll also finds that Tea Party Republican Ron Johnson is in grave danger of losing his Senate seat in 2016. If Democratic former Senator Russ Feingold seeks a rematch against Johnson, Feingold appears poised to avenge his 2010 loss. Feingold is crushing Johnson 54-38 in that hypothetical race.

Walker’s inability to govern his state effectively has damaged the Republican brand in Wisconsin. Not only has Walker crippled his own chances in the state, but his poor performance as Governor may also drag down Senator Ron Johnson in 2016.

53 percent of Wisconsin voters say the state is headed in the wrong direction, with just 43 percent saying Wisconsin is on the right track. With Republicans in charge of state government, those numbers illustrate why Walker and Johnson are struggling in the polls.

By a 50-44 margin, Wisconsin voters also disapprove of the controversial “Right to work” law that the state recently passed.

Wisconsin Republicans still love Scott Walker, so he would have no difficulty in the GOP primary. He leads all other GOP candidates comfortably. However, Democrats and Independents have soured on Walker to the point where he is a liability in a general election contest against Hillary Clinton.

Interestingly, Walker fares worse in his home state than Kentucky Senator Rand Paul or former Florida Governor Jeb Bush. Clinton outperforms Paul 49-41, and she is ahead of Bush 49-38. Both those races are closer than the Clinton versus Walker match-up, where Hillary has a 52-40 lead.

The November election is still well over a year away, so Walker and Johnson’s fortunes could potentially rebound, depending upon how events unfold between now and then. However, it is clear that, at this point in time, Wisconsin voters have soured on Governor Walker and the Republican Party.

If that trend continues, and Walker somehow still manages to secure the Republican nomination, he could be headed for a double-digit defeat in his home state. Should that happen, he would also almost certainly drag Tea Party Senator Ron Johnson down with him.
Thanks from LongWinded

This is happening to the teabaggers all over the nation. Seems instead of going further right, the teabaggers went off the cliff. Apparently not many are willing to follow.

They can't possibly be so delusional as to have believed they had popular support. The only other answer is they are so arrogant, that they thought they could just power their way through, and everybody else would just capitulate. If that's the case then they must be stopped by any means necessary, as they are a clear and present danger to the entire nation. Especially the younger generations that are struggling worse than any previous generation in modern times.

I'm truly concerned with the amount of depression, addiction and suicides that will follow in conservative circles. All that money, and all that effort for nothing. It must be a real source of frustration for you.

Are you making another election prediction?

From the poll:

Quote:
In this poll, Republicans make up 24 percent of the registered voter sample with Democrats at 30 percent and independents at 40 percent.
Seems like a rather skewed poll. And wasn't Walker elected three times in five years?

Two blue splotches in the far western part of the state and the far eastern part of the state. That blue splotch in the east is called the St. Louis metro area, a bit over 2.9 million people.
That blue splotch in the west is the Kansas City metro area, 2.34 million people. For some perspective the entire population of Missouri is barely 6 million people.
Now, I admit I am talking about metro areas and not cities. At least two counties in Illinois are considered part od the St. Louis metro area, Madison and St. Clair. And Kansas City Kansas is considered to be part of the Kansas City metro area. But I'm sure you get my point.

A farm animal could read a map better than you, or the election results.
