  •  Walker Recall Vote IMPOSSIBLE (0+ / 0-)

    Using polls to rationalize the Walker win?

    Someone is Lying, Cheating, or Stealing

    The exit polls taken of voters leaving the schools and community halls on June 5 show 51% favored Obama over Romney 44%. All those Obama supporters voted for Walker? Hard to believe?

    So, why would such a high, unlikely, and statistically impossible number of people who favor Obama, vote for Walker? Obama carried Wisconsin by 14 points over McCann in the presidential election, so the exit poll reflects an 7 point slide since then. Yet, the defections of people who voted for Obama in ’08 – that voted for Walker in the recall election are far and away larger than any reasonable rationalization can justify. (Read much more and see the defection from the Obama '08 vote that will convince you of election fraud}

    •  Some Democratic-leaning voters didn't like (0+ / 0-)

      a recall over a merely political disagreement, with no ethics problem.

      The influence of the [executive] has increased, is increasing, and ought to be diminished.

    •  I have family members who probably voted that way (0+ / 0-)

      I hate to burst your bubble, but plenty of people of all political stripes were annoyed by the Wisconsin recall process.  You should really try taking the electorate's pulse before making unsubstantiated claims of fraud, otherwise you sound like a Republican.

    •  Ticket splitting is quite possible (0+ / 0-)

      and happens a lot here in Wisconsin. Differences between presidential and gubernatorial votes are not evidence of fraud except for some very specific circumstances, such as the total vote for governor (meaning all candidates) being more than the total vote for president when the elections are being held on the same day.

      Male, 22, -4.75/-6.92, born and raised TN-05, now WI-02, remorseless supporter of Walker's recall. Pocan for Congress and Baldwin for Senate!
