  •  Actually this is more debatable (0+ / 0-)

    Most people aren't in unions.   They are bystanders to the impact and  importance of them.

    That they are going to base their voting on union busting is unlikely to swing an election.

    Take, Wisconsin where we have put up an active fight to our anti worker governor.  

    In the latest poll he beats a recall 48-47.   And that's with Feingold as his opponent.   And they haven't even begun to fight with the tens of millions of unaccounted for corporate campaign dollars to swing over the ignorant, independent vote.

    After all this guy Walker has done to damage so many important institutions and values in this state, and all the publicity about these moves...he still has an even chance of surviving.

      you refer to was Walker Vs. Feingold,that's actually pretty good news. Feingold is a progressive democrat for the most part, and went down hard last election---not least because democrat turnout sucked.

      If the polls have it this close between the two, I'd say Wisconsin Democrats are on the right side of the enthusiasm gap this time. If half that state is willing to dump Walker for a progressive now, imagine what it might be like after Walker and his cabal have crammed through the list of nasty pre recall legislation they have in mind.
