Elected with money, brutal attack ads done by RW astroturf groups, complete failure of state media to report honestly about him, saturated RW media and a pretense of being a moderate and an agenda and promise of "jobs, jobs, jobs", Ron Johnson went to Washington DC.  And did nothing, but antagonize anyone who came to see him with his famous first line"  "Don't ask me for anything".  He isn't even liked by his fellow Senators.

He thinks re-election will be accomplished with the same money avalanche and tactics, but the chickens are coming home to roost in a just released Marquette poll (trends conservative).

For Republican Sen. Ron Johnson: 30% favorable and 25% unfavorable. But 44% said they could not provide an opinion.

For Democratic Sen. Tammy Baldwin: 39% favorable and 36% unfavorable. And despite running in November against GOP candidate Tommy Thompson, 25% of those queried said they did not have an opinion of her.

30% favorable in a pretty equally divided state?  That's big time trouble which says that even Republicans don't like this guy.

More results:

Gov. Scott Walker has a 50% approval rating;  disapproval rating is 44%.

Paul Ryan has a 45% favorability rating;  disapproval rating is 37%

RoJo has a HUGE problem if he thinks that being a bozo at Senate hearings, admitting he hasn't done his homework (attending briefings), and generally being a dick are going to induce voters to run to the polls to render their support no matter how many hours he spends in friendly interviews with local RW radio hosts in the state.  

Like Walker, he ignores our generally Republican friendly media, but makes himself available to RW radio.  He hasn't held any town hall meetings either nor does he send out a newsletter.  His website is like a vacant lot with his last Twitter offering on the page wishing folks a Happy Hannukkah (over 3 months ago).  He has no accomplishments.

He built that.

I can't wait to make him a 1 term Senator.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
