Re: Democrats/Unions Lose Big In Wisconsin

The exit poll showing that Walker got 38 percent of the vote from people living in union households was conducted by Edison Research for ABC News, CBS News, NBC News, CNN, Fox News and the Associated Press.

38% of Voters from Union Households Voted for Walker | CNSNews.com

I'm guessing that number has the Dems more worried then the fact that Walker won the recall.

Re: Democrats/Unions Lose Big In Wisconsin

Lotus pretty much nailed. There have only be three gubernatorial recalls in history. One in 1921, Gray Davis in 2003, and Scott Walker.

Anyway, majority of union members still overwhelmingly support the president. That's not going to change between now and election day.

AGREED

Many union supporters were simply opposed to the recall process. Bad mistake by the Dems. Now the GOP can treat it like a referendum on unions when really it was a critique of the recall process.

So your saying that 38% of them would vote for a man who has made them pay more money into the system just because they did not support the recall.

Nearly 60% of union workers still support Obama.

Majority of Union Members Favor Obama; a Third Back Romney

Well I understand that its the fact that the unions pushed so hard for his recall and still 38% of Union households voted for Walker.

So what they voted for Walker? All union members aren't Democrats you know.

If Walker had lost, what would the story have been about?

Correct I am one, republicain, but there isn't a one worthy I would vote for I honestly feel Obama is better then what the republicans can offer.Unions aren't the down fall of society and they are needed just becuase of idiots like Romney and the fat man in NJ Christy.People like Teachers,Police,Firemen and Nurses ,EMS techs...etc need Unions to be protected from politicians who throw them under the bus as a stop gap to cut cost. Like it or not Unions have help all even though some won't admit it.

I never said I was against unions. People made this a union against Walker issue so by siding with Walker people assume I'm against unions. I do think they have lost their value over the years and that old ass list is proof.
