We see no reason to remove Walker from office. We recommend him in the June 5 recall election.And Barrett's Milwaukee problems don't end there. while Gov. Walker was honoring police officers lost in the line of duty - including some from Milwaukee - Barrett was kissing the rings of union thugs. Barrett's last minute cancellation from the event is not playing very well with Milwaukee cops.
Walker's rematch with Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett was prompted by one issue: Walker's tough stance with the state's public-employee unions. It's inconceivable that the recall election would be occurring absent that. And a disagreement over a single policy is simply not enough to justify a vote against the governor.
A Marquette Law School Poll in January showed that many people in the Badger State agree. In that poll, 72% of Republicans, 44% of independents and 17% of Democrats said recalls should be limited to criminal wrongdoing. Republican state Rep. Robin Vos has proposed tightening the recall mechanism; he should continue to push for that after the election, regardless of who wins.
Walker has had a steady 5-8 point lead in all the polling and I expect him to win handily.
