Walker's cruel reign over Madison will continue thanks to Republican mobilization in Milwaukee's backwards suburbs. Free the City of Lakes, let them join us in Illinois!

Well thanks. I've heard the area I live in, from here and many other blogs, called everything from racist to insane. Such manners you D's have!

Alright... seriously... does anyone actually believe that Walker is up by that much? Ahead, sure... but by 7%?

Yup. Which is okay. It's boring to have a poll that is always accurate. Takes the mystery out of it.

There is always some statistical noise in polls. When a new poll comes out with a huge swing from the last poll and nothing happened between the two that would cause a dramatic shift in public opinion, I tend to be skeptical of the new result, the previous result, or both. If it seems too good to be true it probably is.

On the whole, the bulk of the recent Wisconsin polling has shown Walker ahead. Polls have been wrong before and they can again, but I do think Walker will end up winning because the bulk of the polling has shown him ahead. I do not think he will win by 7 but again stranger things have happened.

Personally, I think that Obama's visits have hurt the candidates that been the presumed benefactors of those visits.  It extends to Biden as well.  When he visits, the intended benefactor doesn't receive any benefit from it and it actually hurts the candidate they support.

In NY-24, Dan Maffei went from a 8-point advantage over John Katko to a 10-point deficit in the poll released immediately after Biden's visit.

In the Wisconsin governor's contest, Obama visits to support Mary Burke and immediately afterward the polling shows Walker with a large spike in support.

Earlier, it happened in Maryland.  Obama had gone to lend support to Anthony Brown.  Immediately after the visit, Larry Hogan had a surge in the polls.  Hillary Clinton was just there in support of Brown and I expect that Hogan could see another bounce in the polls.

Guys, just prepare yourselves for a Walker win now. You can be pleasantly surprised if it doesn't happen.

Prepare myself?  I fully expect for it to happen and I'll be ecstatic for it!  Scott Walker has been nothing short of fantastic for Wisconsin.  I wish we had a governor here in New York like him.  Sorry, it isn't your guy, Eraserhead.  It ain't the guy occupying it now either.

Do you think that Cuomo will survive the Moreland Commission scandal?  For the sake of New York's future, I hope not.

Obama effect, he went to Wisconsin early this week to campaign.

Exactly!  Nice to see some Frederic Bastiat too!  Kudos!

Yes.  I wouldn't be surprised if it ends up being by more than 7-points when it's all over.

Love me some Tony Abbott!  Can we trade you Obama for him?  We'll throw in Biden & Hillary for Julie Bishop!

Uh, no. This poll was conducted before Obama campaigned with Burke, so nice try. LOL if you think Hillary Clinton is unpopular in Maryland when she has a 50-42 favorability rating nationally.

Okay.  Whatever you say.  She is linked at the hip to Obama.  That's why her numbers are going down.  It's why Democrats across the board are going down.  Voters are really just beginning to tune into the election results.

Frankly, I think that voters are turned off by the process anymore, which is why there is the late surge across the country for non-Democratic candidates.  Democrats are effectively being tied to Obama.  It doesn't matter if it's Maryland, Wisconsin, Florida or Wyoming.  A vote for a Democrat is a vote for Obama.

It's going to be the same headwind that the Democratic candidate for president faces in 2 years.  Ties to Obama.  It won't matter if it's Elizabeth Warren, Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden or anyone else.  They're going to be tied to eight unmitigated years of disastrous policies.

Logically, if Hillary is at 50-42 nationally, that means she's cracking 60% in Maryland. And it's not "whatever I say". It's factually true that this poll's field dates were before Obama campaigned for Burke.

All hail Marquette and Selzer! They have brass balls for going against the consensus and being correct.

Question for all: Why was this race given more attention than any other race, despite Snyder, Scott, and others ending up winning by a lot less?

Uh, because Scott Walker is a lot more controversial, known and a possible presidential candidate while Rob Snyder and Rick Scott are people only political junkies care about.
