Poll question: Will Obama and other elected Dems leverage WI's stunning results
Edited on Wed Apr-06-11 09:58 PM by MannyGoldstein
Kloppenberg came from 30 points behind to win, all thanks to insane, unabashed, scorched earth Republican attacks against working Americans. Boehner, Cantor, et al may be evil, but they're not stupid - they know that they need to cut the shit or be wiped off the Earth. In short, this is a golden opportunity to make progress for working Americans.

Now that the Dems have the upper hand, how well will they wield it in stopping cuts to heating assistance, WIC, EPA, Medicaid, Medicare and other basic programs?

Poll result (24 votes)
The battlin' Dems will be all over this! Crisis averted! No cuts! (0 votes, 0%)Vote
Not only no cuts, but they'll end tax cuts on the wealthiest (favored by 80% of Americans) (1 votes, 4%)Vote
They'll only give Republicans some of what they want. Fewer people will freeze and starve because of this. (0 votes, 0%)Vote
When the Republicans come to take the jewelry, Dems will remind them that the silverware's valuable too (9 votes, 38%)Vote
They'll do whatever the bankers tell them to do. (13 votes, 54%)Vote
Other (please specify) (1 votes, 4%)Vote

1. Voted 'other'
What happened in Wisconsin is not stunning, it's sad. We should have seen her win by at least ten points, political unknown or not. If her 0013% margin was stunning, then Scott Brown won by a landslide.
