So fellow Badgers... Scott Walker's poll numbers are recovering rapidly.

WHAT in the holy hell is happening? He's back up to 41%...still crappy but on a trajectory to be about 55% by his next election. My question is a simple one:

What in the hell has he done to cause this? Surely it can't be his unnanounced invite-only "listening sessions." Or is it just that rank and file Wisconsinites dig his UW-bashing schtick?

1. Koch brothers spread some cash around.

I'm not kidding. I worked on the anti-Walker campaigns (obviously we failed), but the opposition research turned up was remarkable. He is such a total scumbag. No way these numbers are real. Wisconsin is like an alternate universe, everything is the opposite of reality. All of the political results money can buy.

2. Where did those numbers come from?

The Marquette Polls are infamous for repub/Walker bias....

PPP?

Q?

What about 535?

4. It's Marquette, which is pretty accurate right before elections.

Right now, maybe not so much.

6. Marquette tened to be

very conservative. Remember this is Johnson's back yard and he defended these folks in several law suits. In the past,any polling coming out of the U at Madison,was the most accurate. When the MJS questions them,take it to the Bank as the real deal.

Sad to say,Wisconsin does not have a liberal media voice. This is what will happen when people fall asleep at the wheel.

3. Follow the money trai

When these polls are run in conjunction with the Milwaukee Journal,question it,and look for a Koch Brothers tie in. As one who has done phone polling for a so called reliable polling firm years ago,so easy to tweak questions to produce the customers desired results. Nate Silver and 538 are the real deal,and they will tell you it is almost impossible to get it right any more. Internet polling is a joke,and land line polling gets you a segment that is know were reliable because of antiquities. Cell phone polling is not going to happen. Wisconsin seems to have only the Right Wing Media as their source of info. Utopia of the Koch Brothers.

7. I would have guessed the Kochs would cut their losses and stop investing in Walker.

All that cash for him to get to * in the Repub. primary polls...

8. Not going to happen.

Who received more than favorable Tax breaks in Wisconsin. Koch Industries via G.P. Paper Mills in the Appelton Green Bay area as well as EPA exemptions and work arounds and this is in this worth Millions. If your are fimiliar with the Superior area,how about Petcoke Piles on the Docks,notice they are not being removed. Water quality issues on the River south of Superior near the Wrenshaw Renfinery(Flinthill Resourses). How about the tax breaks for John Menard as well as Ashley Industries,millions and major changes in EPA rules and over site. The list goes on and on. This is how the Koch Brothers leave their stain on State wide and Local Governments.
