Woopsie!! That's Not What They Wanted, Part 2

Not only are the union folks finding that Wisconsin taxpayers do not like their attitude problem.

Now they're finding that the US political landscape has moved. Hard and fast.

Gallup found that 14 states could be considered solidly Democratic in 2010, down from 30 in 2008. Over that time span, vastly more states also gained the label of competitive — with 18 states now holding that designation, up from 10 in 2008

That includes a 9.2% loss of self-identified (D) types in Wisconsin.


In 2010, 31% of Americans identified as Democrats, down five percentage points from just two years ago and tied for the lowest annual average Gallup has measured in the last 22 years.


The Pubbies shouldn't go all googoo over that, though; their number is only one point ABOVE its 10-year low.

But that Gallup calls another poll into question. Capper, a mind-numbed Union robot, posted a "poll result" in my combox from some outfit called "Shop Consulting." I'm not a pollster, but it's interesting that the Shop Consulting poll utilized a mix of 36% (D), 33% (R), and 22% (Ind) in its poll--which Capper claims "supports the unions".

Gallup, as you notice, shows 31% (D), 29% (R), and 38% (Ind).

Yes, this is Wisconsin and Gallup is national. Maybe that accounts for the different mix.

Bad news for Crapper. Not all Democrats support the union and independents tend to fall on the side of against Public Sector unions.
