    In 2010, Scott Walker promised to cut spending, reduce the state's deficit, and curtail the power of public-sector unions.

    The people of Wisconsin voted for him in 2010 by a margin of 5.5%.

    Then Walker cut spending, reduced the state's deficit (almost eliminating it), and curtailed the power of the public-sector unions. Democrats screamed, painted Walker as a tyrannical little-guy-hating monster, and staged a recall election. Millions of dollars poured in from out of state as unions and other leftists tried to reverse the results of the 2010 election.

    The people of Wisconsin voted for him in 2012 by a margin of 7.0%.

    Sounds to me as if the people of Wisconsin are telling the Democrat party, "Yes, we really meant it."

    My question now is:

    Can we get those same Democrats to campaign against him when he runs for re-election in 2014?

    I'll be interested to see if the 40 point gap closed legitimately of via shenanigans.
    either way its a good day for common sense.

    Now...we can only hope and pray that the national map looks similar to this in November...and Romney turns out to be a REAL conservative.
