Polls in cheesy state

So the heat is on in the cheese state, but that is not what you hear from media.

Cruz, Trump in dead heat in Wisconsin poll

 By Lisa Hagen —

Republican presidential candidates Ted Cruz and Donald Trump are in a dead heat in Wisconsin just days before the state’s primary, according to a new poll.

A survey released Thursday by the left-leaning Public Policy Polling found that Cruz leads with 38 percent support, with Trump right behind at 37 percent — within the margin of error.

John Kasich follows with 17 percent.

In a head-to-head matchup with Trump, Cruz leads by a wider margin, 49 to 41 percent. The poll found that 51 percent of Kasich voters would support Cruz if the Ohio governor left the race, while 19 percent would move to Trump.

Trump is the only one of the three with a negative favorability. The businessman was seen favorably by 45 percent of voters, and unfavorable by 48 percent.

Kasich was 52 percent favorable and 30 percent unfavorable. Cruz was 50 percent favorably and 36 percent unfavorable.

Cruz and Trump are in a tight race in the Badger State, although polls disagree on how close it is. A Marquette Law School survey released on Wednesday showed the Texas senator leading Trump by 10 points.

The poll was conducted from March 28 to 29 and surveyed 768 likely GOP primary voters. The margin of error was 3.5 percentage points.

Is there a little contamination in Wisconsin? Why are those Fox polls the only ones cited? At this rate, by Tuesday they could have Cruz pushed to 65%.

Yet a PPP survey shows “Trump has most committed voters.” Among Trump supporters, 80% will definitely vote for Trump and of Cruz supporters, 66% say they’ll definitely vote for Cruz.

Scott Walker’s Democratic Challenger Distances Herself From Debbie Wasserman Schultz ‘Backhand’ Comments

Patrick Howley | Daily Caller – 09/04/2014

Scott Walker’s Democratic gubernatorial opponent Mary Burke is backing away from Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s comment that Walker has “given women the back of his hand” and is “grabbing us by the hair.”

Wasserman Schultz said Wednesday in Milwaukee that Republican Wisconsin Gov. Walker assaults women with his policy positions, including opposing a minimum wage hike.

Scott Walker has given women the back of his hand,” Wasserman Schultz said. “I know that is stark. I know that is direct. I know that is reality.

What Republican tea party extremists like Scott Walker are doing is they are grabbing us by the hair and pulling us back. It is not going to happen on our watch.

There she goes again. Now she not only offends normal people but candidates in her own Party. I’m sure she thought about those remarks before she made them.

Sounds to me like DWS declared her own war on men. (or mankind) Maybe the attempt was to cause such a backlash against her statement so she could claim how nasty others are? We’ve reached a new low in politics even for Democrats. Stark, direct, reality?

Polls Exit Stage Left

IF you want to see how bad the left is doing at politics, you don’t have to look further than Wisconsin. In the recall election, their eyes were all on exit polls. At the first sign of anything useful in the numbers, the White House said polls showed voters still chose Obama over Romney. Wow that was a relief for Obama. Those polls showed Walker and Mayor Barrett in a virtual 50-50 tie.

So later when results came in showing the wide margin of victory, around ten percent, the left immediately regurgitated the great news that voters chose Obama over Romney. But wait, the exit polls were off by around *7 percent, around the same margin they favored Obama. Just coincidence. I guess liberals really are that dumb to think they can have everyone believe their talking points. (which are really coming from the WH anyway)
