Suddenly the big bucks are rolling into Wisconsin and, as exected, the out-of-state money speaks loudly on radio and TV! While four Dems hammer at Walker, he is fighting back against Falk and Barrett. According to Daily Kos, Walker has moved ahead by 5 percent! Whoa Nelly! Barrett has unfavorables of 45 and favorable of 41. Ed Schultz asked John Nichols last night how he could explain what is happening. John's response was not to worry at this point and, while I agree, the news is disturbing. It seems that until the Dems settle on a candidate it will be hard to catch Walker if his millions open a big gap before the primary.
Bernie Sanders announced that of all new money last year, 93 percent of it went to the top one percent! Unbelievable? Nope--very believable.
The right wing has made Walker into a national figure. The only way he can lose is if turnout is high.

I lie for polls - doesn't everyone? Just like voting in the Republican primary. If I am going to have to put up with GOP telephone interruptions from morning 'til night, I'm going to pretend that I am a Walker fan and let the media report that he is gaining ground. Then I will vote sensibly.

Ed, remember back in 1992 when there was an ad war between the two heavyweights and the little-know under-financed candidate came out of nowhere to win? RGA and Koch Brothers could be paving the way for a repeat if they slam Barrett and Falk enough over the next few weeks.
