Not a misprint. The WPRI post-election poll, widely covered because it showed 52% of Wisconsinites opposed the Milwaukee-Madison line, shows, on table 13, that merely 45% of Wisconsinites have a (very/somewhat) favorable opinion of Scott Walker.
"Scoreboard!" Got it, but Walker's favorable is only 7 points ahead of Jim Doyle's, who, we're told, is toxic. (Ron Johnson has a 42% favorable and Herb Kohl has a 55% favorable.) And recall that Doyle garnered more votes in his 2006 victory than Walker did in 2010.
The poll shows that 78% of Republicans, 18% of Dems and 44% of independents have a favorable opinion of Walker, Meanwhile, 35% have (very/somewhat) unfavorable opinion of Walker (8.1% of Republicans, 51.9% of Democrats, 38.7% of independents).
In the poll 14.2% of respondents (21% of Dems) didn't know/refused to answer.
Note that this poll was taken before the feds, taking Walker at his word, shifted the $810 million for the rail line to other states -- leaving Walker, who suggested it could be shifted to roads, with nothing.
A question and an observation.
What, exactly, has Walker done to win over anyone who doesn't have a favorable opinion since he won the election?
The reason that Charlie Sykes caterwauls about how lefties keep hammering on the train is because he's afraid it's working.
