Johnson’s Believe It or Not
Wisconsin is traditionally the most Progressive state in America. Progressives win there. Progressives have long won there. Progressives have won there even in years when they lost in much of America. Wisconsin even went in for the La Follette-founded Progressive Party, making it a highly successful third party within the state for about a decade. So I’m just at a loss for words as to | Read More »

Daily Kos checks on Wisconsin
Along with West Virginia, Wisconsin I wanted to see more polling in. Rasmussen Reports has been the lone voice up there polling again and again, showing these key races competitive while the rest of the polling world passed on by. PPP went there for Daily Kos finally, and now we get that critical second opinion on the races to see if they are as competitive | Read More »
Johnson and Walker extend leads in Wisconsin
Daily Kos and Public Policy Polling have hinted on Twitter that they have a new Wisconsin poll coming, which I am glad of because I’ve long wanted to see a second opinion in that state, but I’d like to start the week by hitting a pair of polls I missed while I was in Austin over the weekend: Rasmussen Reports on the Wisconsin Senate race | Read More »
Today in Washington – September 15, 2010
Christine O’Donnell is the buzz in Washington, D.C. today. She joins Ron Johnson and Joe Miller as the most recent additions to the Tea Party push for constitutional conservatism in the Capitol. The House has 23 votes scheduled on the Suspension Calendar. The Senate will continue debate on H.R.5297, the Small Business Jobs bill. Cloture was invoked on the bill thanks to Senator George Voinovich (R-OH) giving Democrats the necessary vote | Read More »

Turns out Ron Johnson (R CAND, WI-SEN) hates those ads, too.
You know: the Typical Candidate Nuclear Family ads that’s Johnson’s lampooning below. Quite effectively, too: (Via Jim Geraghty) I’m starting to understand why Ron Johnson suddenly appeared out of nowhere to give Russ Feingold nervous palpitations. Well, that and the fact that the country is starting to get just a little bit tired of liberal Democrats in positions of authority.
Pick out Russ Feingold’s Union Bosses!
Ed Morrissey at Hot Air is hosting a fun new game: spot the union shills pretending to be normal people in Russ Feingold’s latest misleading campaign ad. So far out of the six ‘plain folks,’ two have been identified as being union corporate suits: That’s Joanne Ricca, AFL-CIO Legislative and Research Director. And this… …is Linda Sadowski, who works in “the office of the President.” | Read More »
Scott Walker would be bad news for Russ Feingold
From Unlikely Voter: Even in a wave election, some members of the losing party stand well in their own local elections. However one key trait of a wave election is that the losing party’s base is so discouraged that they fail to show up. So if this Rasmussen poll is right, I think the nomination of Scott Walker for Governor by Republicans would depress Democrats | Read More »
Ron Johnson is here to stay
From Unlikely Voter: When Ron Johnson showed a lead over Russ Feingold in the Wisconsin Senate polling, it could have been a fluky outlier result. The incumbent Democrat could still have been safe. Rasmussen again has Johnson ahead, though, so that theory is ruled out. The lead is tiny, but looks real.
Ron Johnson Beating Russ Feingold
Okay, so it is within the margin of error and only one point ahead, but it is against Russ Feingold. That’s great. It is 47 to 46 in Ron Johnson’s favor. More troubling for Feingold, the polling shows that 42% of Wisconsin voters strongly disapprove of Obama’s handling of the economy with another 8% somewhat disapproving. Johnson has been steadily going up in the poll | Read More »
Conservatives Rally for Ron Johnson in Wisconsin
A friend of mine pointed out the other day that while I endorsed Ron Johnson for the Senate in Wisconsin several weeks ago on Twitter, I never wrote about it here. Let me remedy that today by pointing out Jim DeMint, the NRSC, and me are all on the same side on this one. DeMint will be making his endorsement today. Later today and this | Read More »
A surprise turn in Wisconsin
Good afternoon, wherever you may be. My apologies for getting today’s poll goodness out late, especially since it’s one I wanted to post yesterday anyway. But it turns out that, per Rasmussen, the Wisconsin Senate may yet be a race after all, despite the fact that many of us probably tuned it out once Tommy Thompson declined to run.
