The other consideration is how much voter fraud are the demoRats going to perpetrate.

Working class people who are tired of paying so many taxes to support state government, might just want to KEEP Walker.

The Governor ONLY has control over state GOVERNMENT employees who are paid from money collected FROM the people and businesses in Wisconsin.

No one else need worry about their jobs. Public sector jobs are NOT effected by the Governor.

To think otherwise is to feed into the sensationalism being spouted by unionists.

Right, that's why he turned a 3billion dollar deficit to a surplus in a year. Your'e Employment rate is at 6.2%. Demacrats are the laughing stock of the World. Shows the desperation-you have brought in the Union thugs to intimidate voters and brought Eric Holder in to sue, or yell racist.

Let the people cast their votes and pray they can live with the outcome.

Greece is a fine example of voting IN someone who was against AUSTERITY.

Greece is now on the verge of collapse and possibly LEAVING the EU. And still the people are not satisfied.

Hopefully the people of Wisconsin will make the choice that will STRENGTHEN prospects for a balanced government, rather than putting it back on a crippling path of overspending.

The American people will defeat Obama and his cronies in Wisconsin leading to the Obama’s supporter Elites breakdown. Defeating the communist dictator Obama and his foreign agenda of destroying America for the next generations step after step will save America from going bankrupted and losing its constitution thus becoming banana republic of the criminals and poor of the world. Will the naive and ignorant Americans who drink the cool aid that the Obama's media keep feeding them will open their eyes and realize that they are almost over the cliff and stop the Obama's madness? Big victory in Wisconsin will be major step in defeating Obama and his liberal parasites that live on our back while attempting to pull the rug beneath our legs and trash the American dream and way of life of 236 years.

Big turnout, by all accounts, and this obviously favors Dems in a blue state. Polling places are jammed, looking like a Presidential race:

http://www.dailykos.com/story/2012/06/05/1097...

No surprise that Walker, with big GOP money behind him, has outspent Barrett 7-or-8-to-1...

http://www.wisdc.org/pro12con.php

Already there are allegations that reTHUGlicans are pulling dirty tricks to try to get Dem voters to stay home...

http://elections.wispolitics.com/2012/06/dems...

..not to mention lying about what Dems are doing..

Here's hoping that Barrett PUNISHES Walker, and the people of Wisconsin drive this anti-worker, anti-citizen, anti-Wisconsin governor and his henchmen from power!

I'm curious, does your financial comparison include money spent by unions? I followed the link to your website. I was not surprised to discover that it's a liberal campaign site. Typical
