Wisconsin US Senate Election: Obama Travels to Wisconsin and Republican Ron Johnson Increases Lead over Democrat Russ Feingold 54% to 42%


WOW, what is going on in Wisconsin and in the Democrat party?

Maybe Democrat incumbent US Senator Russ Feingold should have taken his initial advice and stayed far away from Obama when President Barack Obama visited Wisconsin this past week. It would appear that the ”toxic” President once again spread his reverse Midas touch on Russ Feingold. With such toxicity and unfavorable job approval numbers, it makes one scratch their head as to how Obama could be ahead of Hillary Clinton 52% to 37% in a hypothetical 2012 Democrat nomination for President. However, the fact that such conversations are being discussed should crate concern for Democrats and Obama. A disasterous 2010 midterm and more bad economic numbers could create even worse job approval numbers for Obama. Some say Hillary will hold out until 2016.

With Vice President Biden too old to run for president after Obama, that leaves Clinton the most prominent administration official available in 2016. Assuming she continues to serve Obama without much controversy, she can help diminish her problems with his loyal supporters. She can leave the administration at some point to write a book and plan out a 2016 run.

However, back to the present. No sooner did Obama visit Wisconsin and act in a manner that was less than Presidential, the latest Rasmussen poll shows Republican challenger Ron Johnson takes a 12% lead over Democrat incumbent Russ Feingold in the race for the US Senate. How out of touch are Democrats with the voters? Speaker Pelosi stated that they wanted to seean aggressive Obama on the campaign trail, yet that hardly plays to independents. It made Obama look like a partisan and one of the main reason why the very independents who voted him into office, have now abaondoned him.

Republican Ron Johnson now leads incumbent Democrat Russ Feingold by 12 points in Wisconsin’s race for the U.S. Senate.

The latest Rasmussen Reports statewide telephone survey of Likely Voters shows Johnson picking up 54% support, while Feingold, who is running for his fourth term in the Senate, gets 42% of the vote with leaners included. Two percent (2%) prefer some other candidate, and two percent (2%) more are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Maybe this is the reason why Republican Ron Johnson now leads Feingold 54% to 42%, Feingold actually ran a political ad touting Obamacare.  The ad has individuals stating to Johnson,”Hands off our healthcare.” Really? Seeing that it is the majority, including independents who see Democrats as interfering with “We the Peoples” health care … no wonder Feingold is behind in the polls.

Feingold and his staff must be kicking themself for showing up to the Obama rally. The only Democrats for the most part that are doing well in the polls are ones that are pretending they are not Democrat and have never heard of Obama, Pelosi or Reid.

Rasmussen has moved the Wisconsin US Senate race to leans Republican.

      Tell Obama he’s needed in WV to campaign for Manchin. LOL! (Obama has the worst approval #’s in WV this side of the Mississippi River.) Raese is ahead in a close Senate race, but he could use a boost to make certain he gets past the “close” election, recount, etc., so that the Democrats can’t steal it from him.

      LOL. The author of the above apparently has no problem pushing aside ALL his alledged “values” just so a republican wins. Is it all BS when the author of the above claims he’s a “victims advocate”?
      All child victim advocates in Wisconsin were up in arms over Johnson and his testimony….Red of Scared Monkeys….not so much.

      Below is what Ron Johnson said in testimony before the Wisconsin state legislature in opposition to the bipartisan Wisconsin Child Victims Act. Yes Ron Johnson OPPOSED THE BIPARTISAN WISCONSIN CHILD VICTIMS ACT (and that’s who Scared Monkeys wants as a senator. hahaha).

      JOHNSON: I think it is extremely important to consider the economic havoc and the other victims [the Wisconsin Child Victims Act] would likely create. [...] I believe it is a valid question to ask whether the employer of a perpetrator should also be severely damaged, or possibly destroyed, in our legitimate desire for justice. [...] It would also send a chilling signal to avoid this civic minded activity in the future. [...] I have no doubt trial lawyers would benefit, I’m not so sure the actual victims would.

      For Scared Monkeys, and Ron Johnson, it’s not about the victims, it’s about the “economic havoc”. Pathetic.
