Some people probably signed just to get the requestor to leave them alone. Then they just didn't show up to vote because they really don't want Walker recalled or they just don't care at all.
It's hard for false signers to go to the polls. Too bad a Dane county judge has put a stick in the spokes of the WI voter ID rules.
It was a primary. What will matter is the general election. Walker better get his act together and mend as many fences as possible and build all the bridges he can because he has really put himself behind the eight ball. He totally miscalculated the blowback from his high handed methods.
didnt walker recieve more votes alone vs all the democrat challengers?
No, he didnt'.
the only miscalculation was on the part of the union bosses who's candidate lost BADLY.
Walker got 97%of his party's vote.
It was a surprise to see the dem left throw such an imbecilic temper tantrum.
Walker will prevail in the end.
Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, the Dallas Cowboys, sounds familiar.
They let 'em sign petitions, but they don't let 'em vote ! .....
I'm not sure. I never heard of him until he won election. And I paid him no attention until he got to going round and round with the demokrats.
Things haven't gone so hot for Walker since he stepped in the mud with the demokrats. This recall election is going to be a mess. He and his supporters had better take it seriously as the demokrats are going to throw everything including the kitchen sink at him. I don't consider him much of a governor. But, he is a republican. And for that reason alone I'd support him. I think in many ways his ideas are half-baked. But, come November, every state with a republican governor is more likely to support a broad republican ticket and that is best for America. So... hopefully Walker will get his act together. He's going to have to if he really wants to be more than a unfortunate historical oddity.
Well, not if you have a voter ID law.
I wonder how many Chicago voters showed up?
AS of 26 April 2012:
Circuit Judge David Flanagan's injunction against the Voter ID law is still in force.
You're clearly not paying attention.
The election won't be a mess, it will go off like any other, and Walker will win. He won more than all the other candidates combined. The unions handpicked candidate got his butt handed to him. They've already tried the kitchen sink, and we are not impressed.
And there's a good possibility BHO will not carry WI.
Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck and Adolph Hitler didn't show up?
I'm betting that a lot of those signatures are of folks who reside in cemetaries and just couldn't dig themselves out in time to go vote.
How much money have the Koch brothers sent to Walker so far? Is some of that money going to his (Walker) criminal defense fund? What interest do the Koch brothers have in Wisconsin politics? Are the Koch brothers anti-union? If so, is this really a national issue?
This link contains the combined the average number of voters registered by state and the average voter participation for something as major as a presidential election. http://www.thedailybeast.com/articl...states-with-best-and-worst-voter-turnout.html Assuming this data is accurate, it would not be difficult to imagine much lower turn out for other votes. To that you can add the possibility that many that signed the petition might not be eligible to vote. Where petitions are concerned, do they check to make sure only one signature per person is counted? Even if no fraud was involved there are still many ways to explain the discrepancy in the numbers.
