Heh: Scott Walker Now Has Higher Wisconsin Approval Than Obama

The bitter defeats for Democrats and the union goons are still resonating as new polls show Governor Scott Walker is now out-polling the failed president in the crucial swing state of Wisconsin. It appears the movement to recall Walker is fading and he now enjoys a 47% approval.
According to Public Policy Polling, 43% approved of Walker's performance in May, 47% approve now.
Now today, also according to PPP, comes news the SCOAMF has plummeted to 44%.
Obama continues to be unpopular in Wisconsin with only 44% of voters approving of him to 51% who disapprove. It's yet another competitive state at the Presidential level where his standing with independents is abysmal- he's at 36/57 with them. In mid-May, shortly after the killing of Osama bin Laden, Obama stood at 52/44 in the state. But he's dropped 15 points on the margin over the subsequent five months.

Mitt Romney has pulled to within 3 points of Obama at 46-43. That's the closest Romney's polled to Obama in PPP's polling of the state all year. In the first half of 2011 Obama had a double digit advantage over Romney, leading by 12 on a May poll and 10 on a March poll. There are 2 things causing Obama's increased difficulty- one is that he's gone from leading by 11 points with independents to trailing by 4 with them. And where he was once getting 9% from Republicans, that's now faded all the way down to 2%.
With Obama below 50% pretty much everywhere, look for the Democrats and their media enablers to furiously push for a third-party candidate. It may be his only hope.

Back in the early Spring, when Trump was making a lot of noise and threatening to run for President, I predicted that while the media was dissing him now, as soon as Obama's problems became huge, they would resurrect interest in him.  Specifically, to goad him into running third party.  And lo and behold, here he is, back on CNN.

I scare myself sometimes.
