Poll results for “Why would WI Dem Party downplay the criminal investigation of Scott Walker?”

avert eyes
Visitors to a gorilla exhibit wear special eye averting glasses so they don’t threaten and anger the apes.

I was stunned that the Dems and the Mary Burke campaign decided to avert their gaze from the John Doe investigation recently — so I created a poll to get feedback on the matter.

Below are the full results.

As for the article that just came out in Paul “Vote Mary” Fanlund’s Cap Times  – it suggests that Wisco Dems are broadcasting a “JOBS JOBS JOBS” message to the masses and a more nuanced “JOBS/John Doe” message to liberals.

At least for the moment.

“Job creation is bigger issue..”

This poll was “live” and public from Monday 06/23 at approx. 2PM to Wednesday 06/25 at approx. 7AM. It was shared via the Wisconsin subreddit on reddit, the bluecheddar1 twitter account, facebook, this blog, and at least 1 other Wisconsin blog.


One thought on “Poll results for “Why would WI Dem Party downplay the criminal investigation of Scott Walker?”

  1. I was polled over the phone yesterday by the Kochtopus headquarters in Arlington VA. For “What is the most important issue in the governor’s race for you?” I selected Jobs and the Economy. I suspect that the WI Dems have similar polling that shows Walker to be most vulnerable on that issue, and that is why they are focusing on something other than the criminal scheme. The state news media will lap that story up like spilt milk anyway.
