Scott Walker: Election Vote Totals

Scott Walker won his recall race going away.  I though it would be much closer than it actually was, but am happy to be wrong in this case.  However, I do find it interesting that that vote total for Barrett was as close to the signature total in the recall petition:

Total Signatures:  900,938

Total Barrett Votes: 1,162,785

Mr. Barrett didn’t get that many more votes for governor than he did signatures for the recall.

Weird.

  1. Well the Walker opponents may have been more passionate, though apparently less numerous than the Walker supporters.

      I think another explanation might be that folks in Wisconsin didn’t like the idea of a recall. That process is supposed to be used for ethic lapses, corruption or other non-legislative cases. For example, there are folks who would vote AGAINST Walker in his re-election bid but voted FOR him in his recall.

  2. A pol’s term is like a contract, you need a specific event of default to terminate before the normal span of years.

      Yup. And that is why Wisconsin kept him.

      By the way, this is why I don’t think that the Badger State is in play this fall. It’s still very blue.
