Statements about Polls and Public Opinion

"He’s been in office nearly four years now, but 40% of Wisconsinites don't know who (U.S. Sen.) Ron Johnson is."

Under Gov. Scott Walker, "employer confidence now stands at 95 percent," compared to "only 10 percent" at the end of the "Gov. Jim Doyle-Mary Burke administration."  

A majority of Americans "since Harry Truman days" support single-payer health insurance, or "full Medicare for all."  

A poll taken "a few months ago" found "70 percent approval or higher" for the Act 10 collective bargaining law.

"Secular Americans are the fastest-growing religious identification demographic in this country."  

Says the "public option" considered in the health care law backed by U.S. Senate candidate Tammy Baldwin was "wildly unpopular."  

"70 percent of the people who voted" on June 5, 2012, "just didn’t feel comfortable with the recall of the governor," weakening any idea that Wisconsin is "fully behind this Walker agenda."  

The St. Norbert College/Wisconsin Public Radio poll has "been wrong in almost every election."
