Last night’s wins for the GOP in Virginia and New Jersey has far-reaching impact in the political spectrum across the nation. In a swing state like Wisconsin, Mike Tate the brash, tough-talking Democrat Party Chairman can now officially consider himself warned about what is about to happen in Wisconsin next year.
Virginia which has similar demographics like Wisconsin as a purple state sent a clear message last night to Democrats, enough with big government. The message sent by Virgina voters could be a similar message sent by Wisconsin’s voters next year. Many people in Wisconsin are fed up with backroom dealt state budgets, higher taxes, and a lack of transparency along with a stench of corruption that has ruined a once proud state.
If a young Mike Tate tries to downplay the results in Virginia and New Jersey, he’s got another thing coming. What is coming that a possible double digit victory for Republicans in Virginia last night could be the same verdict for Wisconsin Democrats next year regardless of who is on the top of the ticket for Governor. Exit polls shown last night in both Virginia and New Jersey that the economy and big government are the top two issues voters decided to throw the Democrats out. Also, independents are the key to winning in Wisconsin. Independent voters soundly rejected Democrat candidates in both states. Not having strong independent support would derail either Tom Barrett, Kevin Conroy, or Dick Leinekugel who are considered to be running for Democrat nomination for Governor.
Also, add on that New Jersey which is a hard-blue state that went for Chris Christie by nearly five points and it shows right now that America is not with the Democratic Party. The numbers are not with Wisconsin Democrats as Obama’s approval rating according to SurveyUSA is less than fifty percent and a party in disarray since Barbara Lawton dropping out of the race.
You can downplay all you want Mike Tate, but Mike consider yourself warned as the conservative freight train is about to hit Wisconsin Democrats hard.
