There's no stopping Scott Walker and his talk radio-influenced penchant for making demonstrably false statements, is there?
This Sunday PolitiFact again finds Walker fibbing - - the rating service has vetted 38 Walker statements and 26 have been rated "Mostly False, "False," or "Pants on Fire." And without a "True" rating since May 8th - - seven months ago. That's better than 2:1 with "false" in there somewhere, and is pushing 70%.
Is that how a state should be managed?
Here's the latest finding. What's wrong with this guy> Where are those Eagle Scout values?
The St. Norbert College/Wisconsin Public Radio poll has "been wrong in almost every election."Scott Walker on Wednesday, November 16th, 2011 in a television interview
Wis. Gov. Scott Walker says the St. Norbert College poll has been repeatedly wrong
Walker dismissed a St. Norbert/WPR poll that showed 58 percent of state residents favored a recall as being consistently wrong. As evidence, the GOP criticized the pollsters for not quizzing likely voters. And they said the poll got the 2010 election wrong, but offered no evidence that the poll has been "consistently wrong."His laughable, pathological record has been noted on Huffington Post, and under this say-it-all-headline by columnist Dave Zweifel in the Capital Times:
In it’s most recent poll, St. Norbert wasn’t trying to predict an election outcome. It was looking at whether the general public favored a recall. Secondly, GOP spokesman Sparks and Walker were wrong about the poll when it came to the 2010 results. The poll got that race right. And there’s no evidence that the poll has been consistently wrong in the past.
We rate Walker’s claim False.
The trend has been obvious for weeks:
