Today's felony guilty plea by Kelly Rindfleisch, the Deputy Chief of Staff to Scott Walker during his County Executive tenure, has this context:
Already deeply-unpopular, and now with two of his appointed County officers having entered guilty to illegal conduct on the job, Walker literally has no margin for error bad news.
Look at these polling numbers:
The poll showed 51% of likely voters approving of Walker’s job performance and 46% disapproving.
A smaller number -- 48% -- said they would vote for the Republican governor today; a generic, unnamed Democratic opponent would get 47%. Five percent were unsure how they would vote.
