Tom Barrett Needs To Campaign On Collective Bargaining

May 29, 2012

Milwaukee Story hits the chord CP has been making over and over.

why is it then this recall campaign…. is about anything but collective bargaining? Why has the discussion been about whose job creation numbers are more accurate or about Walker’s legal defense fund and his emails?

But I would argue that unless Barrett makes collective bargaining a focal point of his campaign in the last week before the recall election, he will not win even though he within striking distance according the the most recent polling. Despite raising and spending nearly $25 million as compared to Barrett’s paltry $1 million, and dominating the television for months where Wisconsin elections are usually won, Walker still, even in polls he’s leading in, can’t get over the 50 percent mark.

    The way the campaign is being run seems not to be producing the outcome we both want. Yet I am wrong…

    …hits the chord CP has been making over and over.” Why do I picture a little bulldog puppy tugging and tugging and refusing to let go of a rag toy? A wrong rag toy.

    Tom Barrett has the vote of everyone who’s going to cast his/her vote based on the collective bargaining issue. That, and other issues, have gotten him to 48%. It will take something else to out him over 50%. Now it’s about character and trust; that’s often how the last few percentage of undecideds make up their minds. Who do I feel the best about inb my gut? Who do I trust? Who’s the most likely to think like me and do what I’d do?
