Because Wisconsin is our next door neighbor, those of us in Minnesota are watching the Wisconsin recall election of Scott Walker with much anticipation. I know personally I am hoping Gov. Walker will prevail (and there are a lot of good reasons he should) but I thought on the morning of the election I would make a few predictions about the outcome:
- Scott Walker will win decisively.
- The White House will pretend that the election doesn’t matter, that it’s not a shot across the bow before November, that it has nothing to do with feelings about Obama and they weren’t that invested in the outcome anyway. So there.
- The radical left in Wisconsin will continue to protest in Wisconsin after their failed election, frustrated that democracy continues to prevail in their state.
- Wisconsin will go for Romney in November.
