The Wisconsin recall elections are underway today as the nation watches closely to gage how voters are feeling about the two major political parties. If four Democrats win today, they can retake control of the state Senate; which appears to be possible, according to a poll released yesterday by Public Policy Polling and the Daily Kos. Mike Tate, chairman of the Democratic Party of Wisconsin, was optimistic about the party's chances on the eve of the election.
The recall elections come as a result of Gov. Scott Walker's controversial budget that got rid of most collective bargaining rights for union workers. The recall election has been rife with questionable behavior by Republicans by way of the use of "fake Democrats" in the primary and the deadline "typo" made by Koch brothers-funded Americans for Prosperity on absentee ballots.
