Decision day in Wisconsin: Stand with Governor Walker and rally for Rebecca
— Rick Wilson (@TheRickWilson) June 5, 2012
Wisconsin heads to the polls today and all eyes are on this important election. Polls just opened minutes ago and Wisconsinites are already lining up to vote.
Very long line at my polling place just after 7am, but everyone is in good spirits. #wirecall

#WIRecall It will be great if the predictions of 65% voter turnout are achieved or exceeded- regardless of outcome, this would be fantastic

Guy in line tells person he is on phone with that he is voting and that person should be to. Great energy. Get out and vote. #wirecall

President Obama is busily distancing himself from Governor Walker’s challenger.

President Obama cares about his reelection. So he avoids #wirecall & "Tweets" his support for Tom Barrett. Can't vote for this man again.

In none of the 3 fundraising speeches he gave last night did Pres. Obama mention today's recall vote in Wisconsin.
— Mark Knoller (@markknoller) June 5, 2012
Obama avoided becoming overly involved in #WIRECALL to avoid media's endless attempts to make this a referendum on his presidency

Our aching sides! Tell that to Debbie Wasserman Schultz who said that the Wisconsin election is a “dry run” for President Obama.
But conservatives are standing strong with Governor Walker and Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch.

Maybe after this recall is over Scott Walker can teach The Lightbringer how to stop whining & deal w/ an inherited mess. #WIRecall

Polling shows Governor Walker with a resounding lead, which has the Left in a preemptive tizzy. Some go with the old “nothing to see here, just pretend it isn’t happening.”
Wisconsin labor battle used to be huge story for MSNBC. Tonight, eve of Walker recall, 7pm 'Hardball' leads with Obama/jobs.

Planned Parenthood joins in the lies.
Our time to vote Governor Walker out and stop his attacks on women's health is finally here! Polls are now open until 8pm #wirecall
— Planned Parenthood (@PPAWI) June 5, 2012
Others are already starting with the whining and attempts to set false narratives as to why Governor Walker may win. It was announced yesterday that the Department of Justice would be in Milwaukee today to “monitor” voting.
Polls open at 7am. You DON'T need Photo ID. You CAN register today. If you signed the recall, you DO still need to vote. Plz Share #WIrecall

Another line of expected spin:
Been doing this for weeks. RT @GPollowitz: Prediction of the Left's new talking pts: Walker only won bc GOP bought the election
— Nathan Wurtzel (@NathanWurtzel) June 5, 2012
And, it begins!
— Sam Seaborn (@SamSeaborn) June 5, 2012
Remarkable that Walker has outspent Barrett by better than eight-to-one yet today's race is still filled with suspense.
— David Axelrod (@davidaxelrod) June 5, 2012
More spinning and finger-pointing from the Left!
— Dan Spencer (@cayankee) June 5, 2012
From The Hill:
In addition to spinning the expected defeat, Democrats and labor pointed fingers of blame. Some union officials and activists partly blamed President Obama for refusing to help. Others complained that the recall was always an uphill battle.
Walker has led in all recent independent polls, including a survey from the Democratic-affiliated Public Policy Polling released Monday that had him up 50 percent to 47 over Barrett. The race has been highly emotional and hard-fought and has garnered national attention for months.
Aren’t they just precious?
Wisconsin, all eyes are on you today. We are counting on you to let Big Labor know that their type of business is unwanted. Their strong-arm, bullying tactics no longer work. Americans, however, want to work. Like Lt. Gov. Kleefisch said “Wisconsin is open for business.” Help prove her right!
Both Wisconsin and Scott Walker are trending this morning. Twitchy will monitor this important election and update as news and results roll in.
