National Dems not feeling it in Wisconsin

According to this report from Greg Sargent of the Washington Post, Wisconsin Democrats are furious with the national party — and the Democratic National Committee in particular — for refusing their request for a major investment in the battle to recall Gov. Scott Walker. According to Sargent’s source, the party has asked the DNC for $500,000 to help with its massive field operation, but the money has not been forthcoming.

The source told Sargent: “Considering that Scott Walker has already spent $30 million and we’re even in the polls, this is a winnable race.” He added: “We can get outspent two to one or five to one. We can’t get spent 20 to one.”

Unfortunately, for the Dems, however, Walker’s opponent is not “even in the polls.” A new poll by We Ask America, which surveyed 1,200 likely voters, shows Walker leading Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett by 52-43.

Given these numbers, and with the election only three weeks away, it’s understandable if the national Dems are backing away from this contest.
