But unfortunately for him, and fortunately for the state, they don't appear to be doing too well.
Walker is losing face this week and is continuing his inevitable slide down the polls.
But Kleefisch is actually having a worst time of it. And I don't mean from liberals. Look at what the very conservative Little Miss Sunshine had to say about her and a Facebook/Twitter survey Kleefisch held for herself:
"I can't get no love in the district I live in. People are voting for someone else. Wah wah wah. Oh, I know, I'll make up a poll!"
Mrs. Kleefisch, I implore you. Wisconsin voters are looking for genuine. They are looking for a candidate who doesn't have to fabricate news or support from made-up polls. They are looking for a lieutenant governor candidate who isn't desperate to attach him or herself to the current candidate for governor. What's next, a hello-kitty lunch box from days past that you take to work to save on littering with your brown bag?
Charts of Facebook fans don't equal votes. These other candidates also have "Friends" over fan pages. Brett Davis, for example, has 1,150 "Fans" and 925 personal friends. That's 2075. Sure there's duplicates... but come on, at least do the math. And , were these people even contacted about your poll?
It just seems a little shady to me.
If things keep going so sour for Sykes' people, pretty soon he will have to change his nickname of "the Blogfather" to "the Blog Fodder."
