In tonight’s debate, Sen. Russ Feingold continued to defend his vote for the health-care reform bill. “I want what I voted for, I want this bill,” he said, even though all polling shows a majority of Wisconsin voters favor repealing Obamacare, as Feingold’s opponent Ron Johnson has pledged to do if elected.
Feingold claimed tonight — as he has before — that most Wisconsin voters supported the health-care bill before it’s passage. Again, several polls taken at the time appear to dispell that claim. I guess it depends on your definition of “support.” Check out this video taken during one of Sen. Feingold’s “listening sessions” on health-care reform:
I guess by those standards, it’s fair to say that most Wisconsin voters “support” Sen. Feingold’s reelction.

As I write here at NRO, several months ago Feingold and his supporters might have laughed off a constituent’s suggestion that the incumbent Democrat “get his resume ready” for a post-November job hunt. Who’s laughing now?
