Early Exit Polls from WI: 2/3 of Voters Dissatisfied, Angry

Early exit polling reveals a widespread sense of frustration among Wisconsin voters. Almost two-thirds said they are dissatisfied or angry with the way the federal government is working. More from the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel:

More than four in ten Wisconsin voters say that compared to two years ago, their financial situation is worse. Only one in ten say it’s better.

In the preliminary Wisconsin exit polls, support and opposition to the Tea Party are running about even. Slightly more people have unfavorable views of the Democratic Party than favorable views. But attitudes toward the Republican Party are quite similar.

The exit polls also ask voters to choose between two classic views of government: that it should do more to solve problems, or that it’s doing too many things better left to businesses and individuals.

More Wisconsin voters are identifying with the second view than the first.  

Would seem to bode well for political outsider, and businessman, Ron Johnson.
