Wisconsin paves way for Romney landslide

The Sun has concluded Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker's victory in Tuesday's recall election was not predictive of a Barack Obama loss in November based on exit polling which showed many of those who voted for Governor Walker would also vote for President Obama ("The lesson of Wisconsin," June 7).

Really? The Sun conveniently forgot to mention that exit polling on Tuesday night also showed, incorrectly, that it was a virtual tie between Mr. Walker and his opponent, Tom Barrett, but we all know that was not the case at all.

Mr. Walker had a landslide victory over Mr. Barrett, just as Mitt Romney will have over Mr. Obama in November, especially if the economy and unemployment figures remain as dismal then as they do now.
