Waterloo for the Public Employee Unions

The Public Employee Unions seem to have mis-judged the mood of the country.  As reported in the Bee and other papers a Clarus Poll suggests that the fight that public employee unions are waging in Wisconsin may not be winning them friends.   In response to the question - "Do you think government employees should be represented by labor unions that bargain for higher pay, benefits and pensions... or do you think government employees should not be represented by labor unions?"
Even with the margin of error (+/- 3%) the Wisconsin Governor seems to have the upper hand.  Even in the Northeast public employee unions are not popular.  The ratios in the rest of the country are 2:1 against.
