Wisconsin's large Counties Took a Beating Under Walker in 2011
Today's Bureau of Labor Statistics Report on the employment in the 323 largest counties in the United States shows only Dane County ranked slightly above the middle. Dane County was ranked 156 of 323, which would put it at the 51st percentile. This means that half of the large counties in the US did worse than Dane County. In other words Dane County's performance was average. The Democrats in Dane County wanted more than that and voted against Scott (250,000 jobs, trust me) Walker by a margin of 69.1% for Barrett to 30.4% for Walker. Even in the county that is the location of one of the twenty best research universities in the world, 30% of the people were OK with 'average”. Dane County got it right.
