Americans favor unions over Govs Gone Wild

This just in: A Gallup Poll shows more Americans support labor unions than governors in states trying to strip workers of collective bargaining rights.

Almost half, 48 percent, of Americans agree with workers and their unions. Only 39 percent agree with the governors.

This is just another in a long string of polls showing the public clearly favors maintaining collective bargaining rights for workers.

As expected, the poll shows union members are overwhelmingly against efforts by the Governors Gone Wild to take away their rights. This includes police officers and firefighters. They've traditionally voted Republican, but that's about to change. Politico reports:
Already, rank-and-file police officers and firefighters who long viewed themselves as separate from the rest of the movement are carrying picket signs, signing petitions and standing side-by-side with their labor brethren.
The governors are certainly not winning any popularity contests. Here are their abysmal numbers:
In Wisconsin, 55 percent disapprove of Koch whore Gov. Scott Walker;
In Florida, 55 percent disapprove of Gov. Rick Scott;
In Michigan, 50 percent disapprove of Gov. Rick Snyder; and
In Ohio, 46 percent disapprove of corporate stooge Gov. John Kasich.
