DePere, Wis.(WHBL-Learfield) - Polling done by St. Norbert College finds Wisconsin residents skeptical about the reasons for Governor Scott Walker's efforts to remove collective-bargaining rights for most public employees. Wisconsin PUblic Radio commissioned the two-week canvass. Governor Walker has said the law on collective bargaining will help balance the state's budget and aid local governments dealing with deep cuts in state funding. Pollsters found 57 percent of those contacted thing the effort was more about reducing the power of unions, while just 31 percent say it's about dealing with budget shortfalls. Another 59 percent say they disapproved of state Senate Democrats leaving the state to delay action on the controversial measure. Four hundred Wisconsin residents were contacted. The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus five percent.
