That was so at odds with recent polling I had to check it out.

Interviewing was conducted by live telephone calls. The margin of error is +/-3.1 percent. Poll questioned asked: "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?"First, it was taken well before the Budget protest started in Wisconsin and second, it is not Wisconsin specific.
The other interesting thing was I could not find out who paid for it.
