Are Wisconsin Republicans Wobbling?

Stephen Moore: "Conservatives in Wisconsin are getting nervous that three Republican state senators may defect on the collective-bargaining reform vote. It's still anyone's guess as to when that vote will take place because Democrats remain in exile to prevent the necessary quorum. But Republicans in the Senate hold a 19-14 majority, so GOP Gov. Scott Walker can afford to lose no more than two Republican senators on this pivotal vote."

Walker himself tells the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that his administration "was in talks with Democrats, and he also showed a sign for the first time in the budget crisis that he might be willing to make at least one marginal change to his budget-repair bill."

Possible reason: A new Rasmussen survey finds that 57% of of Wisconsin voters disapprove of Walker's job performance.
