In other news, the Senate is finally expected to hold a vote on the nomination of Loretta Lynch for attorney general next week.

Did it take this long for Republicans to realize that confirming Lynch is the only way they can get rid of their arch nemesis Eric Holder?

Meanwhile, Governor Scott Walker's stock is falling fast in Wisconsin.

Right before the election last fall we found him with a 49/47 approval spread. That's now dropped to 43/52. His numbers with both Democrats and Republicans are pretty much where they were four months ago. But he's seen a large decline with independents- where he was on narrowly positive ground with them before the election at a 48/45 spread, he's now dropped down to 36/57.

Have a majority of voters in Wisconsin finally realized that ruining their state was merely a stepping stone toward a bid for the White House?
