If you want to find some confirmation of your opinion about the uproar in Wisconsin, there's a poll for you.

Do you support Republican Gov. Scott Walker's move to curtail unions' pay and power? Rasmussen finds 48 percent agree with you and only 38 percent agree with unions.

Support unions right to collective bargaining? USA Today/Gallup Poll finds "61% would oppose a law in their state similar to one being considered in Wisconsin, compared with 33% who would favor such a law."

Support public employees and oppose Walker? A Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research finds most people agree with you.

Note: Democrats believe Rasmussen is bias toward Republicans. Greenberg Quinlan does work for unions and Democrats.

And the USA Today/Gallup Poll? Hard to say, given that the same poll also found this:

• 71% oppose increasing sales, income or other taxes while 27% are in favor that approach.

• 53% oppose reducing pay or benefits for government workers while 44% are in favor.

• 48% opposed reducing or eliminating government programs while 47% were in favor of cuts.
