Did big money win the day? Yes, but it's more complicated than that.  People revolted against yet another recall, or so it seems.  Recall exhaustion? That's what the exit polls are saying.  As Jamie Bouie writes (posted by Greg Sargent in WaPo), "On Wisconsin, Conventional Wisdom is Mostly Wrong".  According to exit polls, Walker won 17 percent of Obama supporters in the state, and overall, last night’s electorate favored the president over Mitt Romney by a significant margin, 52 [...]
