Wisconsin voters are heading to the polls Tuesday to decide whether to recall Gov. Scott Walker and replace him with Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett. 

Walker is comfortably ahead in the polls heading into the election, leading by an average of 6.7 points over the past two-plus weeks of polls, according to Real Clear Politics. We take a look at the implications of a Walker win, what it would mean for organized labor, and what it would mean for Wisconsin's status in the presidential election.
