Wisconsin governor's job in the balance

Referendum called in US state to decide on fate of governor after weeks of protests against his budget cuts.

    People in the US state of Wisconsin are voting on whether or not to recall the state's governor.

    Scott Walker, the Republican state governor, angered many voters with hefty budget cuts and now risks his term cut short by two years.

    But if Walker survives, it will give his party a huge boost before the presidential elections later in the year.
