    I've been calling for We Are Wisconsin and the people I'm calling are "Union members and their families," although the lists are old and some of the people I call aren't in unions anymore.  Over the weekend we were still (!!) calling people who either haven't been contacted or who haven't stated a preference yet, along with strong supporters, so it's definitely a mixed bag and it could be that the relative proportions of each is making the difference?

    I called for Wirch yesterday.  Of the people I actually talked to who would tell me who they supported, 13 out of 16 supported Wirch and the ones who didn't were polite/neutral in their response.  People were also cheerful about the number of times they'd been called, although that is probably because they haven't been GOTVed as hard as Holperin's district.

    I called for Holperin on Saturday, and also a couple of times previously.  A much larger percentage of union voters are voting for the opposition (12 Holperin to 6 Simac on Saturday, and I think that's better than I got in my earlier calls), a larger group is refusing to tell me who they'll vote for, and the Simac voters are much more confrontational.
