    She is not well liked, to put it mildly.
    The Teapublicans are frothing at the mouth to vote for her in the primary.

    RIP Will Beinlich 1993-2011 (Just 1 more game, please....)

        I spend a great deal of time every single day reading the comment sections of WI newspapers and various forums.
        I read the Teapublican sites.
        I ask to everyone I run into what they think.

        But yeah.

        Both of your comments are completely ridiculous and devoid of fact.

        I'm not so sure about Barrett losing any Milwaukee votes...when push comes to shove, people will in Milwaukee will vote for him because he's not Walker.... and only the real politicos in the crowd are really paying attention to the Rahm thing.

        However, I completely agree about Falk.  It was a Republican wet dream to have her in the primary.  Every poll I've seen (and I recall seeing three now in the past two months) has Barrett crushing Falk in a primary of democratic voters.  However, I can guarantee you that there will be a strong republican turn out to vote for Falk. They think (rightly or wrongly) that she does not stand a chance That extra push could put her over Barrett in a primary.  

        I can also tell you that there are a bunch of teachers angry about how WEAC threw their support behind her (without the permission of it's members) before the recall was certified and all candidates announced.  It reeks of desperation on her part, and only served to bring in union campaign money.  She knows she couldn't beat Barrett among Dems if Barrett gets in - which is why she was out there preempting any announcement by him next week, and asking him to get behind her candidacy.  Fat chance - he's in before the weekend is out. I just hope republican crossover don't ruin the chances of booting Walker out.

        •  She's not exactly popular here in Dane Co. either (3+ / 0-)

          She does have loyal fans, but most of the people I know are pretty turned off by her. The reasons are varied. County Board members complained that she'd propose a no-tax-increase budget, knowing that the board would change it -- the same thing Walker did in Milwaukee. She dithered on allowing the county's RTA board members to approve a transit tax until it was too late, and the Walker regime killed the RTA altogether. And it's never been clear why she quit in the middle of her term a year ago. Etc.
