    are officially depressing.

    How can Wisconsin gather a f***ing million signatures for the recall effort and then we end up behind in every single race?

    Someone needs to figure out what needs to be done, and quickly, in order to turn this around.

        show, well, around noon, I guess, said, "Hey don't worry about the Wisconsin polls so much, they are just polls and the big thing is that Walker isn't pulling away right now." John Nichols seemed to agree, but said that he thought that after the primary was when people would get going.

        I do think the primary has something to do with this. Every time there is a disagreement, I feel a little torn. I am not in a union or really a registered Democrat, so if there is friction, I think, "Come on, get it together, I am putting in all these hours and I am not even effected in the same direct way".  I can see both sides of things. I like Barrett, he is pleasant and seems honest. But, Falk is getting a bad deal with all this "big union" talk and also this "Dane county liberal" label.

          because Falk lost statewide in 2006, which was way too big of a year for Democrats for her have lost.  She's great, but Barrett polls better and Falk just doesn't seem electable enough statewide.

          •  Yes, that is what I keep reading here at Daily Kos (0+ / 0-)

            that Kathleen Falk is not electable statewide. Odd  way to pick a candidate in a primary, if you ask me. No wonder people are turned off to politics.
