    I sure hope that once the primary is over, that the candidates do the big rally around the winner thing.  Almost every candidate gets a little bump when the primary is over.

    As is always the case, poll likely voters and Dems lose or squeak by, poll registered voters and Dems win a close one, poll everyone and Dems win pretty easily.  Dem supporters just don't get off their butts and vote.  It's got to be different this time.

      Ground Hog Day.  Except that so many Democrats have had to work SO HARD to get a replay.

      Barrett lost by very little to Walker in 2010.  You'd think, given what Walker has done since, it wouldn't be that tough to make up and exceed the difference.

      Frankly, I'm gob smacked and so disappointed that my home state has come to this.  That they say Walker still has the enthusiasm on his side?  How the hell can this be?

      This is not the place I grew up in, but then, you can never go home again according to Thomas Harding, and I guess he was right.  

      More to the point, it seems Wisconsin has become the nadir of the right/left fight.  The right is just aware as the left how much is riding on this recall.  So I need to be careful about the conclusions I draw.

      Finally, pollwatcher, you said it all.  "Democrat simply must get off their butts and vote.  It's got to be different this time"

      From your keyboard to God's ears.
