  •  Just came in from door-to-door canvassing (6+ / 0-)

    in Milwaukee; of the face-to-face contacts I made (approximately 100 people?) all but three said they  had voted and that turn-out was higher than previous recent elections. One person only did not vote for Barrett / Mitchell.  Everyone for recalling walker is pumped.  We ran into a dozen or so other canvassers in the neighborhood we were in and two cars with speakers calling for people to vote Barrett / Mitchell - so there is high enthusiasm; ran into an pre-teen who was disappointed that she had to wait seven more years before she could vote!

    At our personal polling place we estimated that there were twice the number of voters turning out (unfortunately we are in a very, very heavy repub district).

    I am cautiously optimistic with a cloud over my head caused by personal issues which seem to indicate a bad omen - desperately trying to shake it off.
