  •  I didn't take this as criticism. I don't agree (1+ / 0-)

    about the young people not being passionate. Some of them voted in the primary and couldn't vote at home. Some of them probably were in the process of moving home. Some were told they couldn't vote. They were targeted by the voter ID laws and by the timing of the election.

    Many young people were involved.

    However, I think, to me, the Democratic party, the national one, looks ambivalent towards labor and I don't know if that had something to do with this. I am not in  a union, but that is how it looked to me, because Barrett didn't emphasize collective bargaining at all and no support nationally for the Wisdems.

    If it looked that way to me, I assume that some union people felt the same way. I don't know.

    They are saying here that Dems voted for Walker because they didn't want a recall. Could be, but sounds strange to me. I don't know enough people.
