  •  About voters against recalls (0+ / 0-)

    . . . to be clear, that was not true "from the beginning."

    Questioning of the premise of recalls did not emerge as a major (or even much of a minor) issue last year.  I'm in the district that was targeted the most last year, deluged with tv ads and literature and more.  The issue did not come up.

    This issue was the message of many ads this year by Walker, Kochs, et al., this year that blanketed the state.  And, clearly, it worked.  That is, I think that you are wrong in stating that "$40 million didn't change opinions."  Looks like it did on this point.

    What was needed was testing of the impact of Walker's ads for months and months before the recall campaign even (officially) began, as we now can see -- ain't hindsight lovely -- to tailor Dem ads to counter that message.

    But to have a governor win with a campaign that attacks our state constitution on this?  That has to be intriguing.
