  •  It'll be interesting to see how well they called (0+ / 0-)

    the turnout for the primary. Looks like so far they are right, but maybe higher turnout in the areas that aren't in yet? We'll see.

    •  So far, it looks like turnout (3+ / 0-)

      is on pace to be ~300K statewide. That's about 20% of the turnout in 2011 and 10% of the turnout in last year's Presidential election, so we have room to grow. While I doubt we'll get to either 2011 or 2012 numbers, I'd imagine that over half the people who vote in April won't have voted today.

      •  waukesha (6+ / 0-)

        Waukesha County is at 33% of turnout as 2011 Supreme Court general election- Washington is at 28%, and Ozaukee is at 29%- these strong red counties always vote- Dane and Milwaukee very low- will have to turn out big-time in April-  Good news is that I believe Fallone is the better candidate and Rogensack was only candidate on tv- hard to compare to Prosser in 2011 because no one was on the air before the primary.  Fallone has room to grow.

        •  Fallone better get to the airwaves... (1+ / 0-)

            phone banking the primary.  Been doing it for 2 weeks.

            I'm hoping Fallone gets on the airwaves quick to let people know that nearly all Roggensacks money is from out of state and that she's using Republican strategists and the Republican robocall operation for her "independent" campaign.

            There already is class warfare in America. Unfortunately, the rich are winning.
