  •  You seem to be a lot more bullish on Russ... (0+ / 0-)

    Do you have any insider polling that says something different than the public polls?

    Grassroot passion comes and goes - Corporate interest in consistent. Message being that if you want to stay elected then sell-out, it's safer.

    •  Not polling, but (0+ / 0-)

      my knowledge of the state's electorate deriving from my running statewide twice, managing a 3d race, and more recent activity pushing an (ultimately unsuccessful) effort to pass a medical marijuana law.

      I drove through rural southwest Wisconsin Thursday, watching for signs in yards and especially on farms. notable, quite a few sporting Feingold and Kind, but also Walker, the Republican for Governor. I attribute these split tickets to Barrett's history as a gun control proponent. Barrett only wins if Feingold can drag him across the finish line by turning out enough 1st time young voters to make up this deficit.

      (Barrett, by my read, is 3 points behind Feingold with the established voters, so he only wins if Russ wins by 4.)

      Agricultural hemp is "Jobs, Jobs, Jobs."
