    signatures.

    The biggest problem was that most people weren't home so many volunteers went to public places in just one of the communities. By the end of the weekend:

    • 1/2 the people said they already signed somewhere else.
    • 1/4 of the people signed.
    • 1/4 just scooted past with an excuse.
    • 20% thanked us for standing in the cold.
    • 5% were angry and made some comments in support of Walker and the Republicans.

    My favorite remark: "Shame on you for bringing this petition into the public realm!"
    My reply: "Really? This is freedom of speech and freedom of speech is suppose to be in the public realm!"
