The right is trying to discourage us by pushing that Marquette poll saying that Barrett is 5 point down from Walker.  I teach statistics and I can tell you that all polling is meaningless at this point. There are too many hangups from the Barrett supporters to get a meaningful sample. What's really going on is that what we're doing is too new to know what's going to happen. All bets are off.

We are in uncharted territory. We're on the cutting edge of unprecedented political change.  This has the DNC running scared. The Koch Brothers running scared. ALEC running scared. This level of political involvement by normal middle Americans is everything they don't want to see.  They are trying to drag us back to their narrative of dismal expectations. Forget it.

They foresaw none of this. Not Scott Walker being recalled. Not Scott Fitzgerald being recalled. Not Dale Schultz standing strong and blocking the mine. None of it. They saw none of it. They don't know what's gonna happen June 5th.

    Steve Jobs changed 3 industries in one fell swoop. We're that good. We're changing the political landscape in the same way.  We're still the heart and soul of the resistance to corporate America taking everything away.
   Also, it's important to tell people when we're out canvassing, when we're knocking on doors, that they are not important to Scott Walker, but they are important to us. People need to feel respected and included. It's a powerful driver. Let's use.  
   Everything is up in the air. Let's make history together.
