Goal Thermometer

The Democratic candidates most likely to take on Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker in the upcoming recall election have significantly improved their standing since PPP last surveyed the race in late October. Former Dane County Executive Kathleen Falk, the current favorite for the nomination among the announced candidates, has shown particular improvement by transforming an eight-point deficit into a razor-thin one-point lead.

There is every reason to expect an extremely close race in Wisconsin. As the most polarizing governor in America, Walker is almost as loved by Wisconsin Republicans as he is loathed by Wisconsin Democrats. As such, this is the sort of campaign where factors like grassroots energy and base turnout may well prove more important than swing voter persuasion.

Let's make it happen. Please, give $6 to the Democratic Party of Wisconsin to recall Scott Walker.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
