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.

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.
