Manic high or low. That’s how people are going to be feeling after the Wisconsin Recall results come in tomorrow night.
I want to get high.
Turnout in Wisconsin will be everything. The latest PPP poll shows a 3-point margin for Walker, based on a more enthusiastic Republican electorate. (Update: A Warning About PPP’s Wisconsin Poll, “So, PPP changed its methodology at the end of the polling cycle? That itself is a huge no-no, but then it went on to infer that the race is tightening? My goodness!”)
Don’t think the GOTV efforts are one-sided:
Shortly after 5:30 p.m. Sunday, a flashy two-car motorcade pulled up in front of the Destiny Youth Plaza on the northwest side of Milwaukee. A crowd gathered around the first car to greet the Reverend Jesse Jackson, visiting Milwaukee to speak on behalf of Wisconsin workers and to rally voters to unseat Governor Scott Walker in the recall election here Tuesday. If anyone was bothered by the fact that Jackson arrived to speak on behalf of the working class in a Mercedes Benz S550 (starting price of some $100,000) and that his escort vehicle was a Cadillac Escalade ESV (starting at about $75,000), nobody showed it.
If you know someone in Wisconsin, call them. They need to vote.
