We were saved in Wisconsin, as if the Recall would have happened during the Presidential election, we would have lost the governorship, state Senate, and likely the State Assembly. We would also have lost two fine congressman in Reid Ribble and Sean Duffy. The unions made the blunder of holding the recall in June, so I am really thankful for them making that tactical error.
So you’re saying that if the recall elections had been held Nov. 6 the Republican losses would have been greater — can you explain your reasoning why? Would it have just been due to turnout, or (as I suspect) are there a large number of straight party-line voters in a Presidential year? Or maybe both?
Trying to understand how Obama and Baldwin won in WI in spite of the consistent pattern of Republican wins since 2008.
