“The slime pit that is Chicago will always negate the way the rest of the state votes.”

My Nlaws live in Decatur, so I drive down quite often. Last drive a radio station I was listening to had the main topic for over an hour of separating from Chicago.

Something along the lines of making Chicago it’s own state similar to D.C. - it was an interesting topic.

I do know that all down staters are basically beat and know that there’s nothing they can do to overcome Chicago. It’s really unfortunate.

Go, WI! Praying for your success all the way.

If you state there are LONGGGGGGGG lines, please tell us if it is a republican or liberal vicinities. I'm very nervous for you all, but especially what this VOTE really represents for our country! GOD HELP US!

According to my source on the ground in Milwaukee who is well-connected, young, dynamic, and popular: This is not even going to be close. We should see a 60/40 split favoring Walker.

I love the sentiment but I’m sorry, I worked until a month ago in the grocery industry in the Quad Cities. This is an ENORMOUS welfare state. Every 4th person is on the government dole. I saw it every day and after 4 years couldn’t take it anymore. There is NO WAY that anything will change with SO MANY relying on the government of IL to take care of them.

The only thing that might work is a total economic collapse in the state whereby a major transformation happens. But the cesspool that is Chicago has been ruling the roost since the days of Capone.

Look what has to happen. You have to get rid of every Dem scum like Madigan, Durbin, Emmanuel, Quinn,,,, the list goes on.

I dunno, just seems like a hopeless proposition. I think it’s gonna get way worse before it ever gets better and I have 3 young sons to think about.

I’m out of here. Sometimes this summer. The dust of this hellhole will be on my heels.

"Here's a hint from Charlie Sykes about the potentially massive GOP turnout: Charles Sykes ‏@SykesCharlie De Pere, WI @ 10:15 for the primary (no wait at all) I was 114 @ 10:30 today (after a 40 minute wait) I was 1645

That could be massive turnout OR 1000 union votes cast before the polls opened.

Yep and it happens every election. I do my duty and go vote in every election knowing it will do no good. But still, I do. In my area Dems run unopposed for a lot of offices. No shit! It’s ridiculous.

But if you take a look at the county by county map after nearly every election you see that most of the state is red save Chicago and burbs and E. St. Louis.

Notice anything in common with those two areas????

If Walker loses all it will ultimately represent is that Dems are experts at cheating.

Well, could be, but those voter numbers are sequential and start with #1 in line. DePere is GOP country to boot, so union fraud would be tough to pull off there.

I'm no expert on WI politics but lots of reading and interpolation of data have me feeling confident that Walker wins, and wins easily - I think a 53/46 margin is not unlikely.

Lots of pro & con blab all over the landscape on the Freeper site. If there any Freeper who can demograph the state and tell us what turnout is in both Republican and Democrat strongholds throughout the state, please do so. That will give us folks a much better picture of what is really happening across the state. There are so many wild posts, no one can make heads or tails out of the blabber. Am also sure, many trolls posting on this site. Answer to Trolls, every Wisconsin Walker supporter, ignore anything and everything said, and.....get out there and vote for Scott Walker, etc. NOW!!!

With all due respect: "Well, could be, but those voter numbers are sequential and ARE SUPPOSED TO start with #1 in line.

But, of course, I hope you are right and Walker takes this in a landslide.

Yeah - I forgot about St. Clair County (Metro East St. Louis) also went for Quinn.

Did you know Durbin is from Springfield and was congressman from Central Ill before getting elected to the Senate. As a congressman he supported a constitutional amendment to nullify Roe v. Wade. Once elected to the Senate he turned on the people who got him there and basically said - Screw you - I can be #2 in the Senate.

So there you have it - another politician selling his soul for personal gain. Surprise!!!

Voted at 9:30 this am in Pell. Lake. It’s a small place near Lake Geneva. Lots of turn out for us. As we were returning home it was odd to see a large tour bus rolling down one of our little streets. Hmmmm. Could be for Lake Geneva though as it is a tourist trap. Strange to see anyhow, in little Pellet Lake.

Even though voter ID is the law, we were not allowed to show ID. In fact, the poll worker was yelling at anyone who tried to show their ID.

“...tight end Jermichael Finley and wide receiver Tori Gurley tweeted their support Monday for the recall effort...”

Having seen Finley drop more than a fair share of balls in the last season, I think he ought to concentrate on his pass-catching skills instead of politics.

To paraphrase Laura Ingraham, “Just Shut Up and Catch the Ball”.
