I’m a firm believer in optimism and all that. But seriously, if your friend believes Walker will win in Milwaukee County by 60/40, you need to get him to rehab pronto.

Thanks - heading for lunch now.

I’ve lived here combined for 21 years and haven’t left since 1996.

I’ve lived in the Madison area since 2000, used to live in Washington Co. Commuting into Waukesha for work. I would say the good people of Washington Co. could go toe to toe with any conservative couties in the south.

Love this state - my adopted homeland.

robertcostaNRO Walker sources tell me that they're getting "very good" reports from Ozaukee, Washington + Waukesha counties

The difference is, November is a national election. Lot’s of unionista’s were shipped in from out of state. That won’t happen in November.

No, the kids will be back in Madison at UW. Same effect or worse.

Madison City Clerk says turnout might reach 110% of registered voters.

Seriously, how in the hell does that happen?

I swear, the GD Rats anymore remind me of watching the old Untouchables reruns, with their Chicago gangster tactics, Al Capone and Frank Nitti style.

God I hope so.

Meanwhile Mark Belling on WISN here in Milwaukee and the Tea Party pleading for more voters has got me suddenly very ill.

Belling feels that the RP of W dropped the ball on fraud and turnout via the unions and it will now be closer than expected if not a victory for Barrett.

The only thing that tempers this is he quotes Ann Coulter as his source.

I would prefer not to smoke a pacjk tonight waiting out the numbers!!!!

This is an interesting interactive page that shows voter reactions at various points throughout the state. The large majority of inputs are pro-Walker, including at least a couple 2010 anti-Walkers who voted for him this time.

I found the source tweet for the poster who claimed 110% turnout:

http://twitter.com/sgehler/status/210109244568113153
“BREAKING: MSN clerk’s office predicts turnout on pace for 119% (meaning more people will vote than were registered this morning).”

But I think it’s bullstuff. 119% just isn’t doable.

Relax... it's just an opinion. Walker has had offices with volunteers spread throughout the state working GOTV efforts. They've made 4 million contacts since January. And don't forget that amazing turnout for Walker in the symbolic GOP primary a few weeks ago. He received as many votes as all the dems combined.

He'll be fine.

“But I think it’s bullstuff. 119% just isn’t doable.”

It is in a state with Same-Day Registration, NO Voter ID, and a city full of out-of-state students, and bussed-in Union goons/SEIU followers.

George Will: http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/opinion/ct-oped-0605-wisconsin-20120605,0,7358456.story

“A January poll found that even 17 percent of Democrats think recalls are justified only by criminal behavior, not policy differences. If, however, Walker loses, regular Wisconsin elections will henceforth confer only evanescent legitimacy. If he wins, progressives will have inadvertently demonstrated that entrenched privilege can be challenged, and they will have squandered huge sums that cannot finance progressive causes elsewhere. So, for a change, progressives will have served progress.”

Yeah I know, it was just a bit of a gut punch to have all this great news all morning and then the Tea Party and Belling come out pulling Eyores...

The fact that the Left is already screaming about voter suppression is enough to tell me they know they’re in real trouble.

” The Democrats need an overwhelming turnout in Madison to have any hope of winning. Ejecting a GOP poll watcher, who had only been at the precinct for about 20 minutes, raises suspicions that they may just do whatever it takes to get that turnout.”

I would expect nothing less. There are numerous rumors of out of state buses coming in as well.

I don’t doubt the intensity is high, but they managed, what, only high-60-percent in 2004 and 2008? So how are they able to double the effort from getting a chance to defeat The-Ultimate-Evil-President-Bush or getting a chance to vote in their Messiah in a battleground state?

Pray for Wisconsin.

PRay that evil will be countered.

Look, we are not yet at the dinner hour. Folks are getting off work in about an hour in WI, and most people vote between now the when the polls close.

Pray that WI citizens will get out and vote!

Today’s results will affect our nation for decades to come, for either good or ill.

More things are wrought by prayer than this world dreams of, a wise man once said.

Belling & the Tea Party are rightly pressing the panic button. Why? Because we need every pro Walker voter to get out of the house, off their fat or thin cans and get into the voting booth before 8:00 PM this evening and vote for Governor Scott Walker, etc. Why? Because just besting Democrat barrett is not good enough. We most devastate Barrett and the entire Democrat Party. Total political destruction is the objective!!!

Look....folks....we are fighting here, right now for your state of Wisconsin and our very free nation!!! If Governor Walker just squeaks through, and wins by a point or two, that is not sufficient. Walker will win tonight, but...he really needs to win with a massive landslide victory. The reasons are both clear and obvious to folks with half a brain!!! Now...darn it, Walker voters, get out there and vote, right freaking now!!!

More great news....

I made a few calls today to make sure my entire family voted, and I learned that my father who has not voted since JFK, VOTED TODAY!!!

We’ve begged him to vote for decades, but today he finally registered at the poll and voted for Gov. Walker and Lt.Gov. Kleefisch!!!

This is big. My father is a strong old fashioned guy, old school, in his 70’s and tough as nails.

When I called my mother today to see if she voted, and she said even my dad did, I whooped and hollered and thanked God saying “Praise The Lord!”.

I suspect this has happened many many times today. If my dad was moved to register and vote, thousands of other former non-voters did it too.

Woo Hoo!

And everyone keep on praying for us here in WI!!!

MY GOVERNOR’S a JEDI!

Wisconsin for the WIN!

"And to think this uneasy feeling is NOTHING compared to what will happen in November.. Knowing we have a criminal in charge of the DOJ that will work to ENABLE VOTER FRAUD at every turn, with every lawsuit against our States.. Using students as TOOLS for more votes.. Crossing state lines to vote.. Pulling boxes of 'lost ballots' from trunks of cars.. There is NO integrity in our elections anymore.. Why do we accept ANY election where voters are not required to prove who they are and ensure they're eligible to vote and/or they've not voted already?"

Yes. If the Dems can knockoff Walker with their current strategy, the same template will be used in November to reelect Obama. The left and out and out Marxists and America haters have seized power and don't intend to let a popular vote get in their way. The DOJ will be working overtime to enable vote fraud and stop states from using voter ID laws or purging the rolls of the dead and illegal aliens, for instance.

We asked him that at the Thanksgiving table one year.
He said that he voted for JFK and we all know what happened to JFK. Evidently, my father was so devastated by that horrific event, that he never voted again. ( I almost took offense to your question, however, I recognised your FR name and then knew you really just wanted to know).

Keep on praying! The dems are out there doing their fraud in record numbers. We need a big win.

Cheers!!!

My bet was exactly 55-45% Walker about two weeks ago. My bet today is a bit more, 57%-43% Walker. Why? If you have any brains, and...Democrats don’t, you never run a candidate who was bested just two years ago by Walker by five percent. That is pure insanity, based on what Walker has accomplished during his short period in office thus far!!! I hate to say it but.... Mr. Barrett is actually braindead, as far as the real world is concerned. Why do you think that Obama is nowhere in sight? No answer needed, because it is so obvious to anyone with a working brain other labor union goons and Democrats!!!

Now.....Wisconsin voters, haul yourselves down to the polls and vote for Governor Scott Walker, save Wisconsin from failure, get decent jobs, grow your economy, maintain your freedom, your liberty, your opportunity, save the future for your children and grandchildren and all future children to come, beat both Barrett, his union thugs and help us destroy Barack Hussein Obama and the entire Democrat Party come November, 2012!!! DO IT!!!

Not surprised. That is why I said 55 to 45, no higher than 10 points ahead for Walker because of fraud concerns.
