“Thanks for the update”
I also was trying to convey that Dane Co. is its’ own little political ecosystem. Not trying to say that there is a “silent majority” in Dane by any means.
But I do know there are a lot more people of a conservative mind than past elections results show. Many don’t vote because they have that permanent minority mindset thing going on - things are changing.
Dems had 72.8% of the vote in Dane
Rep had 25.82% pretty overwhelming right?
Dems had 67.96%
Reps had 30.97%
This year I am looking for 35% for Reps - and am not putting 40% out of bounds with this high turnout. People are just sprung - that’s the only way I can explain it - we’ll see how the numbers turn out later tonight.
Also, I’m sure the inverse is not true in WOW (Washington, Ozaukee, Waukesha Counties) Higher turnout there indicates larger Rep votes - there just isn’t any more people of a Lib mindset in those areas that don’t vote already.
Hope this makes sense - I should probably eat some lunch - so nervous I forgot to eat (getting lightheaded) :-)
Being from Wisconsin and knowing the lay of the land very well, I agree with and understand your post perfectly.
Now, get a sandwich! It will help if you should happen to imbibe some celebratory spirits later!
Thanks for the great analysis, acw. And try not to celebrate our impending victory too much until you get that sandwich in you, if you know what I mean.
Thank you for your in-depth analysis; it is encouraging.
