Brookfield WI (3-1 Republican): HIGHEST ABSENTEE TURNOUT IN A GUBERNATORIAL RACE EVER (AND GROWING)

Brookfield's absentee totals have blown 2010's numbers out of the water, at 4530 submitted with 387 not yet returned. While it sounds small, consider this is a quarter of what Milwaukee has reported so far...despite having 1/16th the population. We are talking a turnout four times higher than Tom Barrett's home turf.

Without busing and zazz.

I want downballot Dems to have to spend money in CA. Good GOP polling numbers in a blue state means that they have to run rather than ride coattails.
And the spectacle of them running away from Obama is delicious, too.

The John Doe investigation they are talking about has been going on for 2 years with nothing directly happening with Scott Walker. If they pull this stunt with one day to go before the election, people are going to see it for what it is: another frantic last ditch attempt by the leftists who can't get their way through the election process.
That said, the Dem/Union/Leftie strategy now is this: Pour their efforts into succeeding on the recall of Lt Gov Rebecca Kleefish, and electing Mahlon Mitchell (D- Madison Union Thug) into that position. Then indict Walker and remove him from office that way. Then Mitchell Thug becomes Governor.
This is a guy who never even voted prior to 2010, and led boycott efforts against Walker.

33 Greg,

Do you have any idea on the demographics of Brookfield? There aren't a lot of Democratic votes to be had. In fact, in the 2011 Supreme Court Race, Kloppenburg only got around 3000+ votes in all of Brookfield.

45 And, it's easy to forget that she was once just a little girl:


The Telegraph has put together some great stuff for her jubilee, including this from an opinion piece titled We won the lottery with Elizabeth II

The lottery of destiny meant that, from the age of 11 years and eight months,

she knew that, thanks to flaky Uncle Edward’s abdication, and barring her

parents producing a male heir, she would one day be Queen. According to her

maternal grandmother, Lady Strathmore, every night little Lilibet prayed

fervently for a baby brother.

I tend to believe that the Brookfield votes are going to be, for the vast majority, Walker votes. I have been a Wisconsin voter for almost 40 years and can not recall an election that has brought with it the kind of passion and groundswell of Republican support as this one.

I, like many thousands of like minded voters, watched with disgust, the antics of the left as they occupied our capital a year ago. We were also very dissapointed and disgusted by our cowardly 'fleebag' Democrat State Senators.

This, like the recent Prosser election, is the 'silent majority' having it's say. We will let our votes speak for us and allow Gov. Walker and his fellow Republicans carry on with taking care of the interests of the Wisconsin taxpayer. They had the courage and vision to bring our state to fiscal responsibilty and gave our local officials the tools to continue on this course.

It seems the very least we as Wisconsin tax payers can do is turnout on election day, and I believe with all my heart that this is exactly what will happen.

That's not me. And, Barrett will not beat Walker by 4 pts.

Barrett's final ad is another John Doe hit on Walker, including the latest Journal Sentinel story. Walker didn't really make any final argument or ad, surprisingly.

61 Shipshape, I'm with you brother. We suffered under Diamond Jim for far too long, and now we have our historic Statesman, the Beloved and Honorable Governor Walker (Bless his soul).
CAC, I'd not put too much faith in the early Waukesha voting, Mark Belling was practically begging people to early vote, and he is the shit. Mark Belling says jump, first we say "What for, Belling?", then he informs us of his rationale, then we say, "Holy fuck, Mark... You're right!" and then we jump.
