I’ve become way too politically obsessed! Six elections were held today in Wisconsin. I am anxiously awaiting the returns. I don’t know any of the candidates. There are no individual issues involved. It’s really bloodsport now–Republicans versus Democrats after collective bargaining for Wisconsin state employees was eliminated earlier this year.
This is the “Steel Cage Death Match” of the early 2011 election season!
I’m usually checking poll numbers around now. There are few to find.
Most of the polls have either been conducted by partisan groups, have unorthodox methodologies, or both.
After the budget tumult in Washington I’d like to think these tiny elections will signal a change in the electorate’s thinking. Maybe the take-no-prisoners orthodoxy of the most radical political partisans has passed its prime? Maybe not?
I can’t wait to see.
