WI judge sets July 12 for ALL the recalls, over Dem objections

Speaking of recall elections, do Wisconsin Democrats—or any Democrats—recall all those elections (quite a few by now) that Republicans “won” at the 11th hour, by tiny margins, against all odds? Do Wisconsin Democrats recall the recent “re-election” of Judge David Prosser, who abruptly “won” just after various progressive pundits had hailed Kloppenburg’s victory as a referendum on Scott Walker’s push against the unions?

I pose these questions to suggest that these recall elections, now slated for July 12, are very likely not to turn out as Wisconsin’s Democrats expect—but not because they’ll really be in the minority that day. The Repubs don’t intend to lose those contests, and have everything they need to “win” without majority support.

So what those Democrats had better do ASAP is organize some proper exit polls, and be prepared to keep on fighting even if it looks like they’ve been “beaten.”
