111. One other point - I can't say how it is

In Wisconsin, but in every single area I have voted in here in California, the citizens who serve as election judges tend to be over the hill seniors, of a Republican bent. These are the men and women who are inside the polling places on election day.

In Sausalito, Calif. back in early 2000's, one elderly man who was an election judge sauntered around the polling place, shouting at the top of his lungs that the initiative on the ballot to recall the local DA was a stupid initiative. Repeated this again and again. And I'll repeat it: this was inside the polling place.

This is clearly illegal according to election laws - there is to be NO Campaigning inside the polling place. Yet the County, when informed of this man's behavior, said, "Well, that's just X's personality. We sure can't get rid of him. We don't have enough people who offer to serve as election judges inside the polling places." So he is probably still there.

i have a friend who registered as a "R" - just to see how differently she would be treated from her husband, who remained registered as a Democrat. Sure enough, when she enters the polling place, she is given the royal treatment - escorted to a selection of booths, offered a pencil with warmth and affection. She is addressed by her name the whole time.

Her husband saunters in a few minutes later, and is ignored. If he needs a pencil, he can count on it being tossed toward him - too bad if it hits the floor and he has to bend over to pick it up.

If the Dems want to start winning, they need to start seeing to it that the warm bodies inside these places are younger and more "D" than "R"

Remember, in the end, an election is not at all about who votes - it is about who counts the votes!
