"They" say the race between Jim Sullivan and Leah Vukmir will be tight. Same with Russ Feingold and Ron Johnson. Scott Walker vs. Tom Barrett seems to be more predictible, after all, The Journal Sentinel endorsed Walker. (Chalk that up to Everybody loves a winner --they don't want to be on the losing side--or they were trying to show they were not always in the tank for the Democrat.)
But have you noticed that Sullivan, Feingold, and Barrett signs are not at all of the usual pro-Democrat households in your area? I have. These would be homes that in the past have always shown their political alliance at election time.
There are a few houses in my neighborhood that are always for the Democrat. This election cycle, all but one have a bare yard.
True, yard signs don't win elections. But when staunch supporters don't place one, I think that is telling us something.
The residnets may just quietly cast their vote on the D side of the ticket anyway, or maybe they will sit this one out. But one thing that is plain to see, they aren't advertising for their party.
Time will tell. Thankfully we don't have to wait too long for the answer.
