This is the last of these for a while:
I live in NE Wisconsin, Packer country, and I wouldn’t count us out
yet. Favre has his message going out on the phones, so does Arnold, I
received both of those calls yesterday. Plus I’ve received two
additional calls, and countless invitations to Bush events. I’ve
received TONS of mail from the RNC and BC04. Tommy Thompson’s message
is also going out, I received that call last week. My parents received
a personal call last night. I’ve received three emails to offer me a
drive to poll to vote for Bush. Bush signs are ALL OVER THE PLACE up
here in NE Wisconsin. They FAR outnumber Kerry signs at least 4 to 1.
Compare that to last time, which I received a call from Thompson and
maybe Bush, and that’s ALL I heard about it. There were very few yard
signs, and not nearly the intensity coming from the Bush camp. This
year is much improved over 2000.
I’ll concede this, the pro-Kerry, anti-Bush ads are EVERYWHERE.
Literally, every commercial break has a VERY negative ad against Bush.
I honestly think it could backfire. I’ve seen the negative DNC
anti-Bush ads at least 100 times a piece. Contrast that with the
positive Bush ads running here, and it may help Bush in the end. I
think the negativity in the Kerry camp is SO OVER the top, that it
doesn’t appeal to us. I’m partisan though, so I may be wrong.
