2. I seriously doubt it.
At most, it might be 50-50, and in Wisconsin I would expect the large majority of teachers to vote Democrat. I don't see enough polls that specifically ask teachers their political beliefs, but I would expect some pollsters to run polls in Wisconsin now because of the crisis.
