57. I made a scatterplot
of Kloppenburg vote shares as a function of Barrett vote shares (vs. Walker), at the level of comparable reporting units (sometimes the reporting units changed ward boundaries, so I had to combine two or more reporting units on one or both sides). It looks sort of like a dolphin. On the right side (high Barrett vote shares), Milwaukee County tends to fall well below the main trend, forming the bottom jaw. I think the benign interpretation is that the Kloppenburg campaign just didn't thoroughly penetrate the most Democratic parts of the county. I'd like to fiddle with it some more.

I've never looked at Doyle/Falk. I'll try to give it a few cycles sometime in the remainder of the weekend. At least I'm bound to learn something about WI politics.

Yeah, I realized you were trying to be middle-of-the-road about TIA, and I respect that. In a way he was like one of the founders of a new religion. It must have been a heck of a ride for people who were following along. I came along in the spring of 2005 (Febble came first -- I really don't remember how that happened) and was, as they say, just like, WTF?
