The long awaited recall election against Scott Walker is only days away and both parties are ramping up their efforts. Going into the final week of the race, the polls are all over the place. The new Marquette poll shows Walker with a 7 point lead over Barrett. However, Democrats claim that this poll is skewed to include more right leaning areas of the state. Another poll came out that shows Barrett and Walker dead even at 49-49, with independents breaking heavily for Barrett.

The Barrett supporters have been slow to show, but they have come through in fine fashion. The yard signs in Janesville exploded over Memorial Day weekend and now match or even outnumber the Walker signs.

Both parties are sending in reinforcements for their candidate. Walker campaigned with republican governors Chris Christie of New Jersey and self-proclaimed and demonstrated union busting governor, Nikki Haley.

Many on the left have longed for a visit from Barack Obama and Joe Biden. Neither one has shown, but the party is not going to disappoint. Bill Clinton will be flying into Milwaukee on Friday to Campaign with Barrett. This is a smart move. Clinton ran a strong economy as is one of the most popular politicians in the country. And when he leaves, the right wing can tear him to pieces without having any effect on any elections. If Obama came to the state, the right wing would attack him for infringing on state’s rights.

The race will come down to turn out. Let’s hope that Barrett, Mitchel, Clinton, and you can drive out the voters. I am Eric Brant, host of Civil Discourse, because it is essential for Democracy.
