Craig Gilbert on “Democrats’ big challenge in Tuesday recalls”

….these hugely anticipated recall races have been so hard to handicap. Democrats have certain things going for them in the recall fight: they’ve been intensely mobilized in opposition to Gov. Walker; they benefit from the organizational strength of labor; and Walker’s polling numbers have been weak. But Democrats are running “uphill” in five of the six elections Tuesday, trying to capture districts that are more Republican than the state as a whole in their partisan makeup. In order to overcome that disadvantage, they have to win the turnout battle, carry independents or both.
