Election overload in Wisconsin?


by WDJT Editor

MILWAUKEE- With just six days before the election, for some, a bit of voter fatigue has set in.

"It's just exhausting," Pam Foti said.

Foti explained she's never received more calls from political parties than she has this year.

In the latest Marquette Law School Poll, among registered voters, 49% say they have talked to someone and tried to persuade him or her to vote for a candidate.

Karen Washington said she has been getting e-mails from Democrats and Republicans constantly.

At this point in the election, also from the MU Law School Poll, thirty-three percent say there is someone they’ve stopped talking to about politics. It was 34% at the time of the recall.

"Yeah, I think people are a little tired of the voting situation," Travanti Fowler explained.

Despite the election climate, the poll also states that Wisconsin voters continue to take part in campaigns at relatively high levels.

Fowler was out in downtown Milwaukee Wednesday trying to get people to vote.

"This might be the most important election in a long time," he said.

Levels of participation in campaigns have barely changed from the levels of the June recall election.
