My RedState post on Sanders voters getting a Wisconsin conservative Supreme Court Justice elected.

Found here. Short version: Enough Sanders voters apparently didn’t bother to vote downticket on Tuesday. And the liberal running for the Wisconsin Supreme Court position paid the price.

    Maybe they don’t like JoAnne Kloppenburg as much as they say they do.

    I .. kinda have to give ’em props.
    They didn’t feel qualified enough to vote in the down-ticket so ..

    This is anecdotal. I live in Wisconsin and personally know several liberals that were excited to vote for Bernie, most of them young people who knew nothing of the downticket races. The ballot lists the judge’s names, not their party affiliation, so one would have to know going in which one was the democrat.

        Since she plans (has stated) that she intends to vote her .. nether regions .. I doubt she’d toggle over to Kasich, but .. he has *disturbingly* high positives ..
