Jenny Beth Martin, co-founder of Tea Party Patriots, goes door-to-door canvassing neighbourhoods days before a recall election for Republican Gov. Scott Walker in Watertown, Wisconsin, May 25, 2012. The so-called badger state sees itself as fiercely independent, with a history of both progressivism and free-market conservatism that has always been driven by a politically engaged population. The June 5 vote to determine whether Walker stays in office reflects progressive populist traditions dating back to at least the turn of the last century, Wisconsin activists say.
