The Leahs are toast (the home base edition)

The Leahs live at 945 Post Road in Brookfield, Wisconsin, (editorial comment) located in deep-red Waukesha County.  Her approval rating among her base is a mere 1 percentage point higher than her disapproval rating.  Yikes!

According to Merriam Webster, the first known use of 'yikes' occurred in 1941.

Other coinages from the same year:
  • butch
  • campy
  • crapola
  • fellate
  • klatch
  • nutso
  • pinup
  • shipfitter
  • torchy
  • update

Who are these 18 to 29 year olds that Marquette is polling?
