    I think you may be right about the underestimation. The Northwest Side neighborhoods where the more well-off working class people live, especially those who are city workers are natural allies of the teachers. I got  smiles and words of encouragement from cops when I walked around in my red CTU solidarity tee-shirt. On the picket lines, cops would drive past, hit the sirens for a few seconds and then smile indulgently.
