One senior republican tells cnn that it was just *in the last 2 days* that members started getting voter calls urging them to support the bill.
(Until then most members were getting constituent calls 90 to 1 urging them to vote AGAINST the bill.)
So just over the weekend they started hearing "from the guy who can't get a loan for his tractor because of the credit crunch".
Republican leaders say – they expect members will get many more outraged calls in support of the bill and when members come back on Thurs they will be in a different frame of mind.
They still think the bill needs to change a bit (give members a fig leaf) but the wall st drop on its own could do the trick.
