Scott Walker has a strong grass roots organization already in place and Paul Ryan is the native son.

Wisconsin should be competitive.

This is one state where the Romney campaign or the Superpacs should invest in to force Obama to compete.

Maintaining ballot integrity is key. The Wisconsin Democrats have won several statewide races by thin margins in recent memory by means of vote fraud.

“The home of progressivism” is about to abandon the idealogy and they write that Mitt is the one having problems.

Sadly I don’t know if WI is winnable, considering that Cook County will go overwhelmingly for Obama.

People often consider Madison as “Wisconsin” thus overlooking that there are millions of us not residing in Madison.

IF, repeat IF a fair election is held and voter fraud is somewhat “controlled”, the Romney/Ryan ticket will prevail. The hard part of “Controlled” will be to keep the Chicago bused in voters away. With all the Chicago teachers on strike, it would be a little extra income for them to drive up to Wisconsin and vote. “Remember good and faithful Demodummies, vote early and vote often”.........
