Dem Warning: Obama Could Lose Wisconsin October 28, 2012
MILWAUKEE The Democratic mayor of Denver said Sunday that President Obama could lose the battleground state of Wisconsin if the incumbents supporters fail to increase early voter turnout in the Badger State.
If the election was held today, President Barack Obama would lose the state of Wisconsin because where his base is, we have not turned out the vote early," Mayor Michael Hancock told a Democratic rally. "The suburbs and rural parts of Wisconsin the Republican base are voting. President Obamas base has yet to go vote.
"We've got to get our people to go vote," Hancock said.
Early voting, which began in Wisconsin on Oct. 22, is a central component of Obamas strategy to win the state. The president won Wisconsin four years ago by 14 percentage points, but recent polls show the race with Republican Mitt Romney tightening, and that is fueling Republican enthusiasm about their chances of seizing the state.
In a later interview with The Washington Examiner, Hancock said he was confident Obama would emerge from Wisconsin victorious.
Theres a great deal of enthusiasm, Hancock said. We expect clearly that President Obama will win the state of Wisconsin.
But he also said that its vital for Obamas base to make it to the polls in Wisconsin.
This is a very close race, and the point were trying to make is make sure the base shows up, turns out and begins to vote early, Hancock said. I saw where the votes were rolling in, and I said weve got to make sure that where the presidents base is, they get out and vote.

Well, Mr. Mayor, the early voting in Colorado isn’t going your way either.
BO is getting his butt beat!
The Dems’ emphasis on early voting is suspicious.
Read a couple of posts from people to voted early (1) in Florida, (1) in Ohio. They said that when they voted Romney, Obama’s name came up on the vote. They each spoke to the person in charge and their votes were corrected. I just wonder how many people didn’t pay attention and their votes went to Obama. One of the voters conjectured that it’s possible that this happens when a vote is straight Republican. Something for everyone to think about.
For Democrats to even suggest losing Wisconsin is a huge turn in the narrative.
I remember in 2008 how everyone on this site thought it would be impossible for Obama to win Indiana....but he did.
Why are they pushing EARLY voting so hard? Because that is the best way to cheat?
Republican governors in many battleground states must move forward to end early voting except for the military, sick, and disabled. Its too late for 2012 but not for 2016.
