Paul Ryan's Wisconsin Neighbors Supported His Opponents
By Bob Secter. November 14, 2012 In the closing days of his vice-presidential run, Paul D. Ryan sought to connect with voters in small- and medium-sized towns across Ohio by repeatedly telling them how much their community had in common with his own hometown of Janesville, Wis.
Now, post-election, the Wisconsin congressman is blaming his Republican ticket loss with presidential contender Mitt Romney on a huge turnout of urban voters for President Obama.
One flaw in that analysis may be that election results indicate the Romney-Ryan ticket didnt exactly connect with the voters back in Janesville, either.
A struggling blue-collar manufacturing town of 63,575, Janesville lies on the eastern edge of Rock County, Wis., and unofficial election tabulations from the county clerk there show that only 37% of Ryans hometown neighbors voted for him and his running mate. Meanwhile, Obama and Vice President Joe Biden got 62% of the Janesville vote.
The results were even slightly worse for Ryan from his own polling place at the Hedberg Public Library. Out of 1,428 votes cast there, 65% went for Obama-Biden and just 34% for Romney-Ryan.

Since Obama won over Romney-Ryan among single women with a devastating 68%-30% margin one must assume that there are a lot, quite a lot of single women in Janesville.
Well, if those “struggling blue collar” workers think they’ll get any help from the Marxist trash in the White House, they’re fools.
Those 65% deserve everything that comes their way. Back-stabbing Judases!
This is why National Parks have signs saying, “Do Not Feed The Bears”. We’ve become a nation of garbage dump bears wandering around in a trance looking for handouts. Ryan’s “neighbors” are just that, garbage dump bears.
How do those numbers compare to Obama’s performance in Janesville in 2008 and Ryan’s performance in his congressional races, including this year’s? I mean Romney doubtlessly lost his Massachusetts precinct, does that really prove anything?
Janesville’s always been democrat. It’s union city.
Nixon, Reagan and Bush Jr. were able to connect with blue collar voters. Seems Mitt had problems in this department.
Mitt’s economic vision made more sense to me, but I wonder if all the lying negprop took its toll.
People who think like domestic pets can always be counted on to vote for Democrats.
Wisconsin is a liberal state in a liberal country. It’s not surprising WI went for Obama.
My house cats beg to object to that insulting comparison.
Belmont MA. has always been a hotbed of Barking Moonbats.
Might as well be in the people’s republic of cambridge, Belmont is just a tad bit cheaper.
That explains why Wisconsin wasn’t even close. The blue collar worker that even votes for Paul Ryan rejected Romney/Ryan. Shows why so many of us were anybody but Romney in the primary. He just didn’t play with the critical swing vote. This despite a pretty decent performance down the stretch.
This election just reinforced my views on the wizards of smart in the DC political scene on the right. Incompetent, wrong, out of touch, and failures. They show it every time, without fail. Whoever builds a highly competent team of outsiders is the guy to beat next time. They need to bring their own team of all-stars like Clinton, Bush and Obama.
If Romney/Ryan did not connect, where did all the crowds at the campaign events come from? Vote fraud was the Rats friend.
They’re obviously people, then — not domestic pets. LOL.
BIG LEAGUE VOTER FRAUD!!
Yes, good catch. There used to be some sort of auto plant there. If it is a GM plant that tells the sorry tale.
Even a crowd of 40,000-50,000 people isn’t a very good indication of the election results in a state like Wisconsin where more than 3 million votes are cast.
Could very well be.
That’s fur persons to you.
What a disaster Romney was, he was so bad that everyone is trying to compare his race against Jimmy Carter II, on the verge of the great depression, with the election of 2008, when the republican ticket was running against George W, and a deity, and the first black candidate.
So far the 2012 GOP shoo-in election, is not looking as good as the GOP doomed race of 2008.
Les Aspin held that district with Janesville, Kenosha, Racine, and some Milwaukee burbs for 20 years. It's not Janesville that helps Paul Ryan. He just lives there. It's parts of Waukesha County which is one of the biggest Republican strongholds in the nation.
‘Those 65% deserve everything that comes their way....’
That’s exactly how I feel about everyone who voted to re-elect Mr. Obama. Unfortunately, the rest of us will also pay a heavy price.
Sorry but its not massive voter fraud, it was an old fashioned electoral college butt kicking. It seems the folks who only believed Rasmussen and Gallop have attached themselves to Voter Fraud to explain why their guy lost. Folks need to stop only listening to other folks who only agree with them..if it was Voter fraud why isn't R/R challenging every state..they aren't because they know they lost simple as that...
Something definitely does not add up!
Maybe a few more years of struggling for those braindead “struggling blue-collar” workers is just what they need to have them get the message. .....But I doubt it.
Wi voter Id laws were stop by a county judge !
Chicago voter was implemented on a national scale .
Obama had office on every city strategizing how to best steal the votes in key state precincts in S Fl , Cleveland and N Va .
It was the Daley machine voter fraud machine nation wide.
They had the S Fl counties violate early voting laws and kept the precincts open after the laws require them to be closed !
This was a massive voter fraud scam on a Hugo Chavez level !
12 duplicate posts....whatever you are doing....stop. If you are posting via a tablet....stop.
It was early voting fraud central .
This was carefully planned for four years by the Daley machine were these
Con artists came from .
Muchelle’s Daddy was a Daley precinct thug .
In broward dade palm beach counties the dem
Election heads never stopped early voting in violation of state law and no one stopped them .
Now Broward just found votes not counted in a warehouse !
It’ was a massive set up .
In Port St Lucie there was 143% turn out in the dem districts !
That is fraud !
iPhone was stuck
Obviously these single women chose free birth control over jobs... I suppose they are also going to choose food-stamps, housing assitance and other forms of welfare since there is nothing Obama will do to fix the economic downturn his policies are creating so there will be no increase in the job opportunities...unless they are interested in the worlds oldest occupation !!
New iPhone is the awful
Janesville voted against Scott Walker during the Recall, and so did Racine and Kenosha.
It may be interesting to see what happens as the unions begin to collapse and die across the midwest as the manufacturing jobs move down south or overseas. You have a very white population there that has bucked the trend and continued to vote Rat.
As the dollar continues to fall apart, we shall see if the trends continue. The Minnesotas, Wisconsins, and Michigans of the world may begin to lean Republican again simply due to the failing influence of the unions.
It certainly hasn’t happened yet.
“-—the Wisconsin congressman is blaming his Republican ticket loss with presidential contender Mitt Romney on a huge turnout of urban voters -—”
Note to Romney/Ryan: Here are a small sampling of the REAL reasons that y’all lost:
Never questioned Obamas place of birth;
Never questioned Obamas reasons for sealing his personal documents and school records;
Never Campaigned from the end of the Primary until people started early voting;
Never allowed The Father of the Tea Party to be involved in y’alls GOP-Elite Campaign;
Y’all listened to y’alls sorry Harvard top campaign advisers;
Ignored Moderator Bob Scheiffer when he delivered the election to Romney on a silver platter with his question to him about Benghazi as the first question in the third debate;
Romney, as the Father of Socialist Romneycare ran against the Father of Communist Obamacare.
Y’all NEVER ONCE went for the coup de grace;
Every time that y’all got ahead, y’all relaxed and changed course;
Y’all kept y’alls advisors that had done a perfect job of designing a campaign to “LOSE AT ALL COSTS.”
Y’all are just another pair of loser RINOs.
Don’t run in 2016 unless you understand all of the above, as we damn sure won’t forget ANY of y’alls RINO blunders!
DUH! Im surprised that y’all received as many votes as y’all did.
BTW, the only good thing that came out of y’alls Primary and General Campaigns was HOW NOT TO RUN A CAMPAIGN!
Here’s the real reason why Romney lost and failed to connect: We played by THEIR rules
