I Traveled To The Crucial Swing State Of Wisconsin This Weekend, And Here's Who I Think Will Win...

"SNIP.....................................................

President Barack Obama is going to win the key battleground state of Wisconsin in two weeks.

During the three days I spent in the Milwaukee, Green Bay and Rock County areas, Democrats expressed optimism caution, but clear optimism that Obama will win the state. In my estimate, they're right.

Despite increased speculation that Mitt Romney could win Wisconsin, the state and its 10 electoral votes have been steadily trending Obama's way for quite some time now, and Romney hasn't led a poll there since August.

That fact, plus Wisconsin's electoral history it hasn't voted for a Republican since 1984 has led Republicans to doubt Romney's chances of winning the state.

1. Exit polls from Walker recall showed Obama +7. WI is a pretty good bet for us. nt

5. Exactly. Putting Eddy Munster on the ticket isn't going to help them that much.

8. Looks like a

major tidal wave of change is happening. Very disappointed in what went down with the Walker recall thing. Most folks in Wisconsin were just plain scared by all of the Koch money last time. Now they really are pissed and they will take it out on the Rethugs. Wisconsin is really two different states,the North and Northwest is really low income,I know grew up there and it's run by a few rich thugs,and the South and South Eastern always had a mega manufacturing base thus higher wage bases and more wealth. All the younger people are sounding like the sixties,and,my friends means the Rethugs are toast. We kicked the liven beejbeus out off them in the 60 and 64 election. The hate mongering old white people were doing the same crap then as now. Always watch what the next new voter crop it into and take care to nurture it.

9. I wish this Cheesehead were as optimistic. The right here is motivated and will turn out ...

... in numbers. Add to that the fact they're cheating on a massive scale and it's not hard to see why I'm concerned Wisconsin will end up in the RR column.

We need to keep working. Nothing is in the bag.

11. Hope for the best, prepare for the worst. And that means being prepared for a big R turnout ....

.... and massive cheating, just like always.

I think there's a chance this will be another stolen election if we don't all remain vigilant. Thanks for what you do!!!

12. Surely they wouldn't be stupid enough to rig WI with us up so much? Would

they. Say Obama is leading by 6-7 before election day. Isn't that enough to have everyone, including the press, say NO WAY is this possible?

I say get the UN in up there.

What do you mean "they're cheating on a massive scale" ?

17. I would include under "cheating on a massive scale" the following:

Secret gerrymandering, hiding public records regarding same

Voter purges

Misinformation campaigns
... election date wrong on mailings
... voter intimidation billboards

Using electronic voting machines where prohibited (touchscreens being used for non-disabled voters)

Kathy Nickolas still counting our votes

Threats and intimidation, especially targeted at recall signers and petitioners



Note: this is not an all-inclusive list.

13. You are right to be worried


Here at the Free Press we have an article due out in a few days that will detail statistical anomalies that strongly suggest election tampering during the Walker Recall
