3. I'd like to know more about Waukesha County
Dane Country was really lopsided in favor of Kloppenberg, but that's pretty explainable given the educational hub and State capital. But Waukesha just seemed way too lopsided in Pressners favor. If you look around at other counties, the % were far more closer, in the range of 40/60 ~ 60/40. I'm really curious as to why there seems to be such a heavy Republican population to the exclusion of Democrats. Are they all multi-millionaires there? Is this Pressner's home district? Is it the water? I'd love to see an indepth analysis as to what and why this County is so deep red.
