Why Joe Biden went to Wisconsin -- and will be back

President Joe Biden took his first big trip as president this week when he went to Wisconsin for a CNN town hall. The fact that Biden chose to go to Wisconsin shouldn't be lost on anyone. He will likely be going to the state a lot as president.

Arguably, no state tells us more about Biden's or any president's political standing in the last 30 years than Wisconsin. It's also likely to tell us whether his party does well in the 2022 midterms.

If you wanted to know who won the presidency in the last three elections, you needn't look further than the Badger State. It was one of just three states that voted for Biden in 2020, Donald Trump in 2016 and Barack Obama in 2012 (the other two are the key battlegrounds of Michigan and Pennsylvania).

But Wisconsin's importance goes deeper than just this fun tidbit of trivia.
