Prosser outperformed other Republican candidates in Waukesha County in recent history
Advertisements [?]
We have all heard that Waukesha County is a solid Republican county and it is true, Republicans tend to win there by large margins in almost every election. Simply saying Waukesha is a heavily Republican county however means nothing, we need to look at exactly how many votes Republicans have received there in recent history if we are going to determine whether Prosser's numbers add up.

I checked out election results going back to 2000, during Presidential years I looked at the results for the Presidential election and non-presidential years I looked at the results for Governor. Here is what I found:

2000: Bush gets 65% of the vote
2002: McCallum gets 62% of the vote
2004: Bush gets 67% of the vote
2006: Green gets 63% of the vote
2008: McCain gets 62% of the vote
2010: Walker gets 71% of the vote
2011: Prosser gets 74% of the vote

While these numbers may not be completely implausible, considering all the other red flags raised in Waukesha County this election it does seem like it is worth noting that Prosser outperformed other Republicans in recent history during a year in which anger with Wisconsin Republicans is higher than it has been in years. This may be circumstantial evidence, but piled with the mountain of other circumstantial evidence that is accumulating this gives us yet one more reason that we need an investigation.
