Obama Re-elected, Wins Wisconsin

Election 2012

UNDATED (WHBL) - Democrat Barack Obama became the third president in a row to win a second term – and Wisconsin continued its 28-year string of sending Democrats to the White House. With about 91-percent of the statewide vote counted, Obama had a five-point lead over Republican Mitt Romney in Wisconsin, 52-47 percent. Not even the presence of Janesville’s Paul Ryan on the ticket helped the G-O-P, as it failed to win Wisconsin’s 10 electoral votes for the seventh straight time. State Senate Republican Alberta Darling, who co-chaired the Romney campaign in Wisconsin, said her party was stunned. She said the G-O-P base was energized, and independents had been falling their way. But Darling said, “Maybe we were just not dealing with the real reality.”  A-P exit polls showed that Obama got his Wisconsin support from women, African-Americans, those under 40, college grads, and families making less than 50-thousand-dollars a year. Romney was preferred among Wisconsin men, voters in their 40’s and over-65, Christians, and families making over 100-thousand. Other exit polls showed that independents were about split. Ryan landed on his feet, as he was easily re-elected to the First District House seat he’s held for 14 years.
