Is it just me, or has Wisconsin been trending redder for the past couple of years?

Dustin Ingalls

Not really. Kerry and Gore won the state by less than half a point. Obama won it by 12 or 13. It has a fair number of independents, and they're leaning right, at least now. It's got a progressive tradition in the distant past, but the state has been a closer swing state in the more recent past than it was in 2008.

Well they deserve whatever happens to them, if they lose their job don't blame the dems or Obama. Blame yourselves.

It is trending redder because it is a very white state, and any white person would have to be insane to vote democratic these days. That would be like an African American voting for the KKK.

Whether or not you agree with that last point, it is a true fact that democrats have been losing white voters in droves. This is causing them trouble not only in WI, but also in PA particularly as well as other places. I still think that Obama has the edge in those states but barely, and if the GOP had better candidates they would be crushing him right now.

REALLY??? Who are they polling? They did not poll me nor any of my neighbors who are all sporting RON PAUL signs in their front lawns. And did any other running Republican draw a crowd of 5,200??? Does the media dare to cover the truth?? LIES!!!

PPP POLLS BY YEAR: 2006-2014

We came to PPP after a public poll in the San Jose Mayoral race showed our opponent ahead by 8 points. They found our candidate (Sam Liccardo) ahead by 3 points and that allowed us to be able to push back with the press against the perception that our opponent was now a strong favorite in the race. Sam ended up winning by 2 points and is now the next Mayor of San Jose. PPP worked very fast and had a very accurate read on the electorate when we needed them

PPP is best known for putting out highly accurate polling on key political races across the country, but we also do affordable private research for candidates and organizations.  Why pay tens of thousands of dollars for a survey when one of the most reliable companies in the nation can do it for less?"
