CNN projects President Barack Obama will win Wisconsin.
In 2008, Obama bested Republican challenger Sen. John McCain by nearly 14 points – 56% to McCain’s 42%. Wisconsin has voted Democratic in the last six presidential elections, but Democratic candidate Al Gore won in 2000 by a margin of only 0.2 percent.
Obama last visited the state on Monday, delivering remarks to supporters in Madison.
Wisconsin has ten electoral votes and is home to Romney’s running mate, Rep. Paul Ryan, a congressman in the state’s 1st Congressional District. Ryan voted earlier today in his hometown of Janesville. He has held seven events in the state since being tapped as Romney’s running mate. Ryan is the first Wisconsinite to serve on a major party ticket.
Romney delivered his closing argument speech in West Allis, Wisconsin on Friday, November 2. In the speech, Romney said the “closing hours of a campaign have a dynamic of their own” and made the case that four years of Obama had produced few of the economic results that were promised at the beginning of the president’s term.
