A lot of people making a big deal about how Wisconsin is such a blue state historically in 2008 -- exactly right about that.
This was a state where Barack Obama did very well beating John McCain you -- At a three million votes in 2008.
It was 56 to 42 that is a fourteen point spread one of the largest margins of victory for the president four years ago.
But back in 2004 this stayed out of three million votes cast.
I mean this was so tied between John Kerry and George Bush.
And 2004 that's a difference of 111000 votes.
If you went back to 2000 between Al Gore and George Bush.
-- find even closer race at a three million votes cast.
Votes separated -- and that was the and resolve the winner for -- the Democrats there in the state of Wisconsin.
This is a big reason why Scott Walker's winning.
Unemployment -- -- now is trending lower six point 7% which is much slower.
Then the national average -- -- talk about that right now with Ed Rollins former deputy chief of staff to President Reagan they also.
Managed the campaign for Reagan's reelection in 1984 you said major roles in nine other presidential campaigns and also it.
Fox News contributor good morning good morning how -- you how is this news now -- think.
At the White House.
-- they have to be totally depressed this morning because obviously this is their base and and these people are there organization they're great selling point has been we have the organizational team.
We can beat the Romney team and organization.
This was ground zero yesterday and they got clobbered does this go from blue to red.
-- -- go that far I would go that far at this point in time it certainly in the in the in the -- now it there's nine states that Obama won last time that that traditionally men.
Republican states we have to win those at least half of those first.
About I think what it really does it demoralize is labor.
It gives Republicans the opportunity go build an organization and prove we can beat.
The Obama team head to -- an organizational if it is such a big blow for labor what happens other states that are having these battles -- all right I have to think that they're not they're going to be a little discouraged and equally as important -- not can be very happy that the day before the election.
The president is running around New York doing his twentieth fund raiser in this city as opposed to being out there fighting for the same.
Cause you know he just saw the numbers on the board behind us.
This really is it it's been a tight state.
Hasn't gone Republican since 1984.
-- you have ten critical electoral votes on the line and an election and it appears to be absolutely razor thin I would argue that we won governorships there with Tommy Thompson -- run for senate one senate races there as it does senator Johnson while ago.
We can win that state once again it's not that it's not the highest priority.
But certainly it's if I was running Romney's campaign which -- museum not it be right -- in my top fifteen just -- the unemployment rate part of the reason a big reason why walker one.
Unemployment is coming down the books are -- better balance had.
Either one or both of those been reverse does he win this last night.
Probably not but the reason those things your way they are is because he's made them when they are and I think that's a great asset that he that he has and that around you'll be able to benefit -- Thank you -- -- later in the -- Rollins here.
