You know Wisconsin was not supposed to be a battle state for Democrats.
Scenes in presidential races that almost always ends up going to Democrats so why make a -- But maybe not this presidential race because for the first sides of the guy named Ronnie you might want to color the badgers state.
Read to Wisconsin senator Ron Johnson.
Says he knows wise -- getting ahead of himself but senator on what's going on in your finds it.
-- -- -- -- Well first off I was considered Wisconsin are pretty fiscally conservative state I mean.
The citizens Wisconsin have this funny notion that government ought to live within its means.
But let's face -- we we we took a blue state in 2010 turner pretty -- Scott Walker survived a recall I think -- flying colors so.
-- what's really changed since since November 2010 -- I ran.
Spacecraft platform to repeal the health care law and get -- -- ambassador control doing this really changes were closer to implementing that very unpopular law.
And our -- has just gotten worse so I'm I'm very optimistic I think ten electoral votes of Wisconsin has to offer will go to -- -- the next president Mitt Romney.
What you -- -- in recent examples -- -- included have been modest about of a governor Walker's it would need to review we're given much of a chance and I remembered being there.
Not too long it over the recall election and the latest trend line calls we got there are other race dead even and as we all -- retrospect.
Governor Walker -- -- walk.
The latest polls now.
Even -- we have one that shows Romney Ryan up another has it.
Virtually even with the president and decided and it's.
But it is the president's support being overstated and do you think -- was the case with the walker.
You know recount that that that.
It's the Republicans who -- supporters being understated.
Yeah it by being of the conservative exit polls from the recall it was too close to call right I want -- -- what by 667 points.
Sorry obvious polling models are they're difficult you how do you measure.
I tell you -- -- the state as a staff on the Romney bus for two days you're talking to do business people who -- -- spoke -- didn't build their own business.
I can guarantee that the enthusiasm.
The energy level on our site is extremely high people realize this is a failed presidency.
We simply can't afford four more years of -- Obama people understand that.
Nobody would know Danielle you do an episode that is why I -- it's flip it around -- if the president is so god awful and he's still on just such a pathetic job with the economy.
And -- that's your view that's clearly Romney -- it then then the president does should be down ten points of the post.
And he's dead even if not I had and I had electorally as well now I'm not things change I understand.
But at this stage in the campaign that has been a treatise -- the argument and the focus point for Republicans you'd expect more bank that a lot.
Mean yeah I guess I've seen people are really in our informed you people would realize that you know he hasn't cut the deficit in half.
That he didn't bring down the cost of the family plan by Tony 500 dollars he's increased it.
You know that their unemployment has been above 8% for forty -- don't know I don't -- don't -- the -- on the American people that don't even when he may -- but but.
Because of people that are informed.
Understand where disaster over four years -- -- get out to the polls people are formed our skeptically and student I'm not sure they're gonna really make the polls.
Yeah I think that's where the the polling models breakdown.
Okay well put senator great seeing you again.
Senate Ron Johnson received in Tampa next week whether it's what there.
And by the way you're looking at I -- right now.
