Wisconsin in -- so bush can ever take the badger state we're back with our political panel sent AB TU and Wisconsin.
I finger broken -- Wisconsin and I think the excitement about Paul Ryan in addition to the fact that the national party.
Helped Scott Walker in his recall effort there stayed there for Romney since June 5 where he had better numbers than -- Rick Warren is original.
Election the Republican Party Wisconsin is very fired up and I think -- Romney's been women.
-- For those very same reasons I if -- -- the Republicans have a better organization stronger organization Wisconsin I think they've ever had.
Because of the whole Scott Walker thing.
And I think that's gonna serve them well although we should point out and all of these -- all of these races President Obama is ahead and he's had a little bit in all the polls -- -- -- yeah I indeed and so did this is kind of a feeling thing that people people have if you look at the polls.
Well that's right and I adding the same thing we talk about New Hampshire earlier the same thing applies -- -- there's -- clear Obama lead.
Is there going to be a little extra push to the polls are picking up -- -- mentality so Wisconsin would be because of Paul Ryan.
I knew -- should be because Romney.
Discover Massachusetts and has the lake -- in wolf -- These intangibles could come to play on Election Day but I think -- I find the numbers.
A safer bet right now.
Give it 11 thing about -- to a couple of his once it.
-- Paul Ryan has been elected and reelected in a democratic district you know every two years friend for a number of years and it's surprising to people.
Generally polite -- -- -- -- and some may not agree and my two Democrats and rhythm but that the Democrats will still have still voted for him in his district really superior to the other is is people prison -- preakness is very popular in the state to the head of the Republican.
National committee he and Scott Walker and Paul Ryan -- are you know three buddies -- to have you know they're they're likable guy assisting -- There there is a sort of alchemy there right now -- and he would make you think that the Republicans could turn the state that they haven't won.
Correct me -- -- -- wires his 1984.
I believe so.
It's is that it's a state this hospital Democrats that there there are some things and -- that could change that and they did -- -- and Ron Johnson did did join together and knock off a very long time democratic senator.
Russ Feingold so there's a lot of success in recent years.
88 at Michigan.
Michigan stays with Obama I think I mean I don't think there's enough traction there at this point for Romney take -- the auto bailout.
And on and on he's never you know all that Michigan's my -- staff has never really worked for him I just don't think.
I don't see it numbers for him there that would make me think that he takes it.
I was actually the do you know it's a state.
Did -- that he should be doing better Michigan's unemployment is about 9% I think I mean it's it's really really high is a terrible situation.
But the president is way ahead there -- counterpoint to that is that unemployment is high there.
But I think the rate of decline has been very steep since the bill another to get hit sky high levels higher than national average.
But the bailout is really I think he -- there may have a sense of their ceiling as a result of the -- and that's obviously convert.
When we try to strike is so rack mean nothing in Detroit in the city of Detroit is isn't as a national disgrace Hamas -- nobody's tried to -- always been out and do anything for Detroit.
Sure the tearing down houses.
But you know I was I was there for a week during the Republican primary in in Michigan.
And there was some some campaigning around that area for Republicans really paid no attention to the issue of Detroit it was interesting.
When Romney got Kid Rock to endorse him and come perform -- united Romney -- -- kid -- -- songs every single rally.
Kid rock's sort of price of endorsement was you're gonna pay attention to Detroit if you're if you're elected president -- promised -- would but it wasn't a big part of the Republican primary.
Eighty expect worst fight say I -- wars have been quite flip buys it I can't wars tomorrow night but they're recounts and all sorts of allegations of fraud and everything else.
I you know what that's -- hearing so far we're hearing these accounts about people worried that that people have no good at polling places.
I do worry about what Byron mentioned which is the provisional ballots in and Ohio if that was the margins are really tight -- And and we're recounting those aren't finished counting so let November 17 and that just.
Sounds like a nightmare enemy.
The margin -- we really tight as I -- the number of provisional ballots is is small enough.
That the number of -- potentially decisive votes within that pool provisional ballots.
-- would only come into play if the vote was just extremely close closer than 2004 Kerry bush.
-- thank you thank you.
