For the past five presidential elections, Wisconsin’s electoral votes have gone to the Democratic candidate. But Gov. Scott Walker’s win in Tuesday’s recall election has revived enthusiasm among Republican voters, and it is becoming harder to discern which way the state will go in November.
Interestingly enough, the same exit polling that correctly projected Walker as the early winner predicted the state will “go blue” for Obama again this fall.
