If John Edwards didn't help Kerry get NC in 2004, Ryan will be the 2012 and Republican version of this issue.

No one in Wisconsin cares about Paul Ryan. He represents an eighth of the state.

Ryan makes it tighter, but still Obama narrowly.

Obama will just win by a point or two less (which means 4-6 instead of 6-8). Ryan's plan really isnt popular with the states demographic

Obama/Biden. Even if they lose, I'll gladly trade Wisconsin for Florida.

My earlier comment notwithstanding, I do think that the site would be better off if Inks left his position. (The fact that the village idiot has dropped in to express his support for him only confirms this.)

Very slight lean to Obama, but Obama will likely win comfortably anyway.

Even if Ryan brings a decent home state advantage, I think Obama will be sleeping soundly tonight.

It's not whether or not he's a shoo-in, it's skepticism that Ryan makes him any less of a shoo-in if he is one.

Nobody (except maybe Bandit and pBrower, but they don't count) is really considering the election a shoo in for Obama. However, it isn't inaccurate to say that Obama is favored, based on the historical precedent of the incumbent advantage, and his aggregate lead in national polls and in the swing states.

It's a part of Wisconsin that was probably going to Romney anyway (Milwaukee suburbs)

Edwards was at least a Senator, elected statewide.

Its true Paul Ryan wasn't well known, but within a week I think everyone in WI (and the rest of the country) will know who he is. He will have some benefit in WI. This means that both campaigns will now start spending money there.

PPP had Obama +6  -> Obama +1 when Ryan was added to the ticket a month ago.  Don't know if anyone else has publicly polled it.  Nate Silver, for what it's worth, I think has said the VP tends to be 2 points in the home state?  So, agreeing with this for now.  I'm sure every pollster in the world will be doing a Wisconsin poll soon.

The only thing they know about him most likely is he wants to destroy Medicare.

I don't know, I think the beat-back that happened in the wake of the Inks-Deluge debacle (and the descent of Leip to address it) means that the Mods don't have the standing right now to pull off a ban of a big-name poster.  this place would absolutely erupt, at least for opebo.  jmf maybe a bit less so, but still an outcry.  doesn't mean it could not happen at a future point.

Romney wins Wisconsin and the election. 

Wisconsin is trending Republicans with Scott Walker, etc.  (this is not like NC trending republican in 2004). 

Romney should win Florida easily (the scare tactics won't work) and Ohio, Virginia, Iowa. 

Its over for Obama.  The numbers don't lie, and Romney will have the votes in Wisconsin.

I will tell you again, its not all over. Obama leads in most of these states.
