While we're on the subject of individual state results, I have always wondered about Wisconsin.  I remember that essentially all the polls showed that Bush was ahead.  In my personal prediction I remember I had Wisconsin in the Bush column.  What happened?  Were the polls simply wrong, or *shock* did the Kerry campaign do something right for once?

Yeah, a lot of people had Iowa and Wisconsin switched (though I got them right Smiley).  I think in Wisonsin it was the same day registration, plus Kerry did really really well in Milwaukee.  In Iowa, I think the social issues got to the voters.  To me, Iowa just seems like a more conservative state overall.

At the very least, Milwaukee County has some splainin' to do.

Haha, no sh**t there. There was a small investigation a few weeks after the election and they found a couple hundred fake addresses that had registered the same day as the election. That practice needs to go, now.

Quoted from another thread.

I also thought Bush would win WI, it just seems socially conservative enough.

It does have some such elements, but remember that Feingold won in 2004 with 55 percent of the vote in Wisconsin.
