Wisconsin Election Results 2012

Updates on the 2012 federal and state elections will be posted here throughout the day on Tuesday. You can also connect with us on Twitter at #PatchElections and in our live blog.

Heading into Tuesday's presidential election, Democratic insiders were feeling a bit more confident about their party's chances than their Republican counterparts, according to the results of Patch's final "Blue Wisconsin" and "Red Wisconsin" surveys.

The surveys of party activists, elected officials and bloggers and other "influencers" showed 95 percent of the Democrats believe that President Barack Obama will carry Wisconsin and 92 percent say he will win the national popular vote.

Among Republicans insiders, 70 percent said GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney will win Wisconsin, and 88 percent said he will take the national vote.


All results shown here are statewide totals. Winners appear in bold.

It would be nice if they had posted ALL of the results, not just the results for the parties of our 2 party dictatorship.

Some of the best news for Wisconsin and especially nationally is the addition of more women to the Senate! Finally, more common sense will prevail. While we think Barack Obama is one of the best things to happen for our country, maybe our next president will be a woman--Hillary Clinton? Elizabeth Warren? It would be nice to see more of the women's perspective finally to help lead our country. Look harder at what they do each day in their own families, in business, in making "connections" with friends and community members. We're getting closer now as they gain seats in government! Good news!!!

FreeThought Toy: Yes we should have less choice in elections because the only the all mighty candidates of the two party duopoly are valid. Maybe we should pass a law to make it illegal for anyone except members of those two parties to run. After all nobody else has a chance. Sarcasm aside, if you really believe that third party candidates do not have a chance then you have to admit that we do not really have democracy in this country. Then ask yourself why you continue to support a party that stacks the deck against choice, especially at the Presidential level? When the media buys into that argument it becomes self fulfilling. The myth that the results of the 2000 or 2004 elections were the fault of Nader is perpetuated to continue to own your vote.
