Wisconsin primary says GAME OVER for Republicans

Obama wins convincingly in Wisconsin.

Wisconsin is a state that is split down the middle. Kerry won Wisconsin in '04 by the slimmest of margins, 0.38%. Gore won in 2000 by an even closer vote, 0.22%.

Look at the turnout in Wisconsin!!

(With 97% of precincts reporting)

1,080, 298 - Democratic votes
394,074 - Republican votes

Barack Obama, by himself:

- received nearly triple the votes of John McCain (636,049 to 219,838)

- nearly double the votes of ALL Republican candidates COMBINED! (636,049 to 394,074)

These stunning numbers send a clear message:

GAME OVER for the GOP

I was listening to NPR on monday and they were interviewing lifelong republicans who said they were voting for Obama. WI has an open primary. I hope your assessment is correct.

What will they do in November? I think they've decided he's an easier target than she.

Perhaps the low turnout was due to McCain already wrapping up the nomination, and the Obama/Clinton contest was still to be decided?

Projecting this towards the November election is simply foolhardy.

NPR spent time (as did othr news organizatins) talking to voters in WI. A number of them were Republicans (self-ID'd) who said they would vote for Obama because he looked like the only reasonable choice.

I feel fairly certain that John McCain has more skeletons in his closet and he's also got that famously ugly temper of his which will, sooner or later, slip its leash. I just hope it's before enough idiots vote to give him ther "football".

Thanks for the advice on better health. I know I was surprised by her renewed interest in butter and lard. She gets this stuff from Sally Fallon's book, "Nourishing Traditions." Have you heard of it?
