Alexander Burns at Politico argues that Wisconsin in 2011 is a template for what will happen nationally in 2012, a split electorate with a narrow margin of victory:
Wisconsin’s contested Supreme Court race has set in motion a drama that’s by now almost painfully familiar. It goes something like this: A hard-fought election comes down to a few troublesome precincts. National commentators fret about ballot-box shenanigans and voter fraud. A not-ready-for-primetime local official becomes the target of withering partisan attacks.
Then, both parties send in the lawyers.
I’m not sure I agree.
My feeling right now is that Obama either wins comfortably or loses comfortably. He is so polarizing a figure that he manages to resurrect the lovefest and adoration, or he falls miserably on his face.
What do you think?
