Speaking at the panel discussion on the state of the 2012 presidential election
and, Ken Kenneth Mayer Political Science Professor at the University of Wisconsin Madison, has disclosed the likeliness for Barack Obama to win the upcoming election “narrowly”.
According to Prof. Mayer, Obama is going to win probably by 3 or 5 percent point in Wisconsin state. Paul Fanlund of Capital Times argued that in Central parts of the state, a poll showed president Obama with a point lead this week.
Actually, Wisconsin is one the key “battleground state”. President Obama will be visiting Madison Monday, just a day before the national election. And that is going to be the third Wisconsin stop in 5 days.
Emphasizing on Wisconsin being a key “battleground state”, Paul Fanlund of Capital Times mentioned that Wisconsin is a state which has produced many prominent republicans and many prominent democrats. In two years, two most conservative republican and liberal member of the US Senate are elected in Wisconsin.
According to Prof Mayer, president Obama is doing that to make sure that people get out and get their friends to vote.
There could be still out there people who haven’t made up their mind yet for who to vote for. And this could be just 2%. In his explanation, he made it clear that it is not a matter of people not having preference of who they are going to vote for. This is due to the fact for others; politics is not things that they really care about.
