If Wisconsin Is the Rule… Obama Will Lose 12 States He Won in 2008

In the 2008 election Obama took Wisconsin by 13.9% of the vote.

In the 2010 election Republicans took several Wisconsin state offices in a wave election.

In the April 2011 election the conservative candidate Justice David Prosser won the supreme court position by .5% of the vote despite the nuclear firestorm the left hurled at him.

If Wisconsin is a sign… Obama will lose 12 states in 2012 that he won in 2008.
Data via US Election Atlas:

The yellow highlighted boxes indicate the states that went to Obama by less than 13.9% – Wisconsin’s victory margin in 2008.
The dark blue highlighted boxes are the states that Obama won by over 13.9% in 2008.

Regardless, things don’t look good for Team Obama.
