How Hudson Voted in the November 2012 Election

State voters delivered a victory to President Barack Obama and Tammy Baldwin. Republican incumbents won in three other contested races, but how did each Hudson precinct vote?

HOW THE STATE VOTED 

By now it's no secret that President Barack Obama carried Wisconsin on his way to defeating former Gov. Mitt Romney to earn a second presidential term. Obama scored a 53 percent to 46 percent victory for Wisconsin's 10 electoral votes with 98 percent of the precincts reporting.

Joining Obama back in Washington will be U.S. Rep. Tammy Baldwin (D-WI), who won a U.S. Senate race against former Gov. Tommy Thompson (R-WI). U.S. Rep. Sean Duffy won re-election in Wisconsin Seventh Congressional District over former State Sen. Pat Kreitlow.

Baldwin holds a 51 percent to 46 percent lead with 96 percent of precincts reporting, and Duffy has beaten Kreitlow 56 percent to 44 percent with all precincts counted.

A little closer to home, State Sen. Sheila Harsdorf (R-River Falls) defeated Democratic challenger Dan Olson with a 59 percent to 41 percent lead with just two precincts not yet counted. State Rep. Dean Knudson (R-Hudson) defeated Democratic challenger Diane Odeen by a 56 percent to 44 percent margin with all the precincts counted.

Chadwick - not at all with regard to people lacking common sense if they voted for Obama. My point is simple - I respect everyone's right to have an opinion and would never be so egocentric to think that anyone who did not vote the way I did lacks common sense. That kind of logic is flawed. I respect the system and the outcome. The voter's voted - the decision has been made.
Chadwick November 09, 2012 at 03:18 PM
Sorry, I was referring to Frank; I will bypass the other flub you threw out, but you are correct that the decision has been made. Hopefully they can all work together and start to get our spending in check.

The point, Jim Bob, is that discussions of why Hudson area voters voted as they did may be better informed when the Hudson area vote tally is considered in a broader factual context--just as you did when commenting on generalized population characteristics and the voting tallies in St. Croix and other nearby Counties. Factual data illustrates how the Hudson area voting tally corresponds with or differs from national, statewide, or regional voting tallies. If the Hudson area voting tally is quite different, we ask "Why"? Many theories have been offered in answer (for example: common sense, racism, economic self-interest, political ideology, personal values, educational level, gerry-mandering, etc.). Relevant factual data about Hudson area voters (for example, demographic characteristics) may allow us to test the fit and soundness of any of these theories.

Jim Bob, With all due respect, you are all over the place. In this latest post you seem to be advocating unbridled libertarianism. No rules, no judgment, just leave me alone and if I want to do something or say something I can as long as I am not infringing on anyone else's right to life, liberty, and property. Libertarians generally are more to the right on the political spectrum and seem to be closer to what the Republican Party believes. Which is contrary to things in some of your other posts where it seems like it is ok for the government to infringe on life, liberty, and property. Well anyway, I guess it is not illegal to be a racist. And if the highways you have traveled taught you it is ok to discriminate based on race and vote for someone only because they are a straight white man, so be it. It is just immoral and wrong. There are things that are right and wrong and society helps determine what is what. Society has evolved to where racism is no longer ok. One can be a racist if they want but they are then a pariah…and are morally wrong.

Here are the real facts. A Republican Presidential candidate has only won the national majority 1 time since 1998. I wonder why that is...
