Wisconsin Voter Bipolar Index: Map of Counties that Voted for Obama in 2008 and Apostle David King in 2010

The Apostle David King, who is at best a nut and at worst a rapist, almost become our Secretary of State last Tuesday, narrowly losing to incumbent Democrat Doug La Follette.  The fact that this race was so close is a testament to how crazy things were last Tuesday and how, in some counties, large droves of voters were straight-party voting based on the top of the ticket choices of Governor and Senator. 

In what is probably a high water mark for Dems, Obama won 59 Wisconsin counties in 2008.  Unbelievably, King won 39 counties in 2010!  Even more shocking is that of those 39, 26 of them voted for Obama in 2008.  I would argue that is these 26 counties that Dems got hurt the worst, from the top of the ticket to the bottom.

Below is a map of the counties that voted for Obama in 2008, but voted for the Apostle David King in 2010:
