    Rove's election strategy standard of 50% plus one.  

    Obama won in IN and nobody has stopped referring to IN as a "red" state.  Obama garnered 10.4% more of the IN votes than Kerry did.  In WI, Obama improved over Kerry by only 6.5% .  In 2000 and 2004 WI exhibited exactly what it's currently showing wrt Walker -- a 50/50% split.  If it had shifted decisively since 2000 or 2004 to 52/48 in favor of Democrats, the Walker/Koch efforts to disenfranchise voters wouldn't be successful and that's why this state has received so much attention from the rightwing moneybags.
