Earlier in the cycle the Republicans had high hopes for Wisconsin. It appears to be one of the only states where Mitt Romney stood a good chance of expanding the map to make up for potential loses in previously traditional Republicans states like Virginia. The naming of Wisconsin native Paul Ryan as VP was part of a real push to win the state and it did produce a noticeable boost for the ticket there at the time. That bump, though, appears to have faded.
