I do not think it is wise for Ryan to have a Victory rally before he has a victory. ..................... @NicholsUprising Obama leads Romney 51-43 in new @MULawPoll. Mitt #s collapsing. Pattern of polls suggests WI no longer a battleground. @thenation @WeGotEd

@morninmist - "@WeGotEd" Who really cares if you and your fellow lefties have Ed, erectile dysfunction, and why on earth are you talking about that on a public forum?

anyone get the polling data from the MU Poll? They oversampled Democrats by what 8% last time?

Ryan laid out how he and Romney will prevent this country from going off a fiscal cliff. If you want to see the economy come roaring back, Vote Romney/ Ryan.

Waiting to read cross tabs on Marquette poll, but informed Dems are way over sampled again!

Great rally today for Paul Ryan! I was just wondering if the Patch is going to update this story?

Oh yeah, Marquette Law School has a big Democrat bias. Please.

Is it like Mitt's magical plan to create 12 million jobs, cut taxes for the wealthy, increase military spending AND cut the deficit? Too bad R/R won't get the chance to try their magic act on America.

Thank you for covering this event.

I just wish that Paul had made it clear earlier in the congressional campaign that he was not going to debate his congressional opponents. It would have saved us a lot of hassles and time, which we could have spent on getting out our message.

I'll update the MU poll story today, but quickly - the respondents are not taken from lists of partisans. Instead, pollsters ask respondents if they are D, R, or I. Professor Charles Franklin made a point of saying they ask and take the answers at face value.

We put up a photo gallery with captions from the event. I also have video that I hope to upload today of Rep. Ryan speaking.

Stormy: Apparently Ryan's visit to Racine is still 'breaking news' in Caledonia--updates must be coming as more information pours in from location...

Open up a history book, Keith. VP candidates don't debate their congressional opponents...
