WISCONSIN (10 electoral votes)

The opposite of Virginia, Wisconsin is a typically “blue” state. However, the president’s once double-digit lead there has shrunk to just four points, polls show. Add that decline to the fact that Romney’s running mate, Rep. Paul Ryan is a Wisconsin native, and the state’s 10 electoral votes may belong to the Republican ticket in 2012. Polls close at 9 p.m. Eastern.
