Since 2010, Wisconsin has been a mainstay on the political center stage. Scott Walker's controversial reforms made him a darling of Conservative America and enemy number of one of Liberal America. After Walker's rather abysmal Presidential run in 2016, and the wave of anti-Trumpism sweeping across the United States in 2018, some believed Walker might lose his historic 4th election for the Governor's seat in the Badger State. This poster will provide unique spatial analysis of the 2018 Midterm Elections in Wisconsin for both the Gubernatorial election and U.S. Senate election. Analyses will be conducted at both the county and voting district level in an attempt to understand what happened in November 2018 in Wisconsin.
