Obama Wins Wisconsin

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Democrat Barack Obama defeated John McCain in Wisconsin, capturing 10 electoral votes in a state that has not gone for a Republican since 1984.

Both candidates saw the state as winnable, but gave up campaigning about a month ago when polls showed Obama with a double-digit lead.

The call Tuesday was based on an analysis of voter interviews, conducted for The Associated Press by Edison Media Research and Mitofsky International.

Those who voted for Obama say they hope the Wisconsin win will help propel him to the White House.

Eighty-eight-year-old Ed Malcheski of Madison says he's voted Democratic in every presidential election since the 1940s. But he says he never dreamed he would one day get to vote for an African American.
