Ryan’s mixed election day in Wisconsin

His House constituents returned him to Congress. They also voted narrowly for the Romney-Ryan ticket.

But his congressional victory margin was his smallest ever 11.5 points.

He lost his hometown of Janesville twice: by 10 points for Congress and by 25 points for vice president.

And the GOP ticket lost the battleground state of Wisconsin by seven points in a race Republicans thought would be far closer. In Ryans southern Wisconsins district, the Romney-Ryan ticket ran about three points behind Ryan the congressional candidate.

In the end, there’s little in the numbers to suggest Ryan provided a meaningful home-state boost to Romney.
