Wisconsin Puzzle

April 1956
New Republic;4/16/56, Vol. 134 Issue 16, p4
The article focuses on the results of April 1956 Presidential elections in Wisconsin. Every rural area in the state showed Democratic gains, most of them substantial, but this had been expected. What had not been foreseen was that the city vote, in normally Democratic territory, should shift almost as sharply toward President Dwight D. Eisenhower. In Milwaukee county, the President increased his winning margin from 15,000 to 25,000. Statewide, the Democrats showed a three-percent gain because of the strength of the shift of the farm vote.
