Political Climate Contributing To Voter Fatigue
GREEN BAY, WI - Just days before the GOP Presidential Elections, candidates are in full campaign mode. Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum all spoke at the Faith and Freedom Coalition today in Pewaukee. Romney was introduced by Congressman Paul Ryan, who endorsed the candidate this week. The latest Wisconsin polls show Romney with a 7-to-10 point lead over Rick Santorum this morning. Santorum said he's hoping for an upset in this Wisconsin Primary.
Voters said although they're excited about Wisconsin playing a major role in the GOP Presidential elections they're worried about political fatigue and some voters say it might be too much. George Tuell of Green Bay said "It's pretty tough to decide who to vote for."
George Tuell and Larry Baumann have been voting in every election. Larry Baumann an independent voter from Green Bay said "Years past I used to have a candidate that I really want and now it's kind of about voting for the lesser of 5 evils." But with the intensity of this year's political races they're worried about all of the voting.
Tuell said "You don't want to constantly have to go out and vote and watch all these negative ads and try and sort out what's right and what's not right?" Trish Wightman a moderate voter from Green Bay said "I'm really concerned about the presidential election because i think people are just going to be tired of all the elections that they might not show up for the presidential one."
Romney is currently leading in the polls but experts say that can change. UWGB Political Professor, Michael Kraft said, "Politics is very dynamic. Even one week can shift people around. Wightman said "We'll see what happens Tuesday."
