Romney/Ryan - 36,568

The Marathon County results follow the general pattern, if not the specific percentages, of CNN's exit poll graphic.

"Surrounding communities"* include
  • Village of Kronenwetter (population 7,210)
  • Town of Rib Mountain (pop. 6,825)
  • Village of Rothschild (pop.5,269)
  • City of Schofield ([pop. 2,169)
  • Town of Stettin (pop. 2,554)
  • Village of Weston (pop. 14,868)
*Based on my limited first-hand knowledge of the geography and residential development of the Wausau area.

Hat tip to Marathon County Clerk Nan Kottke for making detailed election results available online so promptly.
