I thought that Wisconsin being the more progressive and liberal/libertarian of the two states affected by this federal ruling would just accept it and move onto more pressing issues in their state. I am not surprised by Indiana wanting to appeal this federal ruling because Indiana can be stubbornly backward and ultra conservative. It is difficult to predict what will happen in Indiana because most of its people are extremely fickle. Its two largest cities, Indianapolis and Fort Wayne tend to be quite conservative and red republican. In stark contrast Gary, Hammond, and Michigan City in northwestern Indiana are staunchly blue democrat probably the only heavily democratic area in the whole state. Indiana is just a strange and unpredictable state where anything can happen.
Yes, including the birth of the Ku Klux Klan and the creation of a Vice-President who couldn't spell "potato."
Ummm, the KKK was initially founded in TN, and then had its second iteration in GA. While certainly strong in IN during the 1920's, it was not "birthed" there, though Dan Quayle was.
NW IN's Calumet Region, which now extends from Whiting to MI City, has always been more a suburb of Chicago than a part of IN; it was the last part of the state to be settled and it grew eastward from Chicago. Most Hoosiers south of US 30 revile it, in no small part because of its large Black, Latino, Slavic, and more recently, Asian population; most Regionites regard the rest of the state as hickdom, although those perceptions are nowhere as fixed as they once were. And, Lake Cty., the heart of "the Region," has the second highest GOP registration of all IN counties, though Democrats generally hold sway there, in one of the most politically corrupt counties in the US east of neighboring Cook in IL.
