Voter ID "absolutely" would have made a difference in the outcome of the election, state Sen. Alberta Darling (R) told Mike Gousha of WISN on Sunday. She suggested that voter fraud helped President Barack Obama win the state.

"We're looking at all sorts of different precincts and all sorts of same-day registrations," Darling said. "I know people will go, 'We don't have fraud and abuse in our elections.' But why, why can't we have voter ID when the majority of our people in Wisconsin wanted it, we passed it, the governor signed it? Why should one judge in Dane County be able to hold it up?"

A Wisconsin judge put the state's voter ID law on hold in March, and the Wisconsin Supreme Court later declined to take up the case.

Obama won more than 52 percent of the vote in Wisconsin. His margin of victory over Romney was more than 200,000 votes.
