WEST ALLIS -- There's no doubt people, especially people in Wisconsin, are passionate about politics.

Whether Republican or Democrat, Green Party or Independent, many people have an opinion about Tuesday night's election results.

President Obama beat former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney. He'll serve another four years in the White House.

Democratic Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin made history. She was the first woman to be elected to represent Wisconsin in the House and will now be serving as the first non-incumbent openly gay U.S. Senator.

Dozens of people were up early Wednesday morning, enjoying breakfast and talking politics.

CBS 58's Vanessa Murphy spoke with some of them, and she's found many are split on the outcome.
