I have Nicotiana, Sensation,I started them this summer but they did not grow well, so I would like to know if I could bring them indoors for the winter, will they survive?

It looks like you can try. Nicotiana 'Sensation' is an annual so it would normally last only the one growing season, but possibly a perennial in warmer zones 9-10, but probably already shutting down its physiology if grown outside in Wisconsin for the most part.
