Problem applying group policy objects to client

I am setting up a WSUS server and using GP to setup automatic updates on the clients.  I edited all the GP objects to my specific settings and deployed it all client computers.  When I go to the client computer and check the local computer policy under group policy, none of the settings for the windows update are enabled, shouldn't I see the same settings enabled?  I setup the policy yesterday and I ran "gpupdate /force".  When I run "gpresult", I see the group policy is getting applied.

No you don't see this on the clients local policy. You can verify with gpresult as you did already. Furthermore for WSUS settings you can take a look at the clients registry under HKLM\Software\Policies.
