The popular vote is still being tallied (provisional and absentee ballots), but Obama is ahead by three million votes:
Obama: 61,164,405 (50.5 percent)
Romney: 58,159,408 (48 percent)
I won! I won!
Joking (sort of)...whenever I did an Electoral College calculation in my spare time, I always came out with Obama leading 332 to 206. The only swing state I couldn't bring myself to give to Obama was North Carolina.
Big win for Obama. Electoral College and popular vote.
This was the most likely outcome according to Nate's model.
What am I missing here - wasn"t Nate Silvers projection 313 vs. 225? I thought Nate called every state correctly?
really wasnt all that close--bested Romney better than either of Bush's 2 wins
How come other sites aren't showing this result? Even google doesn't have it yet. Any other official sources other than HuffPo?
That's the MANDATE, right there.
So fuck off, Republican scum. That shit Boner tried to pull about how the President is supposed to now enact Romney's tax plan?
Never. Going. To. Happen.
The President will throw these bastards a few bones, just for form's sake, but he is not going to put up with their shit this time around.
Nate did call every state correctly, but I have the same question as r4; how is it that he had 313-225 instead of 332-206?
Get what our party wants ACCOMPLISHED.
OK, the 313 was a mean of every scenario; it doesn't change the fact that Nate called every state in the ultimate result.
