The 2012 Election Results: Obama’s Win in 1 Map

In the end, it wasn’t even that close. Here’s how the electoral map has looked since 2 a.m. Wednesday. Barack Obama captured 303 electoral votes, while Mitt Romney has 206. The race for Florida’s 29 electoral vote is still too close to call. But the only question at this point is how large Obama’s margin of victory in the electoral college will be. The president also leads the popular vote 50 to 48 percent.
Obama performed very well in swing states. Excepting Florida, he lost only Indiana and North Carolina from his huge 2008 victory, in which he took 365 electoral votes. We’ll update this map as results from Florida come in.
