The final electoral vote total is 332-206. Compared to 2008, Obama lost 6 electoral votes from the 2010 Census, with the additional loss of 27 electoral votes coming from the loss of Indiana, North Carolina and Nebraska Congressional District-2. The current popular vote is around 50%-48% Obama lead. It appears the states of Florida, North Carolina, Virginia and Ohio were the competitive states of this election, margins at or less than 5%.

As a side note…Vigo County, Indiana maintained it’s bellwether status for another election. Obama defeated Romney in the western border county by 339 votes out of 39,075 votes cast.

      As am I :) Obama performed much better than I expected even in my most optimistic projections that would’ve had him winning. Yesterday was a referendum on his Presidency and America voted, “Approve”.
