Presidental Election Results as of 06:30 Central: Obama Wins Electorally and Popularly
Candidate Popular vote Percentage Electoral votes (270 to win)
Barack Obama 59, 303,530 50% 303
Mitt Romney 56, 808,491 48% 206
All that talk about not winning the popular vote is over. It’s an electoral landslide and a clear margin of victory in the popular vote.
In other results Republicans gain in the House of Representatives, and the Democrats are up one in the Senate:
Senate: Democrats 54, Independents 1, Republicans 45
Before: 53 / Now: 54
Before: 2 / Now: 1
Before: 47 / Now: 45
House of Representatives: Republicans 226, Independents 0, Democrats 184
Before: 193 / Now: 184
Before: 0 / Now: 0
Before: 242 / Now: 226
Still undecided: 25 seats
How those 25 remaining seats go will likely decide the levels of cooperation in the next House — will the GOP net up, or will they net down? A lot will be decided by the remaining seats still out in California and other states.
