Consensus projections are that Barack Obama has won the 2012 presidential election! With the majority of states reported, Barack Obama has locked in 275 electoral votes to Mitt Romney’s 203. As you know it takes 271 electoral college votes to win.
Interestingly enough, Mitt Romney leads the popular vote as of this moment, 45,899,639 to 45,709,932. If Romney’s general vote lead holds up this will be the second time a president was elected by winning the electoral college but losing the general populous vote.
Congratulations to President Obama. Let’s make positive changes over the next four years!
