The 2012 Presidential election results were certified in our fair state and…brace yourselves here… Governor Mitt Romney from the great commonwealth of Massachusetts won our state’s 16 Electoral College votes carrying 53.3% of the vote to Obama’s 45.5 %. A total of 2,078,688 cast votes for Romney and the incumbent president earned 1,773,827. #mindblown
Nationally, however, we are learning that the race was nowhere near close, the Republicans were pretty thoroughly shellacked and bamboozled (again) by Obama. He now has nearly a four-point margin over Mitt with votes still to be counted in NY, HI an WV. With those coming in, he will surely break the 51% barrier. He’s sitting at 50.97% to Mitt’s 47.29%. Obama has 65,594,456 votes and Mitt 60,859,486.
Also, today is the one election day that matters as Electoral College voters across the U.S. cast their votes for President, meaning the preceding paragraph is essentially useless. Someone be sure to let us know how the Georgia voters cast their ballots!
