2012 U.S. Presidential Election Results

Wed Nov 07, 2012 2:00 am

Hi all,

Thought we should have a thread for the results, separate from all the speculation/moaning threads.

A whole slew of states are beginning to report ... right now.

It's looking like NC shouldn't have been abandoned by the campaigns quite so soon.

Especially Romney's

Mittens just closed the gap in Florida; right while Wolf Blitzer was talking. Obama was ahead by 16,000 or so; then the screen blinked and the lead had narrowed to 1100.

Gots to say, no matter which side you're on, ya gotta enjoy the adrenaline in this election.

Whoever wins, I hope the country can be united and go in a great direction... yeah I know that'll never happen lol

Argh, I'm trying to match up CNN's declared states to a list of states/electoral votes, and it's not coming up right. (Probably because I'm distracted making dinner.) What I have so far:

Obama

Delaware - 3
District of Columbia - 3
Maine - 4
Maryland - 10
Massachusetts - 11
Michigan - 16
New Jersey - 14
New York - 29
Rhode Island - 4
Vermont - 3

Romney
Alabama - 9
Arkansas - 6
Georgia - 16
Kansas - 6
Kentucky - 8
Louisiana - 8
Mississippi - 6
Nebraska - 5
North Dakota - 3
Oklahoma - 7
South Dakota - 3
South Carolina - 9
Tennessee - 11
Texas - 38
West Virginia - 5
Wyoming - 3

Until at least 90% of the votes are in, it is difficult to tell who will come out ahead in Ohio, Florida and Virginia. And maybe Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Missouri and Colorado too.

Very confident Obama will very unfortunately win again. This country was fooled once again. At the same time I know the GOP needs to make some changes in its party platforms.

So what does this election mean?

NOTHING. Republicans have kept the house, it will be status quo unless we can finally get some compromise from both sides. I can't believe this country thinks we are going in the correct direction. Well assuming Obama takes the popular vote which he might not.

I'm surprised at the Florida vote right now because, with 85.3% reporting and only 39.9% reporting in Miami-Dade and 84% in Broward, Obama still has the lead. There are only 8 counties left with less than 80% reporting, and Miami-Dade has a greater population than almost all of those combined, from what I can tell. Still going to be too close to call until later, though.

Even with Obama, I, as someone with an urban planning background, have failed to land a full-time job.

What's the job outlook like eleswhere in the world? I'm just curious... I'm coming up on 4 years laboring as a caregiver and it's getting to the point where both my mental and physical health are deteriorating. Obamacare will not help me... All the socialist things Obama wants to pass will not help me... I'm sorry, but that's my strong opinion on that...
