Barack Obama Second Term Victory More Impressive As Vote Count Continues

The final vote count for the Presidential Election of 2012 is still being tallied, as absentee votes and overseas military votes are late in arriving and being included in the election results, and as a result, the Barack Obama victory over Mitt Romney is becoming ever more impressive.

What had been thought to be a close popular vote and percentage of vote victory is no longer close at all.

Latest numbers show Obama with about 64.5 million popular votes and 50.8 percent of the vote, with Mitt Romney having 60.3 million popular votes and 47.5 percent of the vote.

So Obama has about 4.2 million more popular votes and about 3.3 percent more percentage of the vote.

Of course, Obama also won 26 states and the District of Columbia, to Romney’s 24 states, and had 332 electoral votes to Romney’s 206 electoral votes, and Obama won every “swing state”, and every state he won in 2008, except for Indiana and North Carolina.

And if one looks at the top ten states, with a majority of the American population, the only states won by Romney were Texas (Number 2), Georgia (Number 9), and North Carolina (Number 10).

And if one looks at the top 22 states, all with 5 million population or more, only seven states (Texas, Georgia, North Carolina, Indiana, Arizona, Tennessee, Missouri), were Republican states in 2012.

And of course, Obama won among African Americans, Hispanics and Latinos, women, single women, Jews, Catholics, Gays and Lesbians, Asian Americans, young people, the Northeast states, the New England states, the Upper Midwest states, the Pacific Coast states, urban voters, secular voters, educated voters, suburban voters, environmentalists, labor voters, intellectual voters—-is this enough indication of his massive victory, with a reaffirmation that the American people had NOT made a mistake in 2008 in voting for the first African American President by voting for him again in 2012?
