In most states, the numbers are shaping up to be even lower than in 2004, said Curtis Gans, the director of American University's Center for the Study of the American Electorate. Still, the full picture may not be known for weeks, because much of the counting takes place after Election Day.
"By and large, people didn't show up," Gans said.
In Texas, turnout for the presidential race dropped almost 11 percent from 2008. Vermont and South Carolina saw declines that were almost as large. The drop-off was more than 7 percent in Maryland, where voters approved a ballot measure allowing gay marriage.
With 95 percent of precincts reporting, The Associated Press figures showed more than 117 million people had voted in the White House race, but that number will go up as more votes are counted. In 2008, 131 million people voted, according to the Federal Election Commission.

No, Obama's win is the American people's judgement on multimillionaire Big Business manipulators for turning their back on the Americans whose hard work made them rich and built this once great nation.

Obama cheated! The vote was based on a 2008 turnout model and included too many Democrats!!!

Yeah, Karl Rove going into meltdown mode and Megyn Kelly (of all people) trying to be the voice of reason was pretty amusing. Later on it almost seemed sad, and it reminded you of a group of people trying to coax their friend off the ledge.

Hopefully Karl Rove's time of relevancy is completely finished.
