So that gives President Obama 332 votes in the Electoral College.

Which is 46 more Electoral College votes that any Republican has managed since 1988.

Food for thought.

I'm proud of my home state! It may be the wackiest state in the county (next to Arizona, of course), but I am glad that enough people showed up to the polls and waited in line for up to 8+ hours to get Florida in Obama's column. Now ole Jeb and Rick can run into some corner and sob on each others shoulders.

Me too. I knew Florida was going to be close (less than 1%). I'm happy I was wrong
My final Electoral Vote guess was Obama 303, Romney 235. Even better, Nelson beat Mack for the Senate and West got kicked out of office. Now if we could only do something about the Governor...

I'm sure Obama will take it, considering the fact that Mitt Romney has managed to deceive a lot of voters by flip flopping throughout the election year.

You mean 332 to 206 is "squeaking by?"

I just got an email from someone who said the reason Obama won is because most people who voted for him have a grade school education. So, after doing a little research, I found a site that shows the states with the highest number of college graduates over 25 including Massachusetts, Maryland, Colorado, Connecticut, Vermont, New Jersey, Virginia, New Hampshire, Minnesota and New York (just to name 10) all voted for President Obama. Most of the red states, i.e., West Virginia, Arkansas, Mississippi, Kentucky, Louisiana, Alabama, Indiana, Tennessee, and Oklahoma have the least number of college graduates in the entire country.

However, I guess you have a valid point if you attend the Republican College of BS which offers courses on science, math and biology. You learn interesting facts like the Big Bang and Evolution theories rose up from the pits of hell and getting 206 out of 538 electoral college votes is a landslide. What's really interesting is to find out women have vaginas with magic sperm fighters.
