The vote and the presidency. We’ll have all the news, numbers, and analysis from election day.
It’s four more years for Barack Obama. After all the months and years and money and passion, it was not a razor thin contest. Three hundred plus electoral votes for the President. 206 for Mitt Romney. Obama takes the popular vote. Mops up in the swing states.
Republicans hold the House. Democrats gain in the Senate. This is indeed a deeply divided nation, but not a toss-up nation last night. Mitt Romney was gracious in defeat. Barack Obama called again for a United States of America. A changing America.
This hour, On Point: we’ll look at the vote that’s made it Obama.

From Tom’s Reading List
The Wall Street Journal “After months of candidates sparring and billions of dollars of campaign spending, voters went to the polls Tuesday to decide a presidential race that has been defined by its intensity and razor-thin margins.”
The Washington Post “President Obama held a slim advantage in national and battleground polls going into Election Day as the candidates made their last mad dashes across swing-state America and their campaigns braced for a day of intense battle — and the legal fights that may follow.”
