Barack Obama won Ohio by 166,214 votes, final tally shows

Ohio's final election results released today show that Democrat Barack Obama defeated Republican Mitt Romney by 166,214 votes, or 3 percentage points, in the 2012 presidential election.

Both the turnout and margin of victory were down from 2008, when Obama defeated Republican John McCain. But the 5,580,822 people who cast ballots in this year's presidential race were the third most in Ohio history.

The final tally shows Obama with 2,827,621 votes (50.7 percent) to Romney's 2,661,407 votes (47.7 percent). Another 91,794 people voted for other candidates.

Though Obama's margin of victory shrunk some from 2008, when he defeated McCain by 262,224 votes, he did win by more votes than Republican George Bush did in both 2004 (118,601 votes) and 2000 (165,019).
