1. Too bad the media pushes the "Obama lost the popular vote" meme

Obama is beating Romney by over 3,000,000 votes, but still many people think Romney got more votes.

11. That wasn't true since the middle of election night!

I don't think the media is even pushing it. People are just out of touch.

15. Even before that, they were saying on CNN that Obama would probably pull ahead

in the popular vote as votes from the west coast came in.

5. Why is Huffington saying Obama got 332 EV when the Washington Post

says 303? Why haven't other news sources given the Florida EV to Obama yet?

9. Until the Florida vote is confirmed as official, I will hold my fire

on the astonishing creaming dealt the Romney campaign by the genius of the Obama team.

When the final results are in, I will have some things to say to certain people on Facebook.

10. Because the MSM wants to play-up the "its close" meme to the end

Despite the fact that the President's lead has only grown with every passing day. Florida is a done deal, and HuffPost now has the Pres. at exactly 50%, very nice.

16. Would love to see 47% as official end number...

Or lower...

I was hoping for a bigger trouncing... With popular vote= O 53% to R 47%
http://www.democraticunderground.com/1251211182



But it looks like a done deal that Obama will pick up a few more votes in the final tally...

Romney will hit the magic percentage:

47%



From huff post:
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/11/07/who-won-the-popular-vote-2012_n_2087038.html

As of this writing, Obama had a 58,720,700 (50.1%) to 56,145,950 (48.4%) lead on Mitt Romney for the popular vote.

(UPDATE: As of 2:30 p.m. ET on Wednesday, Obama has widened his popular vote lead. He now leads 60,193,076 or 50.4% to 57,468,587 or 48.1% with nearly all precincts reporting. Still no official word yet, however.)

(UPDATE (2): As of Noon on Friday, with nearly all votes in, Obama assuredly will win the popular vote, leading Romney by a count of 61,173,739 or 50.5% to 58,167,260 or 48.0%. At this point, a few final votes are being counted and then all that's left is for the results to be officially certified.)


48.4% to 48.1% to 48.0% to ?? I hope it goes down to 47% in the final tally.

17. If the HuffPo results are correct...

...most of the remaining outstanding votes are in blue states. It could be 47% to stay!
