12. That popular vote total is not yet complete

for example, in CA:
http://vote.sos.ca.gov/returns/president/
Barack Obama (DEM) 5,958,059 59.2%
Mitt Romney (REP) 3,870,455 38.5%

On Huff Post for CA:
Barack Obama 5,863,499 59.1% (missing nearly 100,000 Obama votes)
Mitt Romney 3,816,757 38.5%

But it's getting close and might only shift a decimal point in the margin.

other examples
There are half a million ballots not yet counted in AZ

There are tens of thousands, if not more, of provisional ballots in OH that won't start to get counted for nearly a week - even though Ohio reports 100% complete.

Oregon & WA are not finished. There are other states that are not 100%.

Bush got 62,040,606 in 2004. I'd like to see Obama pass him to help deal with the mandate argument. I'll let you know if and when he does.
