48. D'oh! So close...

But it looks like if Obama can pick up a few more votes in the final tally...

Romney might 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.
