What % Of The Popular Vote Did Obama Get?
What's it now? It keeps changing.

Also, when was the last time a president got the popular vote % that he has gotten with this election?

1. It's about 52.5 to 46.5
Give or take. It'll change a couple of tenths of a percent either way.

5. So, the "greatest liberal in the Senate "has won the biggest victory
of any candidate in 20 years. Clinton won more electoral votes but never cracked 50% of the vote.

7. Jimmy Carter got 52% of the popular vote in 1976, but he
only got 297 electoral votes. And he got that by sweeping the south, every southern state except Virginia.
