Okay, so what happened this election day?
I'm not sure. Following elections news is hard, because every station jumps the gun in the rush to be first to figure out who the President is. So, for example, the news reporters said Obama won California, when only 2% of the ballots in California had been counted. That's highly inaccurate and offensive to the name of journalism.
If the news people are right in their guesses...Romney got more votes, but Obama won overall, because he got Ohio. That's what the news people are saying; Ohio got to pick our next President. But I'm looking at the map, and I have no idea how Obama won Ohio, because I'm seeing Romney outnumbering him at least three to one.
Hmmm...you know what? I'm going to sleep now. Maybe when I wake up tomorrow, the vote tallies will be more complete. As of now, North Carolina is the only state that has counted all its ballots. That makes it too early to know for sure, but I'm guessing the news folks are right about four more years for Obama.
