While some have been watching for Romney to drift down to 47%, we've forgotten to look at what President Obama has accomplished. With nearly 2 million votes yet to be counted (1 million votes from New York alone), President Obama's percentage of the popular vote stands at 50.9%. This makes him the first incumbent to win over 51% of the popular vote since those halcyon days of Dwight D. Eisenhower. According to the L.A. Times, the president won over 65 million votes, decreasing the difference between his '08 tally and his '12 tally to around 3 million. Who knew there were so many 'urban voters' who received so many gifts?
