It’s is finally over. Obama wins Florida.

Filed in National by on November 8, 2012

…. or, an alternative title would be, Romney concedes Florda. “Though votes are still being tallied, President Obama is all but assured a victory in Florida because the lion’s share of the outstanding ballots come from Democratic-heavy counties,” the Miami Herald reports.

“Obama leads Republican Mitt Romney by 55,825 votes — or 49.9 percent to 49.24 — but there just aren’t enough votes from Republican areas to allow the challenger to catch up. Romney’s Florida campaign has acknowledged their candidate lost in Florida as well. Romney already conceded the national race after he lost the other battleground states.”

So that’s a 332-206 landslide.

    And the final Polling Report Projection was right. ;)

    I still can’t believe George W Bush won two Presidential elections.

  4. socialistic ben says:

    you shouldn’t. He only won one presidential election.

    @c “It also means that Nate Was Right.”

    Sorry. Nate went with 303 as his final published prognostication.
    332 was predicted by his main competition, and by DD.

  6. Delaware Dem says:

    Yes, I am better than Nate Silver! LOL, no. What Cass is talking about is the probability map on the right column of 538, and the probability map had it at 332-206. Nate, for whatever reason, went with the lower number thinking that Obama would not win Florida. He should have trusted his own probability map.

    More than anything I am just pointing out again that for all of the vilification Nate Silver had pointed his way by conservatives and the pundit class, that he still had the better end of what folks might call “information”.

  8. Jason330 says:

    Nobody who thought Silver was working for Obama will think that the results prove anything.

  9. Liberal Elite says:

    @DD ” Nate, for whatever reason, went with the lower number thinking that Obama would not win Florida.”

    That shows what Republican thinking will get you…

    OK. OK. I agree that Nate gets the big win, even though some of his competitors did better. Nate only gets the big win because he was attacked more by the right wing.
