Just a hair under half. The country remains divided.
47.5% for Romney now:
Poetic justice: Romney likely to finish at 47 percent
By Greg Sargent
When all the votes are counted, could Mitt Romney really end up achieving perfect poetic justice by finishing with 47 percent of the national vote? Yup. Dave Wasserman of the nonpartisan Cook Political Report says new votes in from Maryland put Romney at 47.56 percent. He predicts with certainty that with all of New York and California counted, Romney will end up below 47.5 percent of the vote.
Rounded, of course, that would put the final tally at 51-47. Anticipating this moment, Markos Moulitsas has inaugurated the “Romney 47 percent watch.”
You're still on the election?
It's official. Romney will get no more than 47% of the vote
We're still waiting on several million more votes. California alone has just shy of 1 million votes remaining to be counted, including another 196,621 from Los Angeles County. New York is sitting on another million or so. And most states are still sitting on uncounted (or unreported) ballots. In fact, just 12 states have final certified vote tallies.
So what drama is left? Well, if Obama surpasses 51 percent, he'll be just the fourth third president in the last 100 years to do so twice, and the last since Ronald Reagan Dwight Eisenhower. That shouldn't be a problem given what's left to be counted.
It will also be interesting to see whether this year's vote tally meets or exceeds that of 2008. New York and California will close roughly half the gap. Are there enough votes left elsewhere? Seems doubtful. We'll be looking at state-by-state turnout numbers after all the votes are counted, but thus far, it looks like those states with competitive races had stronger turnout, while everyone else tapered off.
shuffles will go down in history as that 47% guy.................good riddance
BOL @ the leftwingers thinking that almost half the country voting against their incompetent, racist homeboy means that their booze-fueled clown has a man date.
Then again ... these delusional leftwingers might be on to something: Barry probably has several men dates lined up.
The irony in all this is proof final for me that the finger of the Lord was in on this election.
Why can't republicans accept the will of the Lord ?
p.s it is divided though...winners vs. losers.
