How Much Did Obama Win By?

The outcomes in a number of states have still not been reported (even without those states, they know that Obama has won). The polls in Alaska aren’t even closed yet. It will probably still be a few days until they have the final count, including the absentee ballots. So far it looks like something like 51% to 48% – not a huge win in the popular vote, but a big victory in electoral votes, since in all but two states, the candidate with the majority in the popular vote, even if by one vote, wins all of the electoral votes in that state.
