Final 2012 Presidential Election Electoral and Popular Vote

January 4, 2013

While it may come as a surprise since Election Day was about two months ago, Barack Obama and Joe Biden were not officially re-elected until today (January 4), when the electoral vote results of each state (certified by the Electors) were read and tabulated in Congress.    There were no surprises:  The final tally was Obama 332, Romney 206 for President;  Biden 332, Ryan 206 for Vice-President.     For those interested in the process of getting from the vote on Election Day to today, this article from the National Archives website provides a high-level summary.     That narrative specifies January 6th as the date for the count in Congress; we’re assuming it was changed to today because the 6th is a Sunday.

The final popular vote totals were 65,899,660 for Obama-Biden (51.1%) and 60,932,152 (47.2%) for Romney-Ryan.   Visit our states area to see the 2012 popular vote percentages, and compare those to the prior 4 elections.  (Note that the very bottom part of these pages are not yet updated for 2012.)

**  In the weeks ahead, we’ll be updating the site (and our iPad App) to let you start creating and sharing 2016 electoral maps.    Since both parties will have new nominees, the updates will allow you to create specific Democratic and Republican match-ups. **

    The date was changed by a Joint Resolution of Congress H.J. #122, signed by the Speaker of the House and the President of the Senate (Biden) on December 20, 2012. This was unusual in that when the mandated 6th of January falls on a weekend day, in the past the date was always moved forward to the next weekday (rather than backward). Assume nothing – a little research will provide the facts!

    About 22% of the American voters voted. Didn’t you care? It’s your fault. You had a chance to do something GREAT and you screwed UP whoever you are….

    Obama won by 51 percent which means for the most part only a little over half wanted hes sorry as— . He won by lies,deceit,blaming ,fooling ignorant voter zombies and some voter fraud . now we are getting and seeing the damage he done to America, and the middle east. failed at everything except for lying, blaming speeches,and major cover ups,on scandles,hiding evidence and keeping the liberal socialist press with him. he succeded on those things very well,and delivered on hes promise, a change we can believe in, that’s for sure real sure.
