Obama Wins Election

OTB projects that Barack Obama will easily win more than 270 Electoral votes and become the 44th President of the United States.

Of course, it’s far too early to give final numbers at 8:32 Eastern, with polls still open in much of the country.  Obama’s win in Pennsylvania, however, makes it a fait accompli.

There’s still plenty to watch tonight, but the ultimate outcome of the presidential race is not among them.

  • What will Obama’s national margin of victory be?
  • Will he take Florida, Ohio, and Virginia, making it a rout?
  • Will the Democrats get to 60 seats in the Senate?

    Not only have you predicted he’ll win far more electoral votes, but he’ll also win the election? Wow. 😉

    If I may sorta spam, I took a more dramatic shot of him here.
