Now that Florida has finished counting votes (always a challenge for us), the 2012 presidential election results
are 332 electoral votes for Obama and 206 for Romney -- barring faithless electors. The popular vote is 50.6% Obama, 47.9% Romney and 1.5% other. The Nate Silver Medal for Political Prognostication goes to JKevinKing
. J. Kevin was one of 15 people to tie for first in the electoral half of the contest with a perfect prediction. He finished third in the popular vote half, ahead of I am the Walrus
who tied for ninth. The $50 Threadless
gift certificate and life-size cardboard Joe Biden
are on the way to JKevinKing as soon as I send them. Please keep Joe in the lifestyle to which he has become accustomed.
