Exit polls show that people thought Romney would just institute the policies of George Bush that got us into trouble in the first place (see Wall St. Journal poll.) He didn’t help himself by declaring class war on almost half of the U.S. population. One bright spot. Think of all the money that Karl Rove, Sheldon Adelson, and the Kook brothers wasted.
Obama won. Not by a lot, but by more than enough.

In the end it came down to the battleground states, and President Obama won most of them by slim, but decisive, margins.

Florida - Obama +1

Ohio - Obama +2

Virginia - Obama +3

Colorado - Obama +3

New Hampshire - Obama +5

Wisconsin - Obama +5

Iowa - Obama +6

Michigan - Obama +7

Of the nine battleground states, only North Carolina went into Mitt Romney's column and that by 3 percentage points.
