Legally Romney won the election, it is in the news. obama cheated. there were more voting Ballots in Fla then what there was in the number of registered voters. obama needs to be impeached now.The voting machines were rigged and no democrate had to show voters ID. So please read more on this. Do not be bias, Republicans turn out was a threat factor that kept them home. But still Romney won.

Lukewarm. That's the feeling I get from the election numbers.

Turnout was apparently down, at least as a percentage of eligible voters. The president was re-elected by a reduced margin. The challenger didn't inspire the turnout surge he needed.

Every re-elected president since Andrew Jackson has won with an increased popular vote percentage. Barack Obama didn't. He won 53 percent to 46 percent in 2008. His numbers as I write are 50 percent to 48 percent over Mitt Romney. That could go up to 51 percent to 48 percent when California finishes its count, which took five weeks in 2008.

Obama owes most...
