Election results

Yesterday I wrote of projecting results for the election: The website projects Obama the winner, capturing 349 electoral votes and 52.3% of the popular vote; 189 and 46.2% are the numbers for McCain.

The results, as of 5pm on the Wednesday after the election, the numbers are: Right now, Barack Obama has 63.7 million popular votes to John McCain's 56.3 million, whereas third party candidates have roughly a collective 1.6 million. That works out to 52.4 percent of the vote for Obama and 46.3 percent for McCain ... conspicuously close to our pre-election estimates of 52.3 percent for Obama and 46.2 percent for McCain.

That is really good.
