History Points To Victory For Mitt Romney

American Glob

In 2008, Obama defeated John McCain in the electoral college by a vote of 365 to 173.

In 2012, it is widely believed that Mitt Romney will win Florida, North Carolina, Virginia, Iowa, Colorado and New Hampshire, all of which voted for Obama in 2008.

New polls have even suggested that Romney could take Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania.

All polling speculation aside, if Obama wins a second term, he will be the first incumbent to do so with less electoral votes at the time of his re-election in over 30 years. See below.
