Default 2012 Presidential election results: Obama wins!

If you're reporting states, please post a credible link to results, so we can keep these first few posts accurately updated.

Most of these were already assumed; I put the battle ground states in green.

Alabama Romney +9
Alaska +3
Arizona
Romney +11
Arkansas Romney +6
California +55 Obama
Colorado +9 Obama
Connecticut +7 Obama
Delaware +3 Obama
Florida +29 Obama (leading, as of the following morning. Florida - old people - they needed to get some rest before resuming counting the ballots.)
Georgia Romney +16
Hawaii +4
Idaho +4 Romney
Illinois +20 Obama
Indiana Romney +11
Iowa +6 Obama
Kansas Romney +6
Kentucky Romney +8
Louisianna Romney +8
Maine +4 Obama
Maryland +10 Obama

Michigan +16 Obama
Minnesota +10 Obama
Mississippi Romney +6
Missouri +10 Romney
Montana +3 Romney
Nebraska Romney +5

I suggest that you keep updating the OP as each state is called.

Seriously - Vermont? You want to keep the OP updated? If so, I can lock the thread I just made - we posted it nearly simultaneously.

edit: merge is a good idea.

I'll stick to what I said earlier.. we should know relatively early (even if it isn't called until late). If the numbers are not surprising anyone, Obama has won.

The Vermont announcement was obviously a joke.

DrPizza -- delete my lead post if you can, yours makes more sense to have up front.

So far, the most spectacular thing about this election is Chuck Todd's cool touch screen on NBC

I don't understand how they're calling states with 4% and 0% reporting.

Agreed - Kentucky only has 4.4% of the votes in.

Some are just obvious, for instance they could technically just call CA for Obama. In any case the only thing that matters are the few battleground states.

Nothing so far showing any indication that the state polling of the last few weeks has been off. But it's early.
