The media’s moved on from Election Day 2012, but Jonathan Bernstein reminds us that the final vote totals are still coming in and Obama’s lead has only kept growing:
The Cook Report’s David Wasserman has been keeping tabs on the current vote totals, and finds today that Obama’s lead is up to 3.1% nationally, and still rising. That’s up from 2.3% the morning after election day; I’m not sure what it was when the networks closed up shop on election night. That’s a pretty large swing! It seems pretty likely that Obama’s lead will wind up a full percentage point higher than it was at that point. Of course, no one really cares that much is a national lead goes from 2.3 to 3.1 percent, but they sure might if it were to go from a 1% GOP lead on Election Day to, say, a half a point lead for the Democrat when all was said and done.
Meanwhile, Colorado was at 4.7% on the morning after and is now at 5% even (actually a 4.98% lead, just below Obama’s 5.02% lead in Pennsylvania as of now).
