The cable news networks may be too hesitant to do it right now, but I will: Obama has won the presidential election.
As of this moment, he’s at 200 electoral votes including big wins in PA and OH. That means all Obama need do now is take CA, OR, WA, and HI (all states polling heavily in his favor) to eclipse the 270 mark to win.
Now the only question is if will Obama also take NC, CO, and FL (with VA being surprisingly tight) to reclassify his campaign from victory to blowout.
But you can book it: Barack Obama will be the next president of the United States.
