California Counting Done

Well, it's supposed to be done. Santa Barbara county hasn't updated their count since November 13, is the lone holdout. The state lists them as having 13k ballots left, so they won't change the final result. It's Obama 60.3% Romney 37.2%. Obama just cleared a 3 million vote lead in the state. He won the rest of the country by 1.7 million votes. So California provided 64% of his margin.

Obama's margin nationwide now is 3.6%. At best it'll end up being 3.7%. In 2008 it was 7.3%. So Romney halved it.

Of course being less of a loser than the worst Republican performance since 1964 still means he lost.
