The first black president surfs into a big win with over 90% of the black vote and 43% of the white vote (similar to Clinton’s numbers). Surprisingly numbers for first-time and black voters did not increase from four years before, still sitting at 11% and 13% respectively. Groups with income under $100,000 and over $200,000 overwhelmingly elected the senator with opposition coming from those making between 100 and $150,000. It is said Parisians celebrated as much as Democrats here in the states. N.C.‘s numbers are still too close to call, with Obama barely in the lead.
After the greatest election day of our lifetimes, one that represents a reprimand on the Bush era, how do you feel? Hung over with joy? Downtrodden because your folks lost? What do you expect come January?
