American election results state by state.

Remember there are 50 states in the USA? Well here is how each of them voted for the 2012 presidential elections.
Don’t forget that in the USA, the president is NOT elected by everyone : only 580 people are in the Electoral College and vote for the president. American citizens first vote for their representatives in the Electoral College, then those people vote for the president! Each state gets a number of votes relative to their population.

Florida’s results are just an estimation, they are not known yet.
