    ...according to pollster.com and that's without many of these California votes being counted, along with hundreds of thousands of other votes in mostly blue states.

    Pollster currently sees the percentages as O-50.5% R-48%, so Obama's margin is now up to +2.5%. That's likely to climb slightly along with his popular vote edge as all the votes get counted.

    So while this wasn't quite the landslide of 2008, it is a very solid win indeed, especially in a down economy.

    Nate's popular vote estimates of O-50.8% R-48.3% seem right on the money, validating the idea of extrapolating the national margin in some measure from the swing-state margins combined with the use of national polls.
