(Newser) – See, that didn't take so long. Florida finished its count of absentee ballots today, and, as expected, President Obama won the state. The victory makes the final Electoral College tally 332 to 206. State officials say Obama won by roughly 74,000 votes out of about 8 million cast, a margin of 50% to 49.1%, reports AP. The win makes Obama 8-1 in the big swing states, with North Carolina his only loss.

In spite of Republicans trying to steal the election. People must keep voting every two yrs. Those rich folks with deep pockets will still try to take over the country. We need enough Democrats to overturn Citizens United. Only Democratic leaders will do that. This includes 2016. It's the only way for Americans to take back the country.

President Obama didn't lose North Carolina. North Carolina lost North Carolina.
