    ok fox news said Obama won Ohio with a total of 2,256,785 compared to Romney's 2,259,173 votes.

    They also have Romney at 48,612,696 compared to Obama with 48,498,111 with of difference of 114,585.....how on earth is he winning?

    Now I am seeing Obama gains a few thousand every now and then but not a lot?

    Look at the numbers he can win but romney is still up!

    Obama hasn't won yet and I see numbers to prove this.....if a 20 year old can find this I shouldn't be the only one out there that is seeing this happen!

    You're looking at the popular vote not the electorial college vote that allocates points by how many votes a specific state has based on population of that state.
