I believe Dave Lieb's numbers will update soon.

Wiki is now showing the figures below, and I noticed they were very close to Lieb's numbers last week.

Note the approximate spread of only 264,000 votes 2012 vs 2008 for McCain.

Romney may yet pull ahead.  That's not to state he shouldn't have gotten more due to population increase.

Obama still lost far more votes, and his numbers should have increased too.




Repub Obama
2008 59,948,240 69,498,215
2012 59,684,096 63,561,092
Vote Loss
0.44062% 8.54284%

Sorry.

Should have read, “Dave Leip’s”, not “Dave Lieb’s”.

There will end up being a significant real turnout decline in New York and New Jersey.

It’s obvious Romney’s total will end up beating McCain, but I think Romney’s numbers will end up betting McCain even with the increase in voting age population from 2008 to 2012 taken into account.

The Wiki page appears pretty accurate and actually is more updated than my own spreadsheet - I’m going to make another pass through mine tonight. Romney should pull ahead of McCain by Thanksgiving, for sure, I would think, unless the California vote count really slows.

One thing that stinks is the New York SoS maintains no running vote count and they don’t have a certification date until well into December.
