Election Results

Some interesting statistics from today's Morning Edition on NPR:
  • Obama won an overwhelming majority of black and hispanic voters
  • Obama won a majority of under 30 voters
  • Obama won a majority of voters who make under $50,000 a year in total income
  • Obama also won a majority of voters who make over $200,000 a year - yes, those people whose taxes are increasing.
Additionally, Colorado, New Mexico, Ohio, and other traditionally "red" states went true blue this election.

And, in the coup de grace of the election season, Colorado's Amendment 48 - the "personhood" amendment - has lost, with a compelling ~70% against the measure. Thank you, Colorado, for being reasonable. I love you more each day.
