With more votes being counted, Florida has just been confirmed for the President and he has now surpassed Bush 2004 in the gap between himself and the challenger in the popular vote. Just another note to those who were trying to downplay the President's victory and portray it as a 'squeaker' or 'really close' etc;
1) In the popular vote, the President's final share - which looks like it will be about 50.9% when all votes are counted - will be the highest won by an incumbent President seeking re-election in twenty-eight years. (Since 1984) It is also on track to be the largest number of votes won by an incumbent President seeking re-election in history. (Largely due to population growth)
2) The President joins FDR, Eisenhower and Reagan as the only Presidents in the last hundred years to be elected President twice with a majority of the popular vote- and the sixth president ever. (For the curious, the first three were Jackson, Grant and McKinley, although no popular vote tallies are available for the first few)
3) The uniform national swing from 2008 to 2012 in the Presidential Election was about 4%- he won by about 7% in 2008 and about 3% in 2012. If Republicans had doubled this swing and made it 8% across the board, the President would have lost the popular vote by 1%.... and still narrowly won re-election with Colorado, Nevada, Iowa, New Hampshire and Wisconsin all going to him and putting him over 270. In other words, the Republicans were less than halfway to actually beating the President.
4) The President was closer to winning Georgia than Romney was to winning Michigan and Minnesota, which some Republicans including top commentators were claiming he had a shot in... and nearly as close to winning Georgia as Romney was to winning supposed 'swing state' and Paul Ryan home state Wisconsin.
So... close? Not particularly in the end, no.
