The latest tally of the November 6th election results show that President Obama is the first president since Dwight Eisenhower to get at least 51 percent of the national popular vote twice, when they were first elected and then re-elected, and the first Democrat to do so since Franklin Roosevelt. Obama’s national tally was boosted on December 31st, when New York submitted its final vote count, which added about 400,000 votes, most of them from provisional ballots in New York City that were counted late, in part because of complications caused by Superstorm Sandy.  Nationally, Obama won 51.1 percent of the vote to 47.2 percent for Mitt Romney, a four percentage point popular vote win.  In 2008, Obama won by seven percentage points over Senator John McCain, 52.9 percent to 45.7 percent.  (Bloomberg News)
