Awaiting final numbers to be confirmed. While the overall Presidential winner has been announced (Barack Obama), the state of Florida electoral votes have not yet been "officially" finalized according to the AP and CNN. As soon as that is complete, the winner of this contest will be announced!
Based on projections made today by CNN, I'm confident enough in the final tally to announce these results. While the President was decided and confirmed on election night, due to delays in Florida voting, it was not yet clear which candidate would win the electoral votes for that particular state.
Today, CNN and many other outlets confirmed that Florida is almost certainly decided for Barack Obama, which adds 29 electoral votes to the count, and concludes this contest. And now, without further ado, it's time to announce the results. Drumroll please...
We didn't have one person get the results EXACTLY accurate - we had FOUR members (yes, FOUR!) get the prediction exactly, 100% accurate. We verified all four posts with screenshots taken the night before the election, and none were edited or in any way manipulated after midnight. The final results: 332 Obama - 206 Romney. Our winners? Marens33, Leo Xia, Paulo, JordanBudi.
Incredible! Four predictions with 100% accuracy, out of nearly 400 predictions entered. All four winners will receive 1,000 Elite Member Points, while (per contest rules) only the first will receive the grand prize rare brick of playing cards: Marens33.
Congrats to all four winners, and to everyone that participated. We will definitely do this again in four years!
