US election results 2012: Barack Obama re-elected as President
CHICAGO, IL - Votes are still being counted, but several television networks have projected a win for President Obama over Mitt Romney. The win comes after a long and vicious battle - with both sides running all sorts of media campaigns against the other.
Google is also calling it for Obama. The search engine has done a pretty good job this election, showing their election results data on top of the search engine results pages when any election related term is typed in the little search box.

Obama took more than a dozen states, including Illinois, Vermont, Rhode Island and Maryland and the District of Columbia,
