What are your thoughts on these updated totals?
I had no idea there were so many other candidates running. When I voted, I only focused on the top 2 candidates. Obama seems to have won by 5 million votes. That seems like a lot, although the T.V. showed it to be a close race. I guess that when you consider the number of total votes, it was a close race. Roseanne Barr? Is that the Roseanne Barr from T.V.?
I am surprised to see so many other names on the list. I was only aware of maybe one or two of those people aside from Obama and Romney. I also am interested by some of the parties the other people are associated with. Some of them I have never heard of before. I will definitely be researching some of them in the future to see what they believe and stand for so I am a more informed voter.
