Barack did amazingly well, overall. I quote from the Daily Telegraph website:
"The first black president-elect won with 63.25 million votes, more than the total of any other presidential candidate in history.
He also netted a higher percentage of the overall vote than any Democrat since Lyndon Johnson in 1964."
Percentage-wise, Obama beat McCain 53 to 47.
