From the Associated Press:

NEW YORK (AP) — President Barack Obama has won New York state to claim its 29 electoral votes.The defeat of Republican challenger Mitt Romney was expected in a heavily Democratic state that was not seriously contested by either candidate. Visits to the state by Romney and Obama largely consisted of fundraising trips to New York City.

New York has not voted for a Republican in a presidential election since Ronald Reagan in 1984. In 2008, Obama defeated John McCain in the state 62 percent to 37 percent.

The call for Obama was based on an analysis of interviews with voters as they left polling places across the state, conducted for The Associated Press by Edison Media Research.

New York state has 2.8 million registered Republicans, compared with 5.6 million registered Democrats.

    In the US we have OUR President Obama as proof that the US taxpaying, hard working, citizens do understand between 2 choices so different as we had on Nov 6.

    The results of Nov 6 are proof that the US citizens DO NOT WANT layers of billionaires, mostly hidden, and some of them not even US citizens from foreign power bases, buying our elections with horrible and blatantly false TV and radio ads.

    President Obama and the Democrats raised about $100 million from grassroots donations that averaged about $35 from people who struggle to feed their families, pay their bills and get to work each day all across the US. They are not hidden billionaires or casino owners who should heed the message on Nov 6 2012.

    We, the US citizens demand government by representatives who are honest, have good backgrounds with a history of actually working for good results FOR THE CITIZENS, and who will work with other political parties once elected to ACTUALLY DO THE WORK of the CITIZENS.

    We DO NOT want representatives who speak of COOPERATION but then secretly meet in the basement and vow to do everything to unseat the other party’s person.

    This is the overriding message that all parties need to understand !!
