Democrat Barack Obama has won a second term as President of the United States of America after defeating Republican opponent Mitt Romney.
Final polling results: Obama, 303, and Romney, 206.
According to CNN projections, Obama surpassed the decisive 270-vote threshold in the Electoral College with victory in Ohio. That and a later projected victory in another swing state — Virginia — gave him 303 electoral votes to 206 for Romney, according to the CNN call based on unofficial returns.
