44 Victorious: President Obama's Reelection Was All About History.... Many Firsts

When President Obama won reelection, Tuesday night, he added to his legacy of firsts.  Check out a short list below.

  1. First Democrat since FDR to win the White House with 50% of the popular vote  --both his terms.
  2. First to ever win both the home states of his challengers.  The POTUS won both Romney and Ryan's home states of Massachusetts (Rom) and Wisconsin (Ryn).  Romney was dealt a double whammy also losing Michigan (birth state) and New Hampshire (vacation destination).
  3. First Democrat to get over 71% of the Hispanic vote

The Republican Party has lost the popular vote in the last 5 of 6 Presidential Elections.  And they haven't won as many electoral votes as the President has in 24 years!!!!


Now Florida, hurry up!!!
