By my count, about 118,343,530 votes have been counted so far (95% of the precincts).
In 2004, 121,480,019 voted.
Am I missing something, or did Obama win despite NOT dramatically increasing turnout? And what about all those long lines??? Surely, I must have missed something…
UPDATE: Politico is reporting (and many other blogs are picking this up) that turnout is 130 million voters. But CNN lists 119 million votes having been cast. Still confused
