Go to the link and try to answer the following questions. 

The VOTE MAP: http://edition.cnn.com/election/2012/results/race/president

1. Look at the map and see how many popular votes went to Obama and Romney repsectively?

And their percentage?  And what about the electoral votes they got respectively?

2.  Click on any one of the red- and blue-colored state to see the popular votes going for each candidate and note them down in your response. And how many electoral votes each got from the winning state?

3. Look at the exit polls and see what we learn about the voter’s voting preference based on their background such as gender, age, income, areas of living, religion, or race.  Please pick up two exit polls for your analysis and make a brief description of  them in response.
