Obama Wins Nebraska Electoral Vote

Back in September the race in the electoral college looked close and there was a scenario where it could even come down to one vote. This led to consideration of picking up a single electoral vote in Nebraska, which is possible as electoral votes are distributed by Congressional district. I subsequently noted that Obama had opened a field office in Nebraska. This has paid off. For the first time ever Obama has picked up an electoral vote in a state which splits its votes. Both Nebraska and Maine do this, with Obama winning all of Maine and now picking up a single electoral vote in Nebraska.

Obama now leads John McCain in electoral votes 365 to 163. Missouri’s eleven electoral votes are still up in the air.
