Days after the election, we finally have a winner in the battleground state of Florida. On Saturday, President Obama was declared the winner of the state’s 29 electoral votes. MSNBC has more.

“The state did tilt to Obama. He got 50% of the vote. Romney took 49.1% of the vote. About a 74,000 vote difference between the two.”

With Florida’s electoral votes now distributed, President Obama came out of the election with nearly a full sweep of the battleground states. WTVJ writes:

“A win in Florida gives Obama victories in eight of the nine swing states, losing only North Carolina. He won Ohio, Iowa, New Hampshire, Wisconsin, Virginia, Colorado and Nevada.”

Much of the President’s success in Florida is tied to the voting power from young and minority voters. The Washington Post notes:

“Obama was favored by more than 9 of 10 black voters and 3 of 5 Hispanic voters in Florida. The president also was the choice of two-thirds of voters under age 30.”

With the minority vote becoming more influential, The Wall Street Journal says the question now is...
“...whether Mr. Obama and other members of his party can solidify this coalition into a foundation of the Democratic Party.”
