| With just about all the votes tallied, all the campaign of 2012 did compared to 2008 was shift a couple percentage points away from Barack Obama and give them to the GOP nominee. The final popular vote margin was about four million votes in an election with lower voter interest than four years before.|
Despite all the talk of "battleground states" the only Electoral College changes were the flipping of Indiana and North Carolina along with Nebraska's Second Congressional District.
Lot of work, money and chatter for essentially the same results minus the extra couple points Obama got in '08 for hope and change.
