At 12:18 a.m. local time today, CNN announced that Barack Obama had been re-elected president of the United States. It was CNN’s projection from exit polls, crowned by Obama’s capture of the battleground Ohio from Mitt Romney, but it was good enough for Democratic supporters at election headquarters in Chicago. The president all but claimed victory himself. “This happened because of you,” he tweeted to supporters. “Thank you!” Contrastingly, the mood at Romney’s headquarters was grim, supporters stunned that so many states had voted for Obama, and with Romney not readily prepared to concede defeat.
