President Barack Obama was declared the winner of Florida's 29 electoral votes Saturday, ending a four-day count with a razor-thin margin that narrowly avoided an automatic recount that would have brought back memories of 2000.I suppose there are different ways to define "landslide."Merriam-Webster says this:
No matter the outcome, Obama had already clinched re-election and now has 332 electoral votes to Romney's 206.
The win gave Obama victories in eight of the nine swing states, losing only North Carolina. In addition to Florida, he won Ohio, Iowa, New Hampshire, Wisconsin, Virginia, Colorado and Nevada.
a : a great majority of votes for one side
b : an overwhelming victory
A simpler way might be if Obama wins Florida and almost all the other swing states, that's a landslide. If this keeps up, I guess we'll have to reconsider who holds the crown this year.
Another way is to look at those electoral votes. The popular vote was a bit closer but not what some folks had hoped.
