US Presidential Election: Vote Counting Has Started

Obama got Vermont, Romney got Kentucky, West Virginia, according to AP:

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney captured Kentucky and West Virginia and President Barack Obama countered with Vermont on Tuesday night in a duel for the White House shadowed by a weak economy and high unemployment that crimped middle class dreams for millions.

In the popular vote, Romney led 51 percent to 48 percent with less than 1 percent of the nation's precincts tallied.

Japan's Nikkei says Romney got Indiana. The Japanese media's coverage of the US election has been pretty much in line with that of the US mainstream media such as New York Times and Washington Post.

Fox News's tally is right now 78 Obama, 82 Romney. It doesn't seem to be a big surprise so far. Romney leads in popular vote.

The magic number is 270.

Go Obama! cheer the Japanese net citizens.
