Networks project re-election for Obama

Posted: Updated:


Barack Obama will be re-elected as president of the United States, CNN projects.

He will win the critical swing state of Ohio, putting him over the 270 electoral votes needed to secure the White House, according to the network.

Mitt Romney took an early lead over Obama with more than half the races decided Tuesday, but the Republican challenger lost both his home and birth states and was trailing in key battleground states, according to CNN projections.

All races called so far went as expected after the roller-coaster ride of an election campaign that was buffeted by a superstorm and missteps on both sides.

Meanwhile, CNN projected that Republicans would retain their majority in the U.S. House, raising the prospect of another divided Congress with analysts expecting Democrats to hold onto their narrow control of the Senate.
