The first 2012 election results are inPolitics

From Dixville Notch, New Hampshire, which has the distinction of casting the nation’s first election day ballots:

Obama — 5

Romney — 5

As Mark Steyn notes:

Obama’s vote has fallen by two-thirds. Alternatively, Romney is doing worse than McCain – and turnout is way down.

(On that last point, I gather it’s actually because the two biggest families in town moved out. Still…)

Mr. Obama beat John McCain in the Dixville vote 15-6 in 2008.
