Early Voting Results 2012: Election Results Favor Obama

Early voting results determine that so far 30 million votes have already been cast for the next president of the United States.

The results are based on ballot figures in 34 states and the District of Columbia.

The Democratic party dominate several key states including Iowa, Florida, Ohio, Nevada and North Carolina, according to Associated Press.

The party has helped the president lead with early votes by 16 percent in North Carolina, and 11 percent in Iowa.

However, the gap is closer in key state Ohio where Obama leads by 6 percent and only 3 percent in Florida.
David Axelrod, President Obama's campaign adviser told Associated Press he expects Obama to maintain these leads on Election Day on Tuesday, Nov.6.

Early voting results also revealed some unexpected turns for the president: Repulicans are leading in Colorado where the president won by almost 9 percent back in 2008.

And the gap has been closing in battleground states thanks to Republicans.

On Monday, Nov. 5, Colorado's Republican senator Rob Portman told CNBC that the majority of early votes, about 200,000, came from his party.

The early voting results does not include the independent voters both parties were hoping to have persuaded during this election. There are predictions that many may go against their registered party which would help close the gap in a tight election.

The lack of data for independent voters' early results leaves uncertainty in battleground states. Americans will learn at the end of election night who will be the next President of the United States.
