    By BRIAN MONTOPOLI / CBS NEWS/ November 6, 2012, 9:00 PM

    The polls have just closed in Wisconsin, which CBS News is reporting leans toward President Obama. The exit poll shows that he has union households to thank: While the candidates are split among non-union households, Mr. Obama has a 66 percent to 33 percent lead among the one in five voters who say someone in their household belongs to a labor union.

    Obama looks to carry New Mexico a 2nd time
    Associated Press
    Posted on November 6, 2012 at 5:02 PM

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — New Mexico voters are deciding the fate of the state’s five electoral votes for the presidency along with an open Senate seat on Election Day. New Mexico has gone back and forth for the past three presidential cycles, and had been considered a battleground early on. But polls this summer and fall consistently showed President Barack Obama with a solid lead over GOP nominee Mitt Romney. The Republican National Committee in September pulled key staffers and sent them to more competitive states.

    Obama wins New Hampshire, 4 electoral votes
    By HOLLY RAMER
    Associated Press / November 6, 2012

    CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — President Barack Obama won New Hampshire for a second time Tuesday, defeating Mitt Romney in the Republican’s political backyard. Though the Democratic incumbent carried the state four years ago, New Hampshire was a battleground this time, with much competition for its meager four electoral votes. Obama campaigned heavily in the state, visiting four times since Labor Day alone, and built up a strong organization that included more than twice the number of campaign offices as Romney had.
