Compared to other networks, CNN had probably the best coverage of the last election night. The reason? Facts and statistics that clearly and early showed how President Obama was wining the different states, county by county. It’s very likely that Gov. Romney’s team of analysts were watching CNN when still crunching the numbers and delaying any concession speech.

A Video is worth a thousand of thousandth words and here is two of them where before the election John King breaks down the counties vote. The same drill occured during the elections night when John King confirmed CNN’s prediction by analyzing Florida and Virginia county by county.

CNN’s John King breaks down the counties in Virginia, Ohio and Colorado that will be critical on Election Day.

The second video is more strategic, explaining why the country demographics were a decisive factor in team’s Obama victory. Next elections in 2016 will definitely accentuate these tendencies and both parties will have to adjust to the new US realities.

CNN’s John King breaks down the nationwide election results by race, gender, and age.

In Memoriam; $1.6 billions were spent by the two candidates during the campaign.
