All major networks have projected Barack Obama the winner in Ohio. All major networks are also projecting an Obama victory in the election as the incumbent president has theoretically acquired the 270 electoral votes needed to win four more years in the White House.

However, former Bush senior advisor Karl Rove tells Fox News that he doesn't think the election is over quite yet, saying many Republican counties have not been counted yet in Ohio. It's not that Obama won't win the election, Rove explained, it is just "premature" to call it for Obama so soon.

Fox News also reports that the Romney campaign has not indicated the GOP presidential candidate will concede just yet. Fox News has more on the likely Obama win:

 

MSNBC's Chris Matthews said President Obama and other Democrats were able to win re-election in a tough economy with unemployment at around 8 percent because of "this terrible ethnic stuff"being thrown around by conservatives.

"I think the history books will show that President Obama and his team ran a flawless campaign," MSNBC host Ed Schultz said, reacting to the projected win. "He stuck with the middle class theme and ran on his record."
