george stephanopoulos. >> and finally it is here. we're here in times square for election night 2012 at the abc news election headquarters. great to have you with us. all day long we've been watching grandmothers, first-time voters, rich people, poor people, blue collar workers, all the people who believe in america going to the polls, every state of our union today joining together at the ballot boxes, and we will be bringing you the results. we are here to tell you who won, why throughout this evening and what's next. it's your voice as we've been saying and your vote tonight. >> diane, it has been a long, bitter and expensive race. deadlocked most of the way and revealed an america divided in so many ways. tonight, all of you are going to tip the balance. >> and now we are ready to begin because we have three projections to make because the polls have closed in six states and we are ready to go. here it is. indiana, this state has switched, president obama won it four years ago, governor romney has won it this time. it is not a surprise, though. we were expecting governor romney to t

george. >> a lot of people. to ron brownstein right now. there's going to be so much we learn about the country coming out of this election and the party. one fact i want to throw at you as you reflect on this victory for president obama. the last six presidential elections democrats have won the popular vote in five out of the last six. >> just as republicans did from '68 to '88 in the era we talked about the lock on the electoral college. they consistently won behind the collision, groups that are themselves growing this society, minorities, young people, millennial generation and college educated white women to win 47% of them down from 2008 but, again, socially liberal women and a collision that continues to grow inside and allows democrats to overcome in some cases very weak performances among other whites. look at those, florida and virginia where he's right in there punching till the very end winning under 40 -- well under 40% of white voters and still in a position to compete for them and just enough of those white working class voters in the midwest. >> as cokie roberts and jon

. >> i think we should take a minute as george said to reflect on this story. i mean this is remarkable american story. and what he, what rerepresents personally but also the changing america that has put him in this place. i think that that's why people get so excited about it because they recognize themselves in him in a way they never recognized themselves in any leader before because it was never there before. now his tweet, we are all in this together is something he really needs to deliver on because we have to come out of this election being much more unified than the way we've gone into the election. >> there's another reason why this is historic in addition to the obvious one, this is a president who had running for re-election with with high unemployment, a low approval rating for much of this year, and a majority of the people here thought the country is going in the wrong track. by any measure, you would have thought he was heading for defeat and he won. we have never seen it happen on any of those marks to be that low wing re-election in the modern era. . >> as w
