Obama First Since Eisenhower to Win 51% of Vote Twice

A revised vote count eight weeks after the presidential election finds President Obama nationally won 65.9 million votes -- or 51.1% of the vote -- against challenger Mitt Romney, who took 60.9 million votes and 47.2% of the total, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.

Obama is the first president to achieve that level of support in two elections since President Dwight D. Eisenhower was re-elected in 1956.
