With 98% of polling locations reporting, the President (and former Park Slope resident, apparently) garnered 81% of the vote around these parts, winning 503,291 votes to Mitt Romney's 108,630.
But how did we get to such staggering numbers? Are we so far removed from the notion of "personal responsibility?" Do hours-long lines do nothing to deter? Are we as a borough beholden to do whatever Jay-Z dictates? Am I deliriously tired from staying up to watch the actual speeches 3 hours after the election was officially called last night? Whatever, this is obviously as predictable as it is great. Good work everybody, go back about your business (and maybe take a nap).
