It all came down to this.

Could Democratic President Barack Obama pull it out and earn another four years in the White House? Or would Republican Mitt Romney be the next Commander-in-Chief?

The 2012 presidential election results took awhile to come into focus, but shortly after 11:00 p.m., the President surpassed the 270 electoral votes needed to win.

We'll be updating this post with the full numbers as they come in. For now, and throughout the night, sound off on how you feel about this historic night ...

In 2000, Al Gore earned 500,000 more votes than George W. Bush, yet lost the presidency.

In 2004, Bush won by 3 million, but 60,000 more Ohio votes would've elected John Kerry.

In 2012, a close election could easily result in a winner who receives fewer votes ... again.

The Electoral College system, everybody!

Libertarian Party presidential candidate Gary Johnson says he thinks President Barack Obama will defeat Mitt Romney to win a second term this evening.

“I think Obama’s going to win, that’s what I think,” Johnson said.

As for his own support, the former New Mexico Governor said: “[My vote is] really spread out ... I don’t think there’s any state I’m going to do better in than another.”

Johnson, who’s on the ballot in 48 states and D.C., hovers in the low single digits in the polls. Still, he says he has no regrets at how things played out.

The 2012 presidential election is tomorrow, but plenty of states have early voting. At least 30 million people in 34 states have already cast ballots by mail or in person.

Obama and Mitt

That's a huge percentage of the overall popular vote - about 130 million citizens cast ballots in 2008, when Barack Obama defeated John McCain.

Four years ago, Obama's good fortune was foreshadowed by a surge in Democrats voting early. He's banking on the same enthusiasm in 2012. Will he get it?

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is hammering President Obama for a recent campaign speech in which he told the crowd, "voting is the best revenge."

Obama's comment was part a familiar stump speech riff; if audience members boo Romney's name, the president habitually says, "no no, don't boo - vote!"

In Springfield, Ohio, he said just that, adding, "Voting is the best revenge."

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney likened Hurricane Sandy cleanup efforts to cleaning up the field after a high school football game ... seriously.

President Barack Obama visited the New Jersey shore on Wednesday with Governor Chris Christie to get an up-close look at storm-damaged coastline.

Meanwhile, Romney was doing his part in Kettering, Ohio, at a campaign rally-turned disaster-relief event. That's when Mitt offered this personal anecdote:

With polls tight around the nation, and with the election mere days away, Mitt Romney can take comfort in the new endorsement of a beloved billionaire.

No, not Donald Trump.

C. Montgomery Burns!

The power plant mogul has released a new campaign ad in which he explains that he isn't concerned about the “47 percent” tape or “the tax returns that Wesley Snipe would call suspicious." What single Romney-related topic does give Burns pause?

And how will he solve it for the voters? Watch now:

Clear eyes, full hearts... can't use?

Over the past few weeks, Mitt Romney has been including a line in his stump speech that originated on NBC's Friday Night Lights, echoing fictional Coach Eric Taylor when telling attendees:

Clear eyes, full hearts, can't lose!

But Connie Britton, who starred on that beloved drama and now anchors Nashville, takes issue with the candidate's ganking of the catchphrase.

In a couple new campaign ads, a pair of celebrities talk about what they know.

For Lena Dunham, that's sex.

For beloved comic book guru and The Avengers writer/director Joss Whedon, that's the Zombie Apocalypse.

In an amazing new campaign ad, Whedon calmly warns of how a Mitt Romney administration will lead to "guaranteed poverty, unemployment and overpopulation," all "crucial elements in creating an ideal zombie wasteland."

Seriously, people, Whedon pleas, let's "stop pretending we care about each other and start hoarding canned goods..."

It's official: Mitt Romney no longer sings the world's worst version of "America the Beautiful."

A few months after this candidate embarrassed himself with a rendition of that patriotic track, Meat Loaf took the stage at a campaign event in Ohio alongside Romney, John Rich and Randy Owens and free-styled about halfway through the song.

The result? A total trainwreck, and a mortified Mitt Romney.

Note to Mr. Loaf: Listen to Lea Michele. That is how you sing "America the Beautiful."
