Obama Wins Second Term in White House
The incumbent president has captured at least 275 electoral votes - more than the majority of 270 required for victory in Tuesday's quadrennial election.
Obama won a string of key states, including Ohio, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Iowa and New Hampshire, meaning that the win was all but guaranteed, though the vote-counting was far from complete.
After competing in his traditional Election Day basketball game, Obama had implored his supporters to vote in the final hours before polls closed in many states.
