CLOSELY CONTESTED

Obama wins N.H.; Hassan elected governor

MANCHESTER, N.H. — President Obama won New Hampshire handily Tuesday night, delivering the coveted four electoral votes of this swing state to his column.

Obama was ahead, 52 percent to Romney’s 47 percent, with 91 percent of polls reporting on Wednesday morning — a spread that was 5 percentage points shy of Obama’s win in 2008, when he took the state by nearly 10 percentage points. The swing state victory helped deliver Obama a convincing reelection win Tuesday night.
