Exit polling shows that 59% of white voters favored Mitt Romney in the presidential election, but President Barack Obama was able to claim the election with strong support among women, young people and minorities. Fifty-five percent of women voted for Obama, and he also received the support of 71% of Hispanics and 73% of Asians. White voters accounted for a smaller percentage of the electorate than they did four years ago, and Hispanics accounted for a greater share than they did in 2008.
