Mississippi Election Results 2012 MAP: Presidential And Senate Winners (REAL-TIME MAP)

In the graphic below you'll find the 2012 presidential election results for the state of Mississippi.

Like many of its southern neighbors, Mississippi makes up part of an undeniably red southern voting block. Along with neighboring Alabama and Louisiana, the state has been considered a shoe-in for Romney, with little-to-no chance of a Democratic swing, according to polls leading up to Election Day.

Though in 2008 districts on the western side of the state showed support for President Barack Obama, GOP candidate John McCain walked away with an easy six electoral votes and over 56 percent of the overall ballots.

Mississippi also had a Senate seat and a few House seats on the ballot this Election Day, but none were expected to shift the balance of power in Congress. Republican Sen. Roger Wicker was expected to handily hold on to his seat despite the challenge of Democrat Albert Gore (not the former vice president).
