Nebraska does the splits

Nebraska is one of two states to allocate its presidential electoral votes to the winner of each congressional district, plus two to the statewide winner. The other is Maine. In the years since these states went to this districted system, no split had resulted. ((It was very close in Maine in 1992, where Ross Perot narrowly missed winning one district.)) Till now. Barack Obama has won the electoral vote allocated for the district centered on Omaha. That gives him 365. ((Pending the remaining possibility that he could overtake John McCain’s current narrow lead in Missouri, which has 11 electoral votes.))
