Palm Beach County, which lagged behind the 66 others, has finally finished counting its absentee ballots and it only helped President Obama.

Obama picked up a net 6,910 more votes over Republican Mitt Romney. That helped increase Obama’s overall lead in Florida to 73,694. That’s an increase of mroe than 15,600 since Thursday, when The Herald first reported Obama had little chance of losing and that a Romney adviser acknowledged the Republican loss.

Obama’s lead now stands at 50.01 percent (4,234,522 votes) to Romney’s 49.13 (4,160,828 votes). The results are due now at the Secretary of State’s office.

 

With all 67 counties in, Obama still the Florida winner, now ahead by more: 73k votes
