Election 2012: A View of Nebraska

*Every day, AllMediaNY will be taking a close look at one of the 50 states, examining what could be expected from each come this fall’s presidential election between presumptive GOP candidate Mitt Romney and incumbent President Barack Obama.

Capital: Lincoln

Population: 1,842,641 (2011 estimate, 38th in the U.S.)

Allotted Electoral Votes: 5

Governor: Dave Heineman (R)

U.S. Senators: Ben Nelson (D), Mike Johanns (R) 

U.S. House Delegation: Three Republicans

Result in 2008 Election: Republican (John McCain) - 4 electoral votes, Democrat (Barack Obama) - 1

More Information: Deeply entrenched in the country's Great Plains region, Nebraska is at the heart of the Midwest. Completely landlocked, the state does see the Missouri River cut through it to its largest city, Omaha. The eighth least populous state in the country, Nebraska has seen the number of citizens steadily decline over the past few decades.

Hot Topics:  Agriculture, Oil, Energy, Unemployment, Obamacare, Taxes, Gun Control

Key Districts: 2nd Congressional, Omaha

Predicted Result: Like Maine, Nebraska does not follow the “all-or-nothing” electoral model, meaning that different districts are awarded separate votes and the number could be split between the candidates, as it was in 2008 when Obama won Omaha. Still, the Cornhusker State is as red as they come, having voted Republican on the whole for every one of the last 10 elections. The amount of electoral votes for Nebraska will remain at a meager five, just two above the state minimum, due to the decline its rural population. This will be one of many small-electoral states that can be chalked up as a win for the former Massachusetts governor.

The Pick: Republican (Mitt Romney)

Previous States: Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, D.C., Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana
