Election Day 2012 also saw Romney won all the states McCain won with the addition of Indiana and North Carolina. The two before mentioned states offer 11 and 15 Electoral votes, respectively, and although it doesn't equal to 33, due note several states lost and gained votes due to redistricting based on the latest census.

Romney also received better numbers than McCain in Arkansas, Georgia, Idaho, Kansas, Kentucky, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Oklahoma, North Dakota, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, West Virginia, Wyoming, and even McCain's state of Arizona.
