Vigo County, Indiana, has correctly reflected the winner of the presidency in every election since 1956, as in 2008 when Barack Obama won the county with 57 percent support and in 2004 when George W. Bush won the county with 53 percent support.

With 99 percent of precincts reporting, Vigo County remains very close, with 49.3 percent for Obama and 48.8 percent for Mitt Romney. That means Obama is running 8 points behind where he ran in 2008.
