Fox News Projects: President Obama Wins California, Hawaii, and Washington; Mitt Romney Wins Idaho

Polls have now closed in another five states.

Fox News can project that President Obama will win:

-California, the biggest and most populous prize of the night, which carries with it a whopping 55 electoral votes.

-Hawaii, the state where Obama was born and raised, a reliably Democratic stronghold.

-Washington State, where a burgeoning Democratic population in and around Seattle overwhelms traditional Republican counties to the east.

On the Republican side, Fox News can now project that Mitt Romney will win the state of Idaho, along with its four electoral votes. A conservative state with a sizable Mormon population, Idaho was never contested by Democrats.
