    For those closely watching the electoral college’s movement this year, Oklahoma has never moved from the deepest of red colors.  And, today’s presidential race results will firmly keep it there.

Figures from the newly released Oklahoma Poll, conducted by SoonerPoll, have the president losing badly to Republican Mitt Romney in the 2012 presidential race.
