CNN has made the call. Barack Obama is projected to defeat Mitt Romney in the 2012 United States Presidential Election, much to the equal delight and disdain of many Americans.

Sonnen ran as a candidate for the 37th district of the Oregon House of Representatives in 2010, prior to being charged for money laundering and mortgage fraud.
