Earlier, news networks projected that President Barack Obama will win New Hampshire. Although New Hampshire's four electoral votes are unlikely to decide the election, a New Hampshire victory could tie a close race between the president and Republican contender Mitt Romney, according to CBS News.

Obama won New Hampshire in 2008 by a margin of 9.6 percent. Networks are also projecting that Obama will win other important battleground states, including Pennsylvania and Ohio.
