Polls conducted before Tuesday’s election showed Democrat Barack Obama with a lead of 40 points or more over Republican Alan Keyes.

Obama preached cooperation and drew national attention when he delivered the keynote address at the Democratic National Convention.

Keyes is a commentator and former presidential candidate from Maryland. He got into the race after Republican nominee Jack Ryan pulled out when sexual allegations were unearthed from his divorce files.

Keyes has also gained headlines as he's focused his campaign on morality, arguing that abortion and homosexuality threaten the country.
