Bush wins mathematically, as White House Chief of Staff Andrew Card stated:

    White House Chief of Staff Andrew Card, in a pre-dawn appearance before Bush supporters at a planned victory rally, said Bush had compiled a “statistically insurmountable” lead in Ohio and had won a majority of the popular vote.

    “We are convinced that President Bush has won re-election,” Card said, adding Bush would make a statement later on Wednesday.
