Well, not totally final, but close enough...

It's very interesting to note that RealClearPolitics was very accurate in predicting this election.

Though I disputed some of their poll formulas (the Pew poll had Obama by about 15, which was ridiculous), their number seems to be very close. Towards the end they were showing Obama up by about 7%-6%, which is about where the tally stands. Also, their electoral map was pretty much dead accurate.

They take many national polls and state polls, and average them, then show that result and apply it to an electoral map. Very helpful. I created this custom map below to reflect the final results:
