President Barack Obama was declared the winner of Florida by Associated Press and NBC News, four days after the November 6 election, bringing his total of electoral votes to 332 compared to 206 for Republican challenger Mitt Romney, the Voice of Russia reported.
Florida was the last state where the outcome was in doubt because three counties were still counting ballots.
The Democratic party in Florida had declared victory on Thursday and Republicans tacitly conceded defeat.
With the victory in Florida, Obama swept all of the battleground states, with the exception of North Carolina, which he won narrowly in 2008.
The delay in finalizing Florida's result this year did not affect the national outcome but raised concerns that some of the problems in 2000 had not been resolved 12 years later.
