2010 Election Tops Obama’s Presidential Win in Online Traffic (Adam Ostrow, 11/02/10, Mashable)

It will still be at least a few hours before we know all of the results of today’s mid-term elections in the United States, but interest in the proceedings is apparently so high that a long-standing (in Internet time) Web traffic record has already been broken.

According to Akamai’s Net Usage Index for News, traffic to 100 top news sites (powered by Akamai’s content delivery network) has already peaked at a higher level than Barack Obama’s 2008 Presidential election victory – 4.6 million to 4.2 million page views per minute, respectively.
