The 2012 United States presidential election in Georgia took place on November 6, 2012, as part of the 2012 General Election in which all 50 states plus the District of Columbia participated. Georgia voters chose 16 electors to represent them in the Electoral College via a popular vote pitting incumbent Democratic President Barack Obama and his running mate, Vice President Joe Biden, against Republican challenger and former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney and his running mate, Congressman Paul Ryan.

Romney won Georgia by a 7.82% margin, an improvement from 2008 when McCain won by 5.2%. Romney received 53.30% of the vote to Obama's 45.48%. Obama is the first (and so far only) Democrat to win two terms without winning Georgia either time. Early County flipped from supporting the Republican candidate to the Democratic candidate, while Chattahoochee flipped from Democratic to Republican.

As of 2020, this is the last time that Cobb, Gwinnett, and Henry counties voted for the Republican candidate in a presidential election. All three counties are massive counties in the Atlanta metropolitan area that were historically Republican bastions but have been instrumental in Democratic gains in the Peach State with an increasing African American population and "suburban revolt" amongst white suburban voters. This is also the last time a Democratic presidential nominee won the rural Black Belt counties of Baker, Dooly, Early, Peach, Quitman and Twiggs, along with the most recent presidential election when Georgia backed the losing candidate nationwide.

This was the first election since 1980 in which Georgia voted to the left of Missouri.

Democratic primary

Incumbent president Barack Obama was unopposed in the Georgia primary, therefore winning all of the state's delegates.
