The Unofficial Final Results, and Suggested Slogans for the Runoff

And the final breakdown is: Morsi 24.9%, Shafiq 24.5%, Sabahi 21.1% (he carried Cairo), then Abu'l-Futuh and Moussa.

A useful spreadsheet of the results is here. Put together by Iyad al-Baghdadi and others.

And here are my suggested slogans for the candidates:

Morsi: "Of course we believe in one man, one vote, The Supreme Guide is the man, and he has the vote."

Shafiq: "After 30 years under a corrupt ex-Air Force general, what Egypt needs is a corrupt ex-Air Force general. 30 More Years!"
