Numbers (We Got 'Em!)

Barack Obama won 28 states (excluding DC) during the 2008 Presidential election and lost the other 22 (including Nebraska, which splits its electoral votes by congressional district and which primarily went to John McCain).

Of those 22 states, Democrats hold 13 Senate seats:

1 in Alaska
2 in Montana
2 in North Dakota
1 in South Dakota
1 in Nebraska
1 in Missouri
2 in Arkansas
1 in Louisiana
2 in West Virginia

Of the states that Obama won, Republicans now hold 8 Senate seats:

1 in Nevada
1 in Iowa
1 in Indiana
1 in Ohio
1 in Florida
1 in North Carolina
1 in New Hampshire
1 in Massachusetts

Do with this what you will.
