Now that the winners and losers have been declared in the 2012 elections (well, mostly), the Sunday television talk shows analyze President Obama's re-election and Republicans' worse-than-expected results. Also up for discussion is what it will take to get the White House and Congress to reach a deal to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff, the potentially devastating automatic spending cuts and tax increases that are to go into force early next year.

David Axelrod, a top adviser to President Obama's re-election campaign, appears on CBS's “Face the Nation,” followed by Senator Lindsey Graham, Republican of South Carolina.

NBC's “Meet the Press” has Senators Charles E. Schumer, Democrat of New York, and Tom Coburn, Republican of Oklahoma. Repr esentative-elect Joaquin Castro, Democrat of Texas, is also a guest.

Senators Saxby Chambliss, Republican of Georgia, and Patty Murray, Democrat of Washington, stop by ABC's “This Week.” Representatives Aaron Schock, Republican of Illinois, and Donna Edwards, Democrat of Maryland, participate in the show's round table.

“Fox News Sunday,” will have three Senators-Kent Conrad, Democrat of North Dakota; Bob Corker, Republican of Tennessee; and Dianne Feinstein, Democrat of California. Representatives Chris Van Hollen, Democrat of Maryland, and Tom Price, Republican of Georgia, are also guests.

CNN's “State of the Union” lineup includes Gov. Jerry Brown, Democrat of California. Also on the program is former Ambassador Jon Huntsman, a former Republican governor of Utah who was a 2012 presidential candidate. Other guests include Carlos Gutierrez, a former commerce secretary, and Gary Bauer, president of American Values, a conservative social policy or ganization.

Grover Norquist, the president of Americans for Tax Reform, a conservative tax-policy research group, appears on C-Span's “Newsmakers.”

Univision's “Al Punto” has Mr. Gutierrez, who was a trade policy adviser to Mitt Romney's presidential campaign, and Henry Cisneros, a former federal housing secretary. Four congressmen-elect, all Latino Democrats, will also appear on the show: Joe Garcia of Florida, Raul Ruiz of California, and Pete Gallego and Filemon Vela of Texas.

On TVOne's “Washington Watch,” guests include Ben Jealous, the president and chief executive of the N.A.A.C.P., and Melanie L. Campbell, the president and chief executive of the National Coalition on Black Civic Participation. Also making appearances are Gary L. Flowers, the chief executive of the Black Leadership Forum, and Cornell Belcher, an Obama campaign pollster.
