Good Luck.
Americans voted to re-elect incumbent president Barack Obama on Tuesday in one of closest contests in U.S. history. President Obama saw off challenge of Republican opponent Mitt Romney, who asked nation to pray for Mr Obama in his goal to re-ignite American economy. It was nail-biting finish to what was long, exhausting, bitter and expensive election campaign. Pre-election polls and TV stations said either man could have won presidency. It all depended on several swing states, winner of which would secure 270 electoral votes needed to guarantee victory. Once state of Ohio went to Democrats, Obama knew he had another four years in White House.

Many Americans felt relief that election has now been decided. They had to endure dozens of nightly advertisements in what was most expensive campaign in history. Most voters complained that ads were overly negative and simply attacked other side rather than outlining policy promises. Despite poor state of American economy, voters once again put their faith in Mr Obama. Many believe Obama won against all odds. Thomas L Friedman of New York Times wrote: "No one can know for sure what complex emotional chemistry tipped this election Obama's way…It came down to majority of Americans believing that…Obama was trying his hardest to fix what ails country."
