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

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