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

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