The cover of the Nov. 7 edition of the York Dispatch marks President Obama’s historic re-election.
U.S. President Barack Obama was re-elected yesterday for a second term in the White House, meaning that he, his wife Michelle, and children Sasha and Malia get to stay in Washington, D.C. for another four years.
The president earned 303 Electoral College votes, beating his challenger Mitt Romney, who was able to score 206. Another 29 Electoral College votes will be awarded when Florida determines its winner, but Obama already has enough to claim the win.
As the vote totals stand now, the President got 59,721,271 individual votes to Romney’s 57,095,396.
Some of the top issues of the campaign were the status of the President’s health-care plan, the economy, taxes and the War in Afghanistan.
In acknowledging Obama’s win, Romney urged his supporters to work with the president, saying: “This is a time of great challenges for America, and I pray that the president will be successful in guiding our nation. … Our leaders have to work across the aisle to do the people’s work”
Obama repeated his campaign slogan of moving “forward” repeatedly in a victory speech early Wednesday in his hometown of Chicago.
“We will disagree, sometimes fiercely, about how to get there,” he said. “As it has for more than two centuries, progress will come in fits and starts. It’s not always a straight line. It’s not always a smooth path. By itself, the recognition that we have common hopes and dreams won’t end all the gridlock, or solve all our problems, or substitute for the painstaking work of building consensus, and making the difficult compromises needed to move this country forward. But that common bond is where we must begin.”
The Electoral College is a strange way to resolve an election, and only the United States uses such a system. You can learn more about it in this video. http://youtu.be/OUS9mM8Xbbw
