After all the hype, the US presidential elections did not look so close in the Electoral College which ended up as 332 to Obama and 206 to Romney. However, when looking at the popular vote it was much closer: 50.6% to Obama and 47.9% to Romney.
But why did Obama win in the end? Was it Obama's campaign that was more sophisticated? Was it Romney who just failed to gel with the voters? Were people nervous of changing horses mid-race during the economic recession?
What do you think?
