President Barack Obama’s re-election bucks a trend. Not many Western leaders have gone to the electorate and survived when their economies are in recession. Yet, he succeeded despite America's weak economy and high unemployment. 7.9% to be precise.
He just by the slenders of margins won the popular vote. It is very much a nation split in half.
Although last night gave him a few more Democratic senators to ease his burden, his task is still immense.
