The US elections

The U.S. elections are now over and Mr. Obama is the new president. The world expects a lot from this man and he knows it. The future lies with him.

As usual, some traditional states didn’t change as, in general, the southern states tend to vote republican and the northern states vote democrat. This time, Obama’s remarkable campaign manage to convince key states that not being traditionally democrat voted for for him and the project of his administration

Have a look at the map and play with it if you want to know more about the results.

Good Luck making the world a better place.


Edit: Re-phrased two sentences to reduce confusion on my words

    “The world expects a lot from this man and he knows it. The future lies with him.”
    Well, aren’t these sentences uninformative and sensationalist! You might have just become a top-notch pundit.

    “As usual, the map didn’t change much..” I’m glad that NM, Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Indiana, Ohio, Virginia and NC don’t mean much.

    “… as the southern states will always vote republican and the northern states vote democrat.” You’d be right if we just ignored the 1916 1920 1924 1928 1932 1936 1940 1944 1948 1952 1956 1960 1964 1968 1972 1976 1980 1984 1988 and 1996 elections.

    Thank you for your comment.

    The first sentence you commented I don’t take them as sensationalist and uninformative, for the good or bad the near future and the major decisions in the U.S will be taken by this man and his administration. Thousands of Americans expect that decisions taken will bring the economy up.

    Regarding your second comment, I don’t mean to be disrespectful to anyone, and I’m sorry if someone got offended by my words. In fact, those mentioned states indeed were crucial and helped deciding the fate of this election.

    Regarding the third comment, I’m sorry if I was inaccurate and I’ll correct the post. What I mean is, there are states that, by tradition will vote virtually ‘always’ for a party and not for the person or the project presented by the candidate.

    Best regards,
