President Obama Trounces Romney, Wins Second Term
Barack Obama, the candidate of hope who became the first black U.S. president, won re-election today by overcoming four years of economic discontent. Obama defeated Republican Mitt Romney, according to television network projections that showed the president winning the electoral votes needed for re-election. Late Thursday, the Romney campaign had no choice but to concede Florida to President.Obama. Putting Florida in Obama’s column brought the president’s final Electoral College vote total to 332 versus Romney’s 206.
Beginning more than a year ago, Obama championed middle-class opportunity against an opposition party more determined to protect preferences for the wealthy. Throughout a volatile Republican nominating contest, Obama’s political team never wavered from the view that its eventual opponent would be Romney, a former private equity executive, whom they portrayed as an out-of-touch embodiment of moneyed privilege and heartless capitalism.
