I thought this was more interesting: http://edition.cnn.com/2012/11/07/po...ico/index.html

I mean, the actual election result was very predictable. Obama was far more popular than Carter or Bush - you have to really fuck up in the eyes of voters to not get re-elected. Romney was never going to win.


As for the economic issues: I very much doubt that a talented leader who could 'fix' the situation will ever be elected. We want charisma and so we get populism. The economy will inevitably recover, and any great power's position on the world stage is precarious and subject to entropy.
