Obama wins by over 290 to about 203 Romney. Obama is now re-elected president of United States of America. I was holding my breath because at first it appeared Romney was winning. Four years ago I was in a different home and sat on my balcony listening to the collective cheering like as if their was a big football game going on. In my new neighborhood it has been quite silent. But twitter was on fire. I could since everyone holding there breathe like me. A few pictures were posted to update the public on the votes as they progress. Even children were involved in the process. A local school had children vote on who they would want to be president and Obama has won also overwhelmingly. The results shows he was a favorite among the children in my area.
Many celebrities such as @CMilianOfficial @iamdiddy @cass @lilkim. also encourage people to come out and vote. The picture to the left was taken from Lil kim facebook page. @wakaflaka also has shown support. Paul McCartney openly said he supported Obama. Also news of a seemingly rigged vote machine has been posted online and on twitter.
When I had a hard time keeping up with the election I went on yahoo news and 5 minutes later breaking news hit Obama has won. Than I turned to BBC to see a foreign news station to see how they react and they have been very somber not sad but not as excited as the first election. I since some had been trying to hide their feeling, as if they don’t want to gloat or show their disappointment. One reporter live in Beijeng speculated that a lot of foreign countries are more “comfortable with President Obama” also “it takes 18 months to get foreign government to get used to a new president.”
