US Elections 2012


US votes in election cliff-hanger  WASHINGTON: Americans voted Tuesday in a nail-biting presidential election marked by the starkly different economic visions of Democratic incumbent Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney.   The time for obsessing over key state opinion polls was over as the greatest political show entered its thrilling finale after an 18-month roller-coaster ride that exposed the nation's bitter polarization.   The most expensive campaign in US history saw an estimated $6 billion unleashed by the rival camps in a fight to win over that thin sliver of the electorate that could swing either way.   After a frantic burst of last-minute campaigning, voters were deciding whether to re-elect Obama despite the plodding economy or hand the reins to Romney, who has vowed a return to prosperity through smaller government.   They will also cast judgment on a third of the Democratic-led Senate and the entire Republican-run House of Representatives.

FACTBOX-US President Barack Obama   WASHINGTON: As the 44th president of the United States, Barack Obama, 51, signed into law a revamp of the national healthcare system and authorized the raid that killed Osama bin Laden but struggled to revive the economy and create jobs.  As the United States holds its presidential election on Tuesday, here are key facts about Obama, the nation's first black president.  - Barack Obama has a personal background like no other president in U.S. history. His mother, Ann Dunham, was a white woman from Kansas ...
