4 more years for the 44th President, CNN reports

It’s official, President Barack Obama  has won re-election in a closely fought race against republican candidate Mitt Romney.

Americans delivered the final judgment on a long and bitter campaign that drew so many people to the polls.

Obama’s victory marks a landmark in modern election history. No sitting president since Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1940 has won re-election with a higher unemployment rate, which stands at 7.9%. It is also the first time since 1816 the U.S. has had three consecutive two-term presidents.

The announcement came after the president was the projected winner in the crucial battleground of Ohio, and subsequently won both Iowa and Oregon. This put Obama over the required 270 electoral votes.
