In fact, it is the members of the electoral college for whom people across the country will vote for, and those elected members of the Electoral college are going to vote for their party leader- Obama for Democrats and Romney for Republicans. These members will meet on December 17 to elect the President of the US, which is just a formality. There will be a total of 538 voters and the Presidential candidate winning more than 270 votes would win the race for the post of the US President.
In a poll that has been conducted for non-Americans, it has been found out that most of the people around the world want Obama to be re-elected as president of the US. It was conducted over 36 nations, where 84% wanted Obama to win the President's race, reported Business Standard. In India alone, it was 64% who also thought of the same. As per latest rumours, Obama looks in good shape for another four years at the White House.
Irrespective of the person who would become the President of the US, it is not going to be an easy task, with the recession in sight along with the growing unemployment within the US. There are lots of promises that have been made by the candidates before the election, but after they are elected, they have to put those words into action as well.
