President Barack Obama won a second term in the White House on Tuesday, overcoming deep doubts among voters about his handling of the US economy to score a clear victory over Republican challenger Mitt Romney.
Americans chose to stick with a divided government in Washington, by keeping the Democratic incumbent in the White House and leaving the US Congress as it is, with Democrats controlling the Senate and Republicans keeping the House of Representatives.
Obama told thousands of supporters in Chicago who cheered his every word that “we have picked ourselves up, we have fought our way back” and that for America, the best is yet to come.
He vowed to listen to both sides of the political divide in the weeks ahead and said he would return to the White House more determined than ever to confront America’s challenges.
