As we all know the U.S. presidential election is really a milestone for the planet that is repeated every 4 years, that is why we decided to make the article of this topic which we consider as important and even more so considering we study a career of Foreign Affairs.
Firstly we´ll explain briefly how the U.S. election works, then we´ll explain in detail how they are evolving today and what conclusions can a normal citizen have.
To explain the U.S. presidential elections we´ll not be doing the word limit agreed so we´ll explain it briefly.
Initially we note that any man or woman affiliated to a political party, whether Republican, Democrat or Independent has a chance to be president, provided that initially he or she wins enough delegates through local votes in the states, in the famous caucus and important dates like “Super Tuesday” and have money to fund his own campaign. After being elected prime candidate to be president, citizens can vote who they want to be the president of the United States.
Below you find a story written by our real-time monitoring of the elections this year 2012
According to a survey published by Reuters, the fame he has acquired U.S. President Barack Obama due to the campaign has increased slightly, while increased its distance from the Republican candidates ahead of presidential elections next 6 of November.
For the first time since last July 1, 50% of Americans surveyed approve of Obama, this means an increase of two points on the survey conducted in February.
Also 37% of respondents believe that the U.S. leads to success, representing an increase of five points over the previous measurement.
Cliff Young, from Reuters, explained that the shift may be related to the creation of 227,000 jobs, a figure that indicates an improving economy. “Not by leaps and bounds, but people notice that things are starting to go better,” he noted.
This increase of popularity led Obama to be in front of the Republican Party candidates for the presidential elections next 6 of November consolidating its leadership.
If there was a clash with former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, favorite Republican candidate choice, Obama now will get 52% of the vote against 41% for Romney, who is twice the distance recorded in February measurement.
The same goes for the other two Republicans who have real options for being in office. Obama would get a 52% to 42% of former Senator Rick Santorum, and 54% versus 37% of former House Speaker Newt Gingrich representatives.
