Haiti's presidential election

Today is the day of presidential election in US. Everybody is curious that who will win the election. Is there any way possible to predict the outcome of the election. I am going to try to predict the election result below;

In order to predict the 2012 election, I need to first discuss the last US presidential election held in 2008. In 2008, the Republican party nominated Mr McCane as its candidate for presidency and Democratic party nominated MR Barack Obama. McCane represented a war hero. He had participated in the Vietnam war and got injured in that war. In 2008, America was fighting a war in Iraq and Afghanistan. Republicans thought that the American people will support McCane because he was a war veteran. Republicans thought that American people wanted a war hero to be their president and Mr McCane will increase the forces in Iraq and Afghanistan and thus will help to protect America from political Islam. But the American people rejected the Republican policies of war in the muslim countries and instead voted for Mr Barack Obama.

Mr Barack Obama is a lawyer by profession. American people selected him because they rejected the war mongering policies of Mr Bush. In 2008, American people rejected a war hero in place for a lawyer. This choice of the American people reflected their distance from American wars and the desire of the American people to correct their failing economy. Obama after becoming the president ordered closure of the Guantanamo Bay prison. Although he did not fulfil his promise but it was obvious that he understood the desires of the American people to distance America away from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and instead focus on the American Economy. Obama finished the war in Iraq and then announced the dateline of ending Afghanistan war. He also killed Osam Bin Laden in Pakistan thus removing Al Qaeda of its founder.

So the lessen we learned from 2008 presidential election can be applied to 2012 elections. In 2008, American people showed their desires by selecting Mr Obama in improving American Economy and finishing American wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Barack Obama helped businesses with bailout packages and salvaged many business giants. His success in improving the American economy can be seen by getting approved the Healthcare Bill and the New York Stock Exchnage.

What is the the biggest problem of American people today. The unemployment in US is 7.9 %. Republicans have nominated Mr Romney as their candidate for presidency. Mr Romney is a private businessman and if he is selected he can improve the American economy very well. On the other hand Mr Obama does not have any experience in business.

As a result of the background of Mr Romney in business it is predicted that he will win the majority of the vote of the American people and thus win the 2012 US election.
