President Barack Obama has won a second term, beating Republican hopeful Mitt Romney. He won re-election in a closely fought race, overcoming the doubts of a nation ravaged by a prolonged economic downturn and setting up a test of whether he can forge a productive second term in a divided political system.
On Twitter, President Barack Obama tweeted: “This happened because of you. Thank you. We’re all in this together. That’s how we campaigned, and that’s who we are. Four more years. Thank you.”
