As we all know, last night the President of the United States, Barack Obama won the Presidential Election and will serve a second term. Victories in some of the swing states sealed Obama’s victory, some of these very swing states he was unable to win in the last election. The growing diversity in the electorate is seen as a major reason that Obama was able to take the victory. A rising generation of diverse individuals seems to be pushing forward and Obama is making a connection with that rise. As noted by our post of Bill Maher, the Republicans need to embrace this change and find ways to connect with it or they could be fighting an uphill battle in future elections. Check out Obama’s victory speech below.
