Obama gewinnt Präsidentschaftswahl

Wie bereits zu erwarten war, hat Obama seine Wiederwahl gewonnen. Nate Silvers mathematisches Model hat diesen Wahlausgang vorrausgesagt. Ferner, konnte er den Ausgang in jeder der 50 Staaten bestimmen. (In Florida ist das Ergebnis äußerst knapp, aber hier hat nach aktuellen Stand Obama etwa 46.000 Stimmen mehr als Romney gewonnen). Damit kommt Obama auf 332 Wahlmänner, und das ist genau die Anzahl, welche Nate Silvers als am Wahrscheinlichsten eingestuft hatte. 

Eines zeigt dieser Wahlausgang und die Berichterstattung in den deutschen Medien davor. Obamas Sieg war sicher (mit oder ohne Florida). Man hätte einfach mal Analysen in der New York Times lesen müssen.

Hier noch die Rede Romney, in welcher er seine Wahlniederlage anerkennt, und die - wie ich eingestehen muss - großartige Siegesrede Obamas.

What makes America exceptional are the bonds that hold together the most diverse nation on earth. 
The belief that our destiny is shared; that this country only works when we accept certain obligations to one another and to future generations. The freedom which so many Americans have fought for and died for come with responsibilities as well as rights. And among those are love and charity and duty and patriotism. That’s what makes America great.
I have never been more hopeful about America. And I ask you to sustain that hope. I’m not talking about blind optimism, the kind of hope that just ignores the enormity of the tasks ahead or the roadblocks that stand in our path. I’m not talking about the wishful idealism that allows us to just sit on the sidelines or shirk from a fight. I have always believed that hope is that stubborn thing inside us that insists, despite all the evidence to the contrary, that something better awaits us so long as we have the courage to keep reaching, to keep working, to keep fighting. 
America, I believe we can build on the progress we’ve made and continue to fight for new jobs and new opportunity and new security for the middle class. I believe we can keep the promise of our founders, the idea that if you’re willing to work hard, it doesn’t matter who you are or where you come from or what you look like or where you love. It doesn’t matter whether you’re black or white or Hispanic or Asian or Native American or young or old or rich or poor, able, disabled, gay or straight, you can make it here in America if you’re willing to try. 
I believe we can seize this future together because we are not as divided as our politics suggests. We’re not as cynical as the pundits believe. We are greater than the sum of our individual ambitions, and we remain more than a collection of red states and blue states. We are and forever will be the United States of America.

Mir fällt zu Obamas Wahlsieg nur folgendes ein:
USA, welcome back on the road to statism, let Europe be your guide how to deal with unpaid bills. We know how to ru(i)n countries ...
