There are several reasons why Barack won:
Here are a few of them (there are more):
He is a great speaker with great ideas.
The economy is just terrible. And it is obvious that even though capitalism is a great system, it needs to be regulated.
For good reason, the poor, the sick, the elderly, the young, the college educated, and most minorities like Barack’s policies.
I did not think Barack would overcome the fact that too many people are bigoted against a black man becoming president. But he did. There are still a lot of racists in this country but fewer than there used to be. Hurray!
I think it is important to remember that Barack cannot do it alone. He will need a lot of real work from all Americans. For example, we need to do a better job conserving energy. Go Barack. God Bless America!
Hey I was wrong. There are fewer bigots than I thought there were.
