President Barack Obama won a second term in the White House on Tuesday (November 6), overcoming deep doubts among voters about his handling of the U.S. economy to score a clear victory over Republican challenger Mitt Romney. The mood at the celebratory election viewing night soon changed to one of tears and disappointment as the election results began to come in. "I feel kind of defeated. I think if we had have gotten a better start to the race, it would have been a lot easier to get the election but Obama obviously won, people obviously want him to be president, so we just have four more years to get through until we can get a new one," said Megan, a Romney supporters from Dallas, Texas, who shed tears as the result was announced. "I mean the unemployment rate is going to go up continuously, it hasn't gone down at all, that's all I care about," "I don't believe we have a real foreign policy and you know Mitt Romney had a clear idea of who our allies are and was ready to stand behind them," Romney, the multimillionaire former private equity executive, came back from a series of campaign stumbles to make it close after besting the president in the first of three presidential debates. The 65-year-old former Massachusetts governor conceded in a gracious speech delivered to disappointed supporters at the Boston convention center.
