The obvious reason that Obama won the presidential election on Nov. 4 was because he was famous. In fact 52% of the people that made up their mind before September voted for Obama. Another obvious reason was the 66% of people aged 18-24 voted for Obama, that category represented 10% of the vote.
In Florida 45% percent of people 65 years or over voted for Obama. Forty-five percent is an extremely high number in the large Republican retirement population in Florida. In the key state of Ohio 60% percent of voters who were worried about the economy voted for Obama.
The major amount of people in the US make $50,000-$75,000and in that category of the vote the race was almost tied, McCain narrowed out 59-58%. People who make less that that accounts for 31% of people.
Whether Obama will be a good president, or not, the American people sure agree with him and that is why I think Obama won.
