A Perspective of the 2012 American Presidential Election
The upcoming presidential election will be determined by President Obama’s ability to lay out a positive agenda for the future, and the ability of the Republican nominee to offer America a rousing alternative to the status quo. The campaigns will be driven predominantly by domestic issues foremost in the minds of American voters, particularly the economy and jobs, and government spending and debt. President Obama will look for any morsel of positive data to prove to the American people the economy is growing. His ability to communicate his economic agenda will face its greatest test in 2012.
