Bet on the 2012 USA Presidential Election Party to Win and other political betting at Allpro.
The 2012 Presidential Election will be an exciting and highly emotionally charged time. Having received both praise and criticism during his time in office, it will be interesting to see if Barack Obama will seek re-election.
One of the major changes to note is that this election will take place during some electoral college changes. Florida, always at the center of controversy and having the ability to sway elections, will now have one more vote. Ohio, also no stranger to the spotlight, will have two fewer votes.
There have been many speculated candidates, particularly from the GOP. Sarah Palin will most likely run, as will Mitt Romney. The Independent party has some interesting prospects, including journalist Lou Dobbs and New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
The pressing issues will most surely be the economy and unemployment rate, gay marriage, and troop withdrawal. The person who will win will inevitably be someone who appeals to both the left and right and can approach the presidency in a balanced manner.
The Democratic party can win if they hold to the promises made in the last election. But the oil spill and health-care have not fared well in the eyes of conservatives. By contrast, the Republican party can win if they focus on trimming the budget, and less on controversial issues like gun control.
Unfortunately, the other parties may not have a chance to win, but disgust with both parties will definitely steer votes in that direction. This election will prove how the two major parties are beginning to lose luster and need to go back to the drawing board.
Whoever wins the 2012 election will have to be a forward thinking person working toward unity.
