This article discussed ten factors that played an import part in who won the election for the Presidency. Some of these factors included women, swing state suburbs, and social media. All these factors played an important part on how different states would vote and which candidate would earn more votes.

US election: Key issues

US election: Key issues | US Elections and Voting Behaviour | Scoop.it
Where do Obama and Romney stand on the key issues that will help decide the election?
James Robinson's insight:

A useful article giving both Obama and Romney's views on key issues in the 2012 Presidential Election.

Possible good examples if shortened, as it's a bit 'waffly'?

Demographics of How Groups Voted in the 2012 Presidential Election

Demographics of How Groups Voted in the 2012 Presidential Election | US Elections and Voting Behaviour | Scoop.it
Demographic breakdown of how groups voted during the 2012 Presidential election. Candidates include Barack Obama, and Mit Romney.
James Robinson's insight:

This article links with the work we did at the end of year 12, which might prove a bit too distant for all our brains to recall. It covers the main groups in the 2012 Presidential Election, and which way they voted. This information could be useful in a wide variety of essays, and invaluable when picking out key  examples when it comes to revision!

Hillary Clinton: I backed Osama bin Laden raid, Joe Biden didn't - Katie Glueck

Hillary Clinton: I backed Osama bin Laden raid, Joe Biden didn't  - Katie Glueck | US Elections and Voting Behaviour | Scoop.it
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Tuesday took some indirect swipes at Vice President Joe Biden at an off-the-record gathering, a state representative in attendance told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
James Robinson's insight:

This article provides an interesting insight into party conflicts before elections. Here, Hillary Clinton (defeated by Obama in 2008) is taking a swipe at fellow presidential hopeful Joe Biden, in an attempt to give herself an advantage. It is worth noting that the primaries begin in Jan 201 (suggesting the importance of the 'invisible' primary to candidates?).

Another example of conflict in 2012 between Ron Paul and Mitt Romney turned the Republican primary programme into a bitter personal rivalry.
