Four More Years:
Obama’s Re-Election

A panel of experts from the Institute of Governmental Studies at UC Berkeley discusses the election of 2012 and what it may tell us about the president’s second term. Obama’s second election was won by a narrower margin than in 2008, while voters maintained the norm of a Republican House and a Democratic Senate. What does this say about Obama, or is this more a reflection of Republican candidate Mitt Romney? What can the country expect from Obama in his second term and how will his leadership differ from his first term?
