Barack Obama secured re-election by maintaining the coalition that gave him victory four years ago: black and Hispanic voters, young Americans, women and Americans with post-graduate degrees. These outnumbered Mitt Romney’s supporters among white men, older Americans and people who have not been to college. This emerges clearly from analysis of YouGov’s major survey of 36,000 Americans during the final week of the campaign. This showed Obama leading Romney by 51-49% among Americans who supported one or other of the two men. It will take some days, and possibly weeks, for the count to be completed; however, it looks as if the final tally will produce figures within 0.5% of these.

The very nature of Romney's business success means he cannot use the two fundamental sources of his business niche; risk-averse and selectivity, as a claim to be able to run the most powerful country in the world.

By common consent, President (Professor?) Obama's performance in last night's debate in Denver was lame and lacklustre. Where were his "zingers"? Why didn't he interject and interrupt to push back against Mitt Romney's omissions, exaggerations and half-truths? It could have been so different. Here are 10 questions that Obama could have thrown at his Republican opponent at various moments during the 90-minute debate.

The stakes are huge for the former governor. He must win back his fleeing electorate by convincing them he is a viable candidate for '100%' of the people as well as show he has a 'specific' plan for America.

The values that he holds are so overtly American that there seems little leeway for consensus, even with Democrats. He's moved to the right of his moderate Massachusetts governing since entering the election race, sure, but it appears his Americo-centrism has ballooned also.

The Government as Bogeyman

Mitt Romney is obsessing about size again and doing a great disservice to the American people by fixating on a bankrupt ideology of smaller government rather than on real, practical, public policy.

Baroness Warsi's idea that an increased role for religion will lead to a more just society is simply not borne out by the evidence. When religion enters the murky world of politics, all too often, women are the losers.
