Live Updates on the Election 2012
For this past election, The Guardian has a page where one could watch updates in different medias such as newspaper websites and tweets as the polls closed and states lit up with which ever color they turned to be. These updates can be viewed and still appear to be occuring. The Guardian has also posted their take on Obama’s victory and the Republicans loss. “Action on the deficit will require a “grand bargain” with Congress and that means the Republican party, which retained control of the House of Representatives, though Democrats remain in charge in the Senate.” Within these next four years, there may not be a whole lot accomplished because of how control in Congress is split between parties.
