Obama wins second term as US president

Washington: Barack Obama has won the US presidential election, defeating his Republican challenger Mitt Romney. The incumbent president has secured at least 275 electoral votes to 203 for Romney. Obama is the second Democratic president who got second presidential term since World War II, after Bill Clinton.

Obama won a string of key states, including Ohio, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Iowa and New Hampshire, meaning that the win was all but guaranteed, though the vote-counting was far from complete.

Romney has taken 203 electoral votes from 23 states, including Texas, Louisiana, Kentucky, Indiana, South Carolina, Georgia, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Utah and Alabama.
