President Barack Obama will serve another four years as President of the United States.
Obama took battleground states including Ohio, Iowa and Colorado on his way to the 270 electoral votes he needed.
Mitt Romney, who campaigned in Cleveland Tuesday, unsuccessfully campaigned on the theme that his business background would help guide the nation out of tough economic times.
Obama will again be dealing with a divided Congress. Democrats maintained control of the Senate and Republicans likely will control the House again.
