Nine days ahead of presidential election, the excitement in the air all over the United States (U.S.) is reaching feverish pitch with incumbent Democratic President Barack Obama who is running for a second and final term stretching his lead in the polls on the Republican candidate, former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney. The journey, which started on January 3 this year with the Lowa caucus convergence and followed quickly by the New Hampshire primary will climax with the main decisive event-voting on Tuesday November 6 2012.This year’s exercise, will be the 57th quadrennial presidential election.
