The United States Presidential Election of 2012 was extremely close. However, disatisfaction with Obama, coupled with poor weather, and fear of Iran, managed to just outwiegh concerns about Mitt Romney's conservative views, giving him a narrow win in enough states to pull off a victory. This election was noted for a strong performance by third-parties, with all three of the larst third parties having more support than the year before.
