The next presidential election in the United States will be held on November 6, 2012, and a couple of main opponents are already known. In early autumn, the Republican Party officially nominated Mitt Romney, and the Democratic Party - Barack Obama. Preliminary forecasts of the outcome of the vote indicate a victory by a small margin of the incumbent president.
The projected number of Americans who are going to vote for Barack Obama's opponent is only a few percent less than the number of his supporters. However, this does not mean at all that almost half of the population has really serious claims to the current US president. Today, the economic situation of the citizens of this country cannot be called really bad, so they make a choice between good and even better options. Nevertheless, there are claims to Obama, since the decisions of the president acting in the context of the global financial crisis are aimed at reducing the income of certain groups of the population. There are also complaints about his political program from those who consider the Conservative course more preferable for the development of the United States.
The most serious arguments of Obama's opponents are related to the domestic economic situation. The president is blamed for the increase in unemployment during his term from 7, 7% to 8.3%. This problem mainly affected people with low educational levels and was largely the result of the transfer of production of many goods from the United States to China. And rich Americans got another reason to be unhappy. For example, many insurance companies and well-paid doctors will lose some of their income after the health care reform law is passed. The implementation of this reform was a pre-election promise of the black president, and the adopted law, in particular, obliges all Americans to obtain a certificate of insurance. It is paid in the United States, and about 10 million citizens do not want to withdraw the necessary amount from their budget. Experts believe that the adoption of the law should lead to a reduction in the cost of insurance, and this will significantly reduce the income of the companies selling them.
Other reasons for dissatisfaction with the current president of people with certain religious views include, for example, his support for the widespread legalization of same-sex marriage and statements in favor of women's rights to abortion.
