President before election
The Election of 2012 was the 57th quadrennial presidential election, held on Tuesday, November 6, 2012. President Marco Rubio, so far the youngest president ever elected, ran for a second term over Hillary Clinton. While Clinton was popular as the first woman preidential candidate on the ticket of a major party, Rubio used his powerful debating skills and popularity as the first Hispanic president to help get ahead. He promised a "New Reagan Era;" less spending, lower taxes, and less government in general "just like in the Reagan-Gramm era." In a close election Rubio secured a second term, as Clinton had inferior oratorial and debating skills and many Democrats considered her a far-left extremist. However, it was much closer than Rubio's previous election.
