Election Report Card

No matter whom they voted for, a majority of Americans have little good to say about the 2012 election. In a Pew Research Center poll, 68 percent said that there was more mudslinging and negative campaigning than in 2008. Romney earned an average grade of C for his performance, while Obama fared slightly better with a C+.
