British comedian Ricky Gervais was unable to vote in the November 6, 2012 election, but that doesn't mean he has no opinion on the candidates. Jim Norton on SiriusXM's Opie & Anthony Show, Gervais urges listeners to vote no matter what, but he throws his support behind President Barack Obama.
Ricky Gervais tried Mormonism on Twitter: "My favorite is Joseph Smith, a married man who found that lost Bible text that said he could date other women. Haha!" With David Letterman, Gervais again questioned the motivation behind Mitt Romney's faith.
After the interview, the British comedian sent a message to Barack Obama: "I think I just won you the election. You're welcome. Good luck! From an Englishman who cannot vote!"
Barack Obama election 2012
The 2012 United States presidential election was held on November 6.
They saw the victory of Barack Obama, the outgoing President supported by the Democratic Party, who defeated Mitt Romney, supported by the Republican Party. The presidential elections were held at the same time as the parliamentary elections, for the renewal of the House of Representatives and 33 seats (out of 100) in the Senate.
Gubernatorial elections were also held in 13 states. The outgoing president, Barack Obama, defeated the Republican candidate Romney, obtaining about 65,900,000 votes and 332 electoral votes. Romney however marked a general recovery of consensus, obtaining around 61,000,000 votes and 206 electoral votes.
In the Democratic Party, there were no other relevant nominations other than that of outgoing President Barack Obama as the whole party said they were in favor of his second administration. The nomination was made official during the Democratic convention held from September 3 to September 6 in Charlotte, North Carolina.
The Republican Party, unlike the Democratic Party, obviously had no outgoing presidential or vice presidential candidates. The two White House nominees were nominated at the August 27, 2012 Republican convention in Tampa, Florida.
