img President Barack Obama managed to fight off a struggling economy to capture a second term as the nation’s chief executive Tuesday, vowing that “we’ve got more work to do” to cure the country’s fiscal ills.

It wasn’t the mandate he achieved four years ago, but Obama captured many of the same states he took when first elected in 2008, and was on the road to winning the popular vote — though that was in doubt at first. In defeating Republican challenger Mitt Romney, Obama won all the critical states where he held the slimmest of poll leads, including Ohio, Virginia, Colorado and Nevada.
