LIVE COVERAGE of the 2012 US presidential election, November 6, 2012

MANILA, Philippines / COLUMBUS, Ohio, United States – A divided America goes to the polls Tuesday, November 6, to decide the close presidential race between Democrat President Barack Obama and Republican candidate Mitt Romney.

The final national polls showed an effective tie, with either Romney or Obama favored by a single point in most surveys, reflecting the polarized politics of a deeply divided nation.

Among those who are expected to troop to the voting precincts – or have voted already – are 700,000 Filipino-Americans mostly in the West Coast (49%), particularly California. Like the rest of the population, they are concerned with issues affecting the economy, immigration, job creation, and health care.
