On November 6th, Barack Obama was re-elected as the 44th president of the United States for a 2nd term. Running against republican candidate Mitt Romney, election night seemed intense for all Americans who kept an eye on state wins for each candidate when polls closed and votes were calculated.
The popular vote made it seem like it was a pretty close race, but was Obama’s re-election inevitable? Hints for major disasters like 9/11 have been dropped left and right in popular shows, comics and movies, but how about this presidential outcome?
Fox’s sci-fi show, Fringe, shows a banner (unrelated to the plot) which alludes to this theory very well.
