The upcoming Presidential election is a big determinant of some key issues the United States is in the process of addressing: gay marriage rights, healthcare and much more. The 'Fate of the Nation' takes a look at the state of the nation and the opinions of the population as a whole.

This, in turn, means that this upcoming election is going to be a close call and that one camp will inevitably be incredibly disappointed. The graphic points to a 51% unapproval rating of Republican nominee Mitt Romney and and only a 47.2% approval rating of Obama's economic powers. Both camps seem to be kind of iffy on their frontrunners for the time being.
