BRONXVILLE N.Y. ? It's been two days and a nor'easter since President Barack Obama was re-elected, yet the outcome is still the topic of conversation among Bronxville residents.

Like many places around the country, Bronxville was divided going into the election. And now with Obama's re-election is solidified, some residents are questioning America's future prosperity, while others see brighter days on the horizon.

Bronxville liberal Peter Lee said he couldn't be any happier with how the election turned out.

"I'm ecstatic that Obama will remain our president," he said. "I really do agree with all of his policies, and I'm confident that he is the best leader for our country. You might think that Bronxville is all conservative, but pretty much everyone that I'm close with shares the same ideology as I do."

Many residents share Lee's faith in Obama, but many, like Ken McGrag, do not.

"I would say things turned out just horribly," said McGrag. "I honestly can't believe that we're going to have another four years with this guy. I voted for Romney, heck I even prayed for him to win. I've lived in Bronxville for 25 years, so I know a thing or two about who people were rooting for, and it sure wasn't Obama."

Joseph Lamagna is another Bronxville residents who wanted to see a change in leadership.

"I've voted Democratic before, so my views don't come from that, and they don't come from a race issue either," said Lamagna. "In the end, all that matters is what has been done, and what will be done, and I just don't think Obama has showed us enough. We need to leave the Middle East alone and make America our priority. I really honestly hope that he can prove me wrong."
