    A straw poll of the forum partisans, can Obama win reelection? This is not whether you love and worship him, but if you honestly think he has a chance of being elected.

    In a short answer yes, I think only Ron Paul, Mit Romney and Jon Hunstman have a chnce to beat him.

    In my humble opinion, unless the GOP finally fields a candidate who can appeal to more than just their "base" of rabid conservatives, Obama WILL be reelected, regardless of how voters feel about his performance to date.

    I voted "Yes - easily" because it was the only "Yes" choice.

    If Obama wins, I doubt it will be easily. I have my doubts that he will win. But he certainly can win.

    Of course he CAN win... his win last time shows anyone can... it all depends on spin, circumstances, political climate, etc...

    Do I think it is probable that it happens if the REPs run someone even halfway reputable with even a base knowledge of economics? Nope... but anything can happen

    You can't win with ONLY your base, either.

    Anything is possible. I can not imagine if there is not significant economic improvement over the next 15 months.
    His ability to mobilize the brainless vote is impressive and really makes it anyone's election.
