    A... way too early for that kind of prediction
    B... Historically, how has Gallup been predicting the results using the same criteria?

    He ought to be worried. A lot of what propelled him in 08 is gone. The financial crisis. The 'first black president" meme. His touted 'charisma".
    And I wouldn't bet on WI going Democratic either. The GOP has shown that their policies can solve problems without increasing taxes.

    It's too early to predict the outcome of the election, but not to predict his approval among the electorate. That number is far less volatile than election polling. His approval rating has remained fairly stagnant. That doesn't mean, of course, that people who don't approve of his current job won't still vote for him. That depends on what they think of the alternative. I mean, I have a hard time believing he won't win Oregon, for example.

    Michigan and Wisconsin are very much in play.

    I would be concerned if it were actual Obama vs Romney numbers rather than just Obama approval numbers

    You had me worried there at first

    I very much assure you his campaign is noting these numbers. I've worked on political campaigns in the past.
