    A recent Rasmussen poll showed only 25% of Americans who strongly support President Obama, with 36% who strongly disapprove of him! Also, recent polls show 68% of independents are leaning towards the republican candidate.

    Since registered democrats and republicans are roughly split 40% to 40%, the 20% of independents will decide the election in 2012, as usual.

    With a shift of 7 electoral votes due to the 2010 census, from blue states to red states, Obama might be facing an uphill battle for reelection in 2012.

    He will lose the vast majority of the 57 states he claims to have visited in 2008

    NY-26 proved just how stupid you are, and how unreliable ANYTHING coming from Rasmussen is.

    Only one President has been re-elected with unemployment over 7%. Ronald Reagan. Looks like it's bedtime for BOnzo.

    If the economy continues on the track its been on since he took office he will lose.
    If the economy gets better he will win.

    It about the jobs, and even with unemployment holding steady we are still losing jobs. The reason it doesn't show up on the unemployment % is that when people run out of unemployment benefits they are no longer considered in the statistic....even if they still aren't working.

    fail...........its amazing how Dems can do when they run as Tea Party candidates s0n!!!


    Anyway...........Ive been sayng for months that already, the math is seriouosly dour for Obama in terms of the electoral college. Pennsylvania and Florida are already going to be red states and the chances of Ohio going blue again get smaller every day. New Hapmshire might well go red as well. Zero red states will be going blue.........100% certainty. Even with Bob McNut running for the GOP, its going to be a dead heat and that doesnt take into consideration the economy going further into the shitter.

    And dont forget..........in 2008, the GOP got almost 50 million votes running the lamest-ass boring retread, John McCain.

    Independents are generally an intelligent bunch, so I don't think they would go back to the Republican side. Our memories of the Bush admin. are very much intact.
