Obama Looks a Winner, but I am not Sure Now
A Second Term for Obama
Looking at the election scenario, the jigsaw is finally getting solved. the opponent of Obama is Mitt Romney and now the election is in full swing and 2 of the 3 presidential debates are over.
To win nomination a candidate is to win 1144 delegates and votes and Romney is the man to face Obama. The fact is Mitt was lagging behind Obama by almost 7/8 percentage points just a few weeks back, but now after the first debate slowly but surely Mitt has come abreast of Obama. Now one cant be sure about Obama as there is agood chance Romney may move ahead..
the media in the USA plays a big hand in any election. Obama has an advantage as a sitting president starts with an advantage. A sitting President rarely loses an election and since Roosevelt only 2 have lost. Thus Obama starts with an advantage.
The fact remains that sitting presidents have lost and Obama will not be the first to lose. Obama despite a healthy creation of jobs has lost his charisma and Mitt has brought this out. Mitt may well move ahead of Obama and it will be a toss up who wins, but Mitt is definitely in with a chance.
Come to think of it many political commentators were forecasting an Obama win just 4 weeks back, Nobody then gave Mitt a chance, but strange are the ways of US elections. Suddenly Mitt has got up from his sick bed and gave a telling blow in the first presidential debate. Obama put in a poor performance. The second debate was more even, but now its clear Obama has a fight on his hands.
