It is going to be mighty close, that's for sure.
My gut feeling is that he probably will be re-elected, mostly because the Republicans can't seem to find a compelling candidate. I think if they put up a fiscal conservative who was moderate on social issues, he or she would win in a landslide, but they keep tossing up these people who pretend to be fiscally conservative who seem to be there to push radical social agendas.
I agree with crankalicious... it's gonna be close but the GOP isn't fielding anyone who can make a difference... Honestly, both parties are massively jacked up right now, to include the President. I do forsee in-roads being made by the Tea Party folks and that we should be on the lookout for a viable third-candidate in future elections.
If the GRIP strategy works, then no. Unfortunately, not that many people are aware of it. If you want to, you could read my hub on it.
It all depends on where the economy is in November 2012 and the Republican candidate. Another recession and any sort of formidable Republican candidate will mean Obama does not win another term. If the economy holds steady or improves from now into next year (it looks kind of shaky right now) and the Repubicans nominate a dud, then Obama should win fairly easily. In 2008, Obama pulled out a lot of people that don't usually vote. If he can do it again with an economy not in recession, then he should win easily. If Republicans can't win states like Florida, North Carolina and Virginia (which they lost in 2008), then they are going to lose again in 2012. The 2012 election is very much up in the air right now.
If the election were tomorrow, he would be overwhelmingly defeated, in light of the current economic situation and unemployment. The Democratic machine is not making any sense right now with blaming it all on the GOP even though they have been in control for so long now. The other comment makes a good point that it depends on how the economy looks in Nov 2012 and what kind of candidate the GOP puts out there.
Yes. President Obama came into a big mess from President Bush and have done a fine job from all of the deadlock of issues confronting this nation from the bank failures, automotive industries failures, gas price increases, economy stagnant and slow recovery, war in Afghanistan of which he will be bringing our soldiers home starting next year in 2012 A.D., and many other issues that is facing this nation. He is doing a superb job at managing all of these things behind the scene especially with the economy of which the republicans are fighting him tooth and nail with solutions but theirs is no better if they have one to bring this economy back up of which President Obama having the economy on his list in trying to fix it in the right and not wrong way which will benefit the people of the United States with jobs in the future and also cares about everyone to have access to quality health care to cover almost everyone and can not be denied for pre existing conditions. Now for those of you crying over having to not have health insurance government or private insurance then it is only right to be tax to offset the expense for when you get sick and go to the hospital because you surely will end up in a hospital with that kind of attitude because we are all human beings and should have the basic health care issues taken care of for all of its citizens. You are paying way more now with the uninsured population then you would with this new health care package passed into law now and you are seeing the benefits of it now with the full implementation of it in 2014 A.D. so just chill out and let President Obama complete what he started with an 2nd term for President of the United States. President Obama keep up the good work that you are doing on behalf of the people of this nation and for their well being physical with this health care bill that was put into effect and law. Thank you very much President Obama from AMBASSADOR BUTLER. If you need someone who have common sense with this health care bill that is being attacked and suing you for it then you have my full support and can use my answer to this health care bill of which I brought up and answered it at the same time. GOD bless you President Obama and The United States Of America.

With so much vocal an organizational opposition to President Obama and his policies (such as they are) after only 9 months in office, is such criticism warranted? Does the opposition reflect minority intolerance, or a fear of growing minority influence?

Odd that the House was able to pass 60 bills repealing Obamacare when Obama was president but can't pass one when Trump is president.

“Barack Obama is now putting the United States squarely a decade behind Britain. Listening to the President’s State of the Union message last week was like a surreal visit to our own recent past: there were, almost word for word, all those interminable Gordon Brown Budgets that preached...
