'Intrade' gives Obama a 54.5% chance of reelection in 2012, do you agree?
His odds went up this morning. The Supreme Court has taken wind out of his opponents' sails. I'd guess Intrade's rating will rise over the next week.
No doubt in my mind, that President Obama will have another term as President.
Obama seems to be the least worst, so I think he has a fair shot at it. Better than Romney does.
I think these chances seem about right. There are a number of people that I know who feel that anything is better than Romney and vice-versa. I just hope these people vote on the issues and set party lines aside.
Personally, I don't have much faith in percentages and focus groups projecting a winner in the November election. The obscene amount of money that is and will continue to flow into this presidential race may, in fact, sway many people to vote for the guy with the most face time on TV. There will undoubtedly be the repetitive drumbeat of falsehoods, innuendos, fear and scare tactics. The mere thought of over $1 billion being spent on this presidential election nauseates me.
The more sickening point to me is that both sides are harping on their innocence by accusing the other of the corrupt moneybagging and declaring they have no choice but to do it themselves in order to compete. The hypocrisy of the parties is amazing.
I have not heard of intrade but I do not put much faith in election statistics. I feel at this point it is too early to tell who will be elected in November. I respect the Supreme Court and what they stand for but it is always the voters who will have the last say. The election results in November will tell if Americans agree with the decision of the court. Those we elect in November will have an impact on this law as it goes forward. Just because a law is declared Constitutional it does not mean the right decisions have been made. Like most Americans I feel there are parts of the law which make sense and parts that do not.

President Obama's jigsaw puzzle strategy is winning him support of women,youth,immigrants and hispanics,black voters,union workers etc. Romney's strategy is based on how bad a president Obama has been and pandering to the republican base which is controlled by the tea party and the extreme right...

So, we've seen this before. A sweep of the offices to the opposite direction, but then the president being reelected. It happened with Clinton, Reagan, etc. So, will Obama be reelected despite yesterday's landslide?
