Hi all --

I know it's a year and a half BEFORE the election... but people are already starting to talk about the president's chances to win a second term.

Obama is the President, so he is going to be the front runner. It's really his race to lose, and I think he has left the door wide open for someone to knock him out. The only question is, is anybody out there?

The Republicans are becoming more and more radical... while the rest of the developed nations (Europe) is moving forward and is steadily increasing the standard of living for its citizens...(I lived there for over 20 years before returning to Oklahoma)

Best guess is a closer election, but he wins. I suspect that the GOP loses some House seats, not enough to flip majority.

I think that he will most definately win a second term.

With approvals in the mid-40s, a second term seems like wishful thinking.

Republicans are choosing not to run because their private polling is telling them they can't win against Obama. And the fact is, he is probably the most effective president of my lifetime (and I'm 56.)

Yeah, and what about Barbour, was he there last night?

What I see is a party trying to strip away Medicare and women's rights. I thought that Democrats might gain a few seats in the House next year, but now... older Americans are sufficiently ticked that you might see a flip back to Democratic control. The right has completely misjudged the meaning and intent of its 2010 election victory.

As for running the economy into the ground, that is quite
