i think it will be very hard for Obama to win a second term. It depends on who the right comes up with to run against him, and the figures for unemployment, gross domestic product, housing starts, foreclosures, the stock market, and Iraq and Afghanistan just before the election.
It took an alignment of the stars, a crashing economy, plunging stock market, a frustrated war, and skyrocketing foreclosures and oil prices to get him in the first time. Keep in mind he only got about a third of the white vote. Since then, the far right has done their best to paint him as being as far away as possible to "one of us". An irresponsible spender with a chip on his shoulder for white america, who leans more towards big government, socialism, communism and marksism than capitalism.
But it is possible that by next summer the economy could be improving enough to give him a chance. Timing is everything, along with what clown the right comes up with to run against him.
