Wrong. 2010 was an HISTORIC congressional election where the dems, with obama tied around their necks, got a shellacking.

It's going to be a close election.

Neither side can claim there going to be some kind of "grand landslide" for their candidate. I think the Dems are conceding Texas, the Deep South and some of the Rocky Mountain states; the GOP are conceding New England, the Mid-Atlantic, the upper Mid-West and California.

Uh huh. No historian would agree with you. The average guy on the street would give you a blank look, then laugh.

You'd have to tell them the Tea Party Republicans took over the House and train wrecked the governance of the Nation for them to appreciate how smart they were to throw your party out in the NEXT election...forgot about that eh?

And even that wasn't historic. This next election will be as historic as 2008. The neo cons are going to make sure of it. They're setting Romney up to lose by an even more incredible tsunami than McCain's landslide loss.

No, I think obama will lose NH and Maine, which went Red in 2010.

Obama has NO SHOT at Texas or the South.

Looks like a close election in the making and it'll be interesting to see how it plays out.

This year, it won't be "the in thing" to support Obama and Obama has a record to defend this time. That takes him down a notch but it's still guaranteed to be close.
Actually, Ohio's economy is recovering well. Unemployment is below the national average and the state is seeing strong montly job growth, particularly in manufacturing. Also, the Republican governor is unpopular.

Think about it.....every democrat, liberal, black, hispanic, youth vote to be had in 2008 was had and obama won 53% of the vote. Do you REALLY think he can duplicate that electoral perfect storm again?

Not even close.

53% is not a landslide. Neither is the approximately 800000 votes that separated victory from defeat in a handful of swing states.

Now, in 2010, THAT was a landslide as across the country the GOP won a massive number of legislative seats, state and federal.

Hilarious you would claim 2010 was not historic....the numbers say different.

Your guy got smashed...and so did his vp.

2011 was a warning as the Nation's intolerance for a bunch of politicians with no interest in serving the nation's needs came to a head. Recall epic, er historic, waves of rejection for the Tea Party Republicans as everyone who could, threw them out. Good luck in 2012...
