It is looking more and more like Obama may get crushed at the polls.

As recently as six months ago, Obama seemed unbeatable.

Now as we enter into an even deeper recession what will Obama do?

1. His government owes millions of people trillions of dollars that currently don't exist:

Life Inc. - Uncle Sam's total unfunded obligations: $62 trillion

2. Home prices have fallen off a cliff...

...again:

US house price fall 'beats Great Depression slide' - Business News, Business - The Independent

3. Unemployment is approaching Depression-era levels:

Alternate Unemployment Charts

I would be surprised if Mr. Obama wins ANY states next year. (Hawaii is now officially a swing state!)

Game. Set. Match.

Obama done in 4...

Obama will win every state Kerry did in 2004. All he has to do is win Ohio or Florida. He's polling very well in both states and the Republican governors of both of those states will almost guarantee a backlash against Republicans state-wide.

Obama will need another 4 years to finish the job.

For all you Obama bashers....Even if there was a republican in office right now, you would STILL complain about the president is not doing enough. We could have even given Bush 12 years and you all would not be satisfied.

Mit, Ron, Palin....whoever....Its gonna be the same thing after they are in office. I give the next president(if it is someone new) about a year into their presidency before you all are complaining for someone new.

Bush sucked but compared to Obama, he was the Michael Jordan of Presidents.

I don't vote in the polls with leading questions. A 'yes', 'no', 'unsure' would elicit responses without the poll-taker being forced into some built-in assertion they don't believe in.

And no, it won't be like the '84 election. If the GOP runs Romney, it could be close and I won't predict the winner at this point in time. If the GOP nominee is one of the others currently running, or rumored to maybe running, I think Obama will win comfortably. There won't be a landslide defeat of Obama, regardless of how much some hyper-partisans feel the whole country thinks the way they do.

Maybe we would be complaining but isn't that our prerogative? As for giving him 4 more years, that is what scares me, I don't want him messing up anymore than he has.

Will he get beat? Heck who knows and this poll is pretty lame if you ask me. Of course it won't be like 1984, he is the incombant.

Before we start predicting doom and gloom and landslide defeats, you may actually want to see polls with multiple Republicans leading Obama, or Obama losing in multiple polls.

The time to make this thread is not when Obama losing to one Republican in one poll, defeating said Republican in all the other polls, and defeating every other Republican in every single poll.....
