He carried 47-48% of the vote in the 2008 election. Since the state is becoming ever more diverse, do you think Obama might actually win Georgia in 2012?

Not likely, in my view, but I think it could depend somewhat on who is running against him.

In one word...no. Yes, Obama had a strong showing in GA in 2008, but that was because there were large swaths of non-black urban residents who believed in his "change" (part), but many were basically irate after 8 years of GW. They aren't angry at GW anymore and "change" hasn't really been seen by most...so IMHO, Georgia will vote at least 60 percent Republican regardless of the nominee.

Obama will win GA if Newt removed is on the ballot but will probably not win GA if Mitt is on. If Ron Paul is 3rd party, Obama wins there as well.

I think a sizable percentage of GA voters are going to have a serious dilemma if the general election ends up being President Obama vs Mitt Romney.

No, he will not. If he couldn't during the height of his popularity, no record to face, and the backlash to Bush, then he has no chance in 2012, with his popularity being much lower and 4 years of a poor record to have to face head on.

In fact, I will go out on a limb and say he has practically a zero chance of winning Georgia.

My hope is that he does. In reality, it is doubtful. Despite what the republican nominees have shown us (no need to elaborate), I still believe Georgia will remain a red state.

Not happening. Georgia may be slowly trending toward the middle, but that won't stop what's coming in November.

Ah, well. Four years of Mitt might get some people to wake up. Maybe.
