Obama vs. History

“The history of American politics demonstrates that presidents who seek a second term either lose outright or win reelection with an even bigger mandate than they had before.”

“Polls (and the economy) today demonstrate that Obama will be hard-pressed to match or exceed his 7 percent popular vote margin of four years ago; it’s just not going to happen barring something major. So if he wins, he’s likely to join Woodrow Wilson as the only presidents to win by a smaller margin the second time around.”

“most presidents in Obama’s position — that is, in worse shape than in their first race — go on to lose.”
