Never underestimate the stupidity of the American voter. I remember the pundits called the Carter-Reagan race "too close to call" and Reagan won by a landslide. And you can expect the MSM to try and manipulate 2012 as well.

Paul Hooson:

Although disappointment in the president is nearly universal, I'm willing to wager that he's re-elected in 2012 for several reasons:

1.Importantly the strongest GOP candidates will stay out of the race because of fear of running a losing campaign. The best candidates will wait until 2016. A weak GOP nominee will almost certainly fall flat in the general election if they don't look very presidential in the debates against the president. He still retains a certain charisma factor.

2.Obama runs a strong enough campaign effort that sells himself well enough that voters don't feel like making a change. That doesn't sound like a strong enough reason to vote, but many voters fall for that line of reasoning. Look at Bush vs. John Kerry. A weak president could defeat a weak opponent with a strong enough campaign effort.

3. Voters like a divided government that doesn't really achieve anything. The GOP retains control of Congress passing legislation that is never signed into law by the president, and the president proposes a direction for the country that Congress never follows. Never mind the economy or China running circles around the U.S. with progress, Americans seem to like a country that never moves ahead politically or economically. It's like a curse Americans put on themselves.

4. I'm still not sure where Obama gets enough electoral votes to be re-elected yet. However, if gets around 50% or more of the popular vote, and his GOP opponent pulls lower numbers, even in the high 40's, then those numbers pull along enough electoral votes for Obama to win.

The bottom line is this. Despite so much dissatisfaction in Washington I don't really expect voters to change anything. If you don't like Washington today, you likely won't like Washington any better after the 2012 election which likely won't change very much of the landscape.

Paul - Don't forget that very large group that didn't vote last time. They WILL be voting this time and NOT for the wON.

Paul, all of your reasons a... (Below threshold)

Paul, all of your reasons are based on pre2010 election thinking.
The electorate is NOT happy with the current direction the (P)resident and the Democrats set in motion with their out of control spending and borrowing.

"Voters like a divided government"
My ass they do, what do you call 2008 - 2010? Liberal Democrats vs Conservative Democrats? The GOP was completely out of the loop, completely shut out of the ENTIRE budget negotiation and bill creating process as demonstrated quite aptly by the 'Health Care' bill that got jammed down the protesting public's throat.

You can look for a Democrat bloodbath in the Senate as dissatisfied independent and conservative voters tell 'The Won' and his conspirators that they lost in 2012 because they didn't have ANY fiscal responsibility.

Razorgirl. You're absolutel... (Below threshold)
Paul Hooson:

Razorgirl. You're absolutely right about that view. AntiObama voters should be more energized in 2012. However, unless the GOP fields a strong enough candidate acceptable to the mainstream of voters, that core of antiObama energy doesn't overcome Obama if he runs against a weaker opponent, still allowing him to be re-elected if he appears to be the best of the two candidates to most voters. Obama doesn't have to appear to be excellent to win re-election, but just better than his GOP opponent. That's all.

But, there is always a chance that Obama pulls a Jimmy Carter. But, that would mean that something goes really wrong in the MidEast to blame on Obama. But, right now Obama's Gallup numbers are getting stronger in response to Libya for example, so that just isn't happening. But, the economy remains a serious stumbling block for Obama, especially with higher inflation as a result of oil. That along with any unforeseen foreign policy mess still holds serious danger for the re-election hopes of Obama. But, my best guess is that the worst possible factors don't fall into place and Obama still wins a narrow re-election despite everything.

Steve Crickmore:

However, unless the GOP fields a strong enough candidate acceptable to the mainstream of voters,

There is no fear of that Paul. So far the field of GOP candidates or pr -candidates are presenting themselves as an embarrassing freak show, as each one tries to outdo the other, as to what insane thing they can say, to endear themselves to the crazies.

today's example primo is Newt, who really needs to get back on his meds, worrying about his grandchildren:

"I have two grandchildren — Maggie is 11, Robert is 9," Gingrich said at Cornerstone Church here. "I am convinced that if we do not decisively win the struggle over the nature of America, by the time they're my age they will be in a secular atheist country, potentially one dominated by radical Islamists and with no understanding of what it once meant to be an American."

There is genius in this: no other human had located the secular humanist wing of radical Islam before.
