2012 Landslide Potential

Written By: William F. B. O'Reilly - Jul• 27•11

A must read piece in National Journal today by Josh Kraushaar on the state-by-state Presidential race.  These pages touched on the exact same point a couple of weeks back. Bottom line:  There is the potential — potential — for President Obama to lose in a landslide next year. 

Here is Kraushaar on it today: 

“The race for president isn’t a national contest. It’s a state-by-state battle to cobble an electoral vote majority. So while the national polls are useful in gauging the president’s popularity, the more instructive numbers are those from the battlegrounds.

“Those polls are even more ominous for the president: In every reputable battleground state poll conducted over the past month, Obama’s support is weak. In most of them, he trails Republican front-runner Mitt Romney.  For all the talk of a closely fought 2012 election, if Obama can’t turn around his fortunes in states such as Michigan and New Hampshire, next year’s presidential election could end up being a GOP landslide.”
