    Otherwise, you're looking at a 5 point race.  Max.

      Just for fun.  I will give you all the way to an eight point spread.  If UE is below 8, Obama spikes above 53 approval.  Because of demographic shifts he tends to overperform his approval by about 5 points.  Also if you took his approval and disapproval not liberal enough he is near 60.  I peg him mid to high 50's re-elect.  This one is not even going to be close.
