    if the economy doesn't even slightly get out of this funk, Obama will lose. It's that simple. No campaigning will get him out of this hole. Anyone who thinks we can win by just showing the voters who the GOP is only needs to look at the 2010 elections. If I recall, Obama gave speech after speech saying whose fault the economy was.

    And the people KNOW whose fault it is. Every poll I have seen shows that voters blame Bush and the GOP for the current downturn. But I have seen no sign of it holding back the GOP.

    People panic too much on this site.

        leading or tied with them as a whole. Obama doesn't need a majority of independents to win. Ford won the independent vote against Carter. Kerry won the independent vote against Bush. Anyone who says that whoever wins the independent will win the election is ignorant.

        Yes, of course, the independent vote HELPS, but the idea that that alone will cause a loss is not true.

        Besides, why did you even bring that up? That has nothing to with my comment.
