    Your argument has never been borne out in history.  No President with positive job approval has ever been turned out.

    It's happened before downballot, but only because a state or district is heavily partisan against the incumbent's party, plus there's a wave election against that incumbent's party.  That was Lincoln Chafee's problem.  And it's looking like it'll happen to Scott Brown even without a wave.

    But the country is evenly-divided, neither side has a partisan advantage in the electorate.

    If Obama's job approval is net positive with voters in reality, he will win.  Of that I'm sure.
