  •  Obama is more than any of the Republicans (0+ / 0-)

    who may run against him, but that's not saying much.

    •  Yeah he doens't win the charisma key (0+ / 0-)

      But what is interesting about this system is that, even if both economic keys turn against him, it seems like he can still win.

      •  yea I see the flaw in this (0+ / 0-)

        system with that conundrum. How can the economy completely tank and he still win re-election? If the economy keeps steadily rising and unemployment goes to 8% or under I think he is safe for 2012.

        •  It has worked (0+ / 0-)

          Lichtman worked with a physicist using complicated statistics to make it work. But at this point I think he has at least one of two economic keys because the US economy, while admittedly anemic, is not recession.
