“This year, Obama is in grave danger of failing the first test. Barring some major turnaround, he’ll probably be running for re-election with sub-50 percent approval ratings, with sub-40 percent approval ratings on most of the major issues, with unemployment over 8 percent, with real disposable income flat, and without any major legislative achievement under his belt that is also broadly popular. That’s a pretty tough profile; a challenger would not usually have to run a perfect campaign to defeat an incumbent under those circumstances.”
