“Been trying to tell people the same thing. Yet it seems like the majority here on FR have managed to convince themselves Obama could not be re-elected - even though polling actually shows him faring remarkably well considering what a terrible job he has done. This absurd, echo chamber fantasy that Obama is going to be so easy to beat that we can just run anybody is absolute foolishness. Obama will be extremely difficult to defeat, he will get no less than 45% of the vote and is more likely to get closer to 50% of vote. IF we win in 2012, it will probably be by a very slim margin.”

Yes, these are the same type of people who thought Christine O'Donnell could win a statewide race in Delaware and were SHOCKED when she lost in a landslide defeat (even though every political analyst both right and left said she'd be crushed). There are some folks that are entirely divorced from reality and live in an echo chamber fantasy world.
