At Intrade, where people bet actual money, Obama is just a shade better than 50-50. Considering that we don't have a candidate and Obama has yet to have to defend the indefensible in a real debate with a real opponent, I'm not as pessimistic as you.
Here's the Intrade Link.
Unfortunately, further perusal of the site shows that the bettors are giving Romney about 2 chances out of 3 to be the nominee.

Obama does far worse against a generic Republican than any specific individual candidate. Once the GOP nominates someone, let’s see where the Intrade line goes.
