    President Obama's done a lot of talking recently about Winning the Future. Trouble is, he's not. Politically.

    At this moment -- 57% of the way through a first term with only 628 days left until the 2012 presidential election -- the Democrat can only tie any conceivable Republican candidate.

    The GOP doesn't even need a frontrunner to catch the incumbent of the most powerful political office in the world. No wonder Obama's bringing fresh blood into the White House and shipping out aides to kick-start the billion-dollar campaign back in Chicago.

    A new Gallup Poll finds Obama a little worse off in that generic presidential ballot category this year than he was last year at this time.

    Did you notice that, right up there at the top of the article, it says, "POLITICAL COMMENTARY FROM ANDREW MALCOLM ?"

    That means that the article is HIS OPINION.

    Except for the cited Gallup poll which is linked.

    Yes. Obama loses to a generic GOP candidate, but wipes the floor with each of the actual potential candidates. He even leads Chris Christie by double digits in New Jersey.

    What is an "Independent" like riddler, doing posting a thread like this?
    This is the kind of thread a partisan REPUBLICAN would post.
