Rush Limbaugh predicted several months ago that a win over Obama was doable and ‘landslidable.’ Today he pointed to the polls in battleground states and an article in the Washington Examiner with Conn Carroll saying “More than a third of Americans now believe that President Obama’s policies are hurting the economy, and confidence in his ability to create jobs is sharply eroding among his base,…”

“So while the national polls are useful in gauging the president’s popularity, the more instructive numbers are those from the battlegrounds. Those polls are even more ominous for the president: In every reputable battleground state poll conducted over the past month, Obama’s support is weak. In most of them, he trails Republican front-runner Mitt Romney. For all the talk of a closely fought 2012 election, if Obama can’t turn around his fortunes in states such as Michigan and New Hampshire, next year’s presidential election could end up being a GOP landslide.” National Journal.
