  1. For President Obama, this is the Season of Doubt.

    There is in the American air — some 13 months away from the 2012 election — a whiff of suggestion that Obama might not be re-elected. Or re-electable.

    A recent poll reveals that most Americans — 55 percent — believe Obama will be a one-term president. On hearing the results, Obama told ABC News: “I’m used to being an underdog.”

    Another survey by CNN reveals that if the 2012 presidential election were to be held today, Obama would narrowly beat Republican hopefuls Ron Paul (by a mere 4 percentage points) and Rick Perry (by 5 points), and he would be neck and neck with Mitt Romney. And, according to Gallup’s most recent weekly approval rating average, Obama’s approval rating is around 41 percent today.

    "Since the poll shows that voters tend to support candidates based more on how they ‘feel’ about them and less on whether they line up on the issues," write James Oliphant and Kim Geiger in the Los Angeles Times, "that’s a worrisome trend for Obama."

    Uh-oh. Underdog. Worrisome trend. Are the storm clouds of uncertainty gathering over the Obama presidency? Is the once-popular Illinois politician headed for defeat in 2012? Is the next “Change We Can Believe In” perhaps — what only a few months ago would have been unbelievable — a change of the guard? And is it really possible that the “Yes We Can” man can get not only panned, but canned?
