Barack Obama hasn't even been sworn in yet, but some have already guessed that his days as president will be numbered to one term. According to a panel of New York Times White House reporters, if Obama's plan to save the economy doesn't work, he has little chance of winning a second term. In addition, the economy's demand for attention could likely cause Obama to abandon his campaign promises, like universal healthcare and environmental regulations, bringing down his popularity.
During the campaign, Obama's legion of supporters definitely had high expectation for real change. Still, I think many will maintain a little patience considering the onslaught of challenges facing the new president. It's probably way too early to ask, but do you think these reporters are right about Obama's high risk of losing in 2012?
