Rove says Obama likely to be defeated 2012…?

June 24, 2011

Carol Rove, ex-Bush presidential advisor and chief of staff (2000-2007) turned op-ed commentator  for the Wall Street Journal and Newsweek columnist and author wrote on Wednesday that President Barack Obama  is likely to be defeated in 2012. He named four threats to his re-election campaign centered on a weak economy, less support from key groups in 2008 gone sour, his defense of unpopular policies and the bad strategic decisions he has made.

Also,  he wrote that President Obama’s approval rating has dropped 20 points among Latinos, one of the groups he alleged  support has gone sour, including African-Americans where he states,  ” if their share of the turnout drops just one point in North Carolina, Mr. Obama’s 2008 winning margin there is wiped out two and a half times over.”
