In our New Year's poll, when asked what news event they fear most about 2012, Americans by a margin of two-to-one said Obama's reelection. Only 16 percent said they fear the Democrat won't win a second term, while 33 percent said they fear four more years.I hope the 2 to 1 figure is true, but the article refutes itself. First it says 2 of 3 Americans fear Obama's reelection, but only 33% (1 in 3) fear four more years. That doesn't make sense.

The next biggest worry is that we will have higher taxes. It would appear that almost any Republican can beat Barack Obama, but that is illusory. First, Obama has the backing of the mainstream press, who will propagandize in his favor. Second, the Republican candidates are wonderful at screwing up golden opportunities. As Rush pointed out today, Newt Gingrich's current attacks on Mitt Romney over Bain Capital sound like arguments from the left.
