EVENTS IN PAKISTAN The Recent News
The Bin-Laden effect Not as big as you might think (this isn’t 2004) Terrorism was a minor issue in 2008 and not a factor in 2010 No Republican hopefuls are running on “foreign policy”
Foreign Policy Bumps are Fleeting
Like Father, Like Son
The Economy Will be the big event in 2012, this event will be too far removed on Election Day
BETTING ON OBAMA The odds in 2012
Incumbency The Last incumbents who lost were – 1992 – 1980 – 1976 He is facing no primary challenger
Campaign Finance $1,000,000,000 Citizens United Money as well This alone discourages most challengers
The Electoral College
Popular on the Left Strong Support Among Democrats Very popular among key constituencies Policies are popular, and he is personally popular
Popularity on the Happy Side of 50%
Signs of Economic Growth Unemployment peaked in October 2009 (10.1%) Increase in consumer confidence
THE 2012 ELECTION Four Scenarios
Going In to 2012 Both Parties are optimistic Unknowns – The Economy – The Republican Nominee – Seats in the House and Senate
Scenario 1: The Status Quo Little Change in either the House or Senate A “personal victory” for Obama (e.g. 1984) Good odds of this happening
Scenario 2: An Emerging Democratic Majority Coincides with an Obama victory The Democrats take back the House, expand lead in the Senate A return to the Obama Coalition.
Scenario 3: A Republican Congress GOP keeps the House The GOP Surges in the Senate This leads to full-scale battle between the President and Congress
Scenario 4: A Republican Sweep The GOP maintains the House Gains 4 in the Senate Wins the Presidency Very Unlikely
2012 A Presidential Election The Republicans
Who Might Run against Obama? Candidates need to decide if this is their window Who runs depends on what happens in the next 6 months
Old Foes from 2008
Crazies and Long shots
Turning back to the Clock to 1994
RUNNING THE NUMBERS The Electoral College Still Favors the Democrats
A Republican Win: Step 1
A Republican Win Step 2
A Republican Win Step 3
A Republican Win Step 4
This will be very difficult to achieve!
