Chances are, the economy will be better in 2012 and as long as the economy is doing better I see very little chance for the GOP to win.
The news article in the first post of this thread disagrees with your above statement. "The Democratic Party was overwhelmingly rejected by whites, independents and seniors. Perhaps most troubling to Democrats was that increasing numbers of women also turned toward the Republicans. Young voters, so crucial to President Obama's historic victories two years ago, showed up in lower numbers Tuesday, and many more voted Republican than before."
