EURweb is reporting that roughly 51 percent of Americans expect President Obama to lose his 2012 re-election bid, according to the results of a new CNN-Opinion Research Corp. poll. The new poll finds that 26 percent of registered voters will definitely vote for Obama in the 2012 election, and another 23 percent will probably vote for him. Thirty-five percent said that they will not vote for him, and 16 percent said that they probably will not.

The same thing was said about President Bill Clinton before he was re-elected, so polls like this aren't unusual. However, it does mean that Obama has serious work to do if he plans on winning the upcoming election.
