Reduced Obama Enthusiasm = Romney Presidency?
Four years ago there was great excitement in the air and many Americans shared strong feelings that they were going to be part of history by casting a vote for Barack Obama, an eloquent speaker, political superstar, and first black president of the United States. People cried at campaign rallies upon hearing his message of hope and change. They recalled having goosebumps casting their vote and saw a brighter future on the horizon.
Fast forward to today, and the presidential election feels much different. The economy has been struggling. Food and oil prices have climbed appreciably, as has the cost of healthcare. The excitement surrounding Obama has been tempered greatly. This may be enough to give Romney the 2012 election.
