*Roughly 51 percent of Americans expect President Obama to lose his 2012 re-election bid, a new CNN/ Opinion Research Corporation poll has found.
Fewer — 46 percent — said they expect the president to win re-election.
While that seems like bad news, it’s important to consider this bit of context: When the same question was asked in 1995, 65 percent of Americans expected President Bill Clinton to lose his re-election bid, and just 24 percent said he would win. Clinton, of course, went on to win a second term.
The new poll finds that 26 percent of registered voters will definitely vote for President Obama in the 2012 election, and another 23 percent will probably vote for him. Thirty-five percent said they will not vote for him, and 16 percent they will probably not.
