Sorry, but with official unemployment at 8+%, and real terms unemployment maybe 17%, and 4$ - $5 per gallon gasoline, does not make for a good economy.

I mean, it's no thanks to outrageous Defense spending as well as the spending to uphold corrupt bureaucracies like DHS...spending that has been constantly perpetrated by Republicans...

Obama is the President.  Those not happy with the economy will not be looking at GWB, they will be looking at BHO.

He'll get pretty damn close to 60%, but he won't break it.

Not unless he changes as a candidate. Whites won't vote Obama, of course, but if turnout is depressed then black Alabama will give him a low 40s showing.

I saiy no. McCain just barely hit 60% last time around, and I don't think Romney would outperform him in any southern state, except maybe North Carolina.

I think Republicans are going to get 60%+ of the vote in Alabama in every presidential election for at least the next couple of decades. The Yellow Dog Dems are dying off. Their grandchildren have grown up being told the Democratic Party is the party of welfare and abortion and sharia law.

In the long term, I think you're going to see the "central" South (Mississippi, Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana, Tennessee) trending more Republican. The "outer" South (Virginia, the Carolinas) will continue to trend Democratic.

A tossup.  While it won't really matter, Alabama is likely to swing more than the national swing.  If Romney is close to a victory nationally, it'll energize the base vote to come out and vote against Obama so they can say they were a part of defeating him.  If Romney isn't close, the base in Alabama will find other things to do election day.

Probably not. 59% maybe, because many Republicans will stay home.

It depends in my view on if his VP can energize the base which is something Romney badly needs.
