Are you kidding? Nearly worked for Carter?! That was just what the Left-stream media imagined! Carter got totally shellacked!!! I have a hunch that Obama will as can do only so much with dissembling and spitballs. the University of Colorado Poli Sci. Dept. has successfully predicted results since the 1980 election-- they see Romney winning 53-47-- a route, really.

I get the electoral college point...I expect Romney to win there also. That is an anachronism that needs to be undone, frankly.

As Buchanan points out in the article (which you probably did not read), Carter was ahead in all the polls until the last debate. That is when things changed. Do you really think Romney will come over as Reagan-like in a debate?

BTW, the popular vote isn't want matters. It is the Electoral College vote and Obama has that in the bag.

Both the 20th and 21st centuries have seen failed presidencies.

William Howard Taft lost in 1912, though he might have retained office had not his old friend and former leader Theodore Roosevelt run as a third party Bull Moose candidate and won more votes than Taft.

Herbert Hoover failed through no fault of his own. The Crash of 1929 and the Great Depression were beyond his control, and every remedy he tried failed adequately to work.

Had the popular Cal Coolidge sought a second full term in 1928 instead of declaring, "I do not choose to run,"...
