Barack Obama seems to feel pretty confident about his chances of securing another four years at the White House. Obama made his way to New York City, bringing with him the kind of gridlock and public transportation detours that former presidents did only about half as often as he has.
And during his standard fundraising stint, he did what Obama does best – talk about the accomplishments of Obama.
At the event, held at the NoMad Hotel, Obama said, “So the upshot is if the election were held today, I think it would be close, but I think we’d win,” adding, “If I can say that every single day for the next 99 days, then we will be able to embark on the next phase of this journey.”
Obama claimed that his first three years were basically a restructuring, and only now that we are approaching re-election time is the housing marketing “starting to tick back up again.”
The latest polls agree with Obama; they place him ahead of Romney by a few points on average. And finding a single poll that actually puts Romney in the top spot is a rare thing indeed. What many experts agree with is that this election will come down to voter turnout.
