A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that almost half of all voters would NOT vote for President Obama if he was running for election today, 49% say they would be unlikely to vote for the president’s reelection vs. the 45% of adults say they would be at least somewhat likely to vote for Obama if he was up for reelection right now. Obama carried 53% of the vote nationally over Republican candidate John McCain’s 46% in last November’s election. Among the key independent bloc , those not at all likely to vote for the president’s reelection have a two-to-one advantage over those who would be very likely to support him. [...]

Don't believe it. [...]

The race for governor in New Jersey is so close in final polls that it may well end up in a recount — the 1981 election did and was decided by less than 1,800 votes. If there is a recount, you can bet disputes about absentee ballots will loom large. Moreover, if serious allegations of fraud emerge, you can also expect less-than-vigorous investigation by the Obama Justice Department — which showed just how seriously it takes such allegations when it walked away from an open-and-shut voter intimidation case against the New Black Panther Party in Philadelphia earlier this year.
