Good News for Obama?

Gingrich’s victory in South Carolina may have halted the straightforward march of Romney towards the Republican nomination (his tax return probably hasn’t helped either…). While the Newt’s renaissance may be halted in Florida it seems as though this has contributed to a lightening of the mood in the Obama camp…

On a serious note the editorial in today’s Telegraph looking into the chances of Obama securing a second term ahead of the State of the Union address is interesting.

It examines the relationship between the economy and the success or failure of Presidential re- election bids and draws interesting parallels with Bush Snr’s re- election campaign back in 1992.
