In this new PPI Political Memo, I survey the tricky political terrain President Obama must cross to win reelection, regardless of who his opponent is. Obama faces not only pervasive economic discontent, but also an electorate that's grown more conservative, and more independent since 2008. The memo also identifies three key strategic imperatives for progressives as they pick their way past these daunting but surmountable structural obstacles.
I hope you find it of interest, and welcome your comments.
