Joe Scarborough On Obama: ‘I’d Be Shocked If He Won’

On Friday, Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough took a look at President Barack Obama‘s current place in the polls, assessing that things could be difficult for the President if numbers remain as they are.

After all, he pointed out, Americans have had four years to get to know the President and to gauge whether they support the job he’s doing.

Here’s what he said:

If the President is sitting at 47 percent in the polls, boy, I’d be shocked if he won. I’ve seen he’s in 48 in some of these polls. So that’s my gut. That said, he’s got an incredible ground game and a lot of early voters are coming out and those early voters that are coming out are voting for Barack Obama. So you have… if you’re a behavioralist — and I am too when it comes to these things — if you’re undecided about Barack Obama and you’ve known him for give years and followed him for five years and he’s been on the front page of your newspaper for five years and been on your TV set every night for five years and everybody’s been talking about him for five years and you still don’t know if you’re going to vote for Barack Obama, history would suggest you’re not going to swing in the last ten days.
