C-Minus Obama Beating Romney

One of the interesting insights from the latest Reuters/Ipsos poll is that Barack Obama has gotten a grade (from the poll respondents) and it's pretty mediocre: Obama is a C-minus president.

But in spite of that, Obama's good enough to poll ahead of Mitt Romney. In fact, Obama continues to widen his lead of Mitt, who at this point probably needs to sit down and evaluate just why he isn't connecting with any voters outside the desperate denizens of the Republican Party. Since the Republicans are a minority of the USA, Mitt will need more than those people to win—and the problem has been that so far he just isn't inspiring the Republican base, or anybody else, to be that excited about his candidacy.
