It's not hard to find signs that President Barack Obama is destined for a single term. Unemployment continues to hover at 9 percent, and a June poll from American Research Group says 39 percent of Americans disapprove of how he has handled the economy, which 71 percent of registered voters say will be "extremely or very important." When asked whom they'd vote for in the 2012 presidential election, 47 percent said the "Republican Party's candidate for president," as opposed to the 39 percent who would support Obama.
