FROM CNN's Jack Cafferty:
As the Republican candidates keep tearing each other apart, President Obama may want to start worrying about November - if he hasn't already.
New Gallup state-by-state polling on the president's approval rating suggests he might be in trouble.
Overall, President Obama averaged a 44% job approval in his third year in office - down from 47% in his second year.
According to gallup, his approval rating declined from 2010 to 2011 in 47 of the 50 states. Not good.
The president's approval rating was above 50% last year in only 10 states plus the District of Columbia.
Gallup suggests that the state approval rating could provide some clues into how President Obama will fare in the electoral college.
If the president were to carry only the states where more people approved than disapproved of him last year, he would lose to the Republican nominee 323 to 215. That's landslide territory.
And Politico reports on several additional factors working against the president.
The congressional budget office says unemployment is likely to climb to 9% by the election.
There's polling that shows President Obama tied or trailing Mitt Romney in key swing states.
And there's growing evidence that the idea that the president will raise a lot more money than the Republicans just isn't true.
Of course there are still nine months to go before the election; and we don't know yet who the Republican nominee will be, or if there will be a third party candidate - which could work to Mr. Obama's advantage.
Here’s my question to you: How worried should President Obama be about winning a second term?
Interested to know which ones made it on air?
David in Virginia:
He should be very worried. When your performance in leading the country is so bad, and you can only blame your predecessor and vilify your likely successor, people start to wonder, "Four more years of what?" That's where I am. This hasn't worked and if he is re-elected, there is no reason to think anything would change.
George in Italy:
Obama should not worry about winning a second term, the Republican candidates are strange beings. We should be the ones worrying and afraid.
Jack, He should be concerned as all incumbents should be. However, he is in a position no president since FDR has had to face. And, he has been facing a do-nothing Congress of historic proportions with half of it deliberately blocking every bill that has been proposed to help jobs and the economy. It is amazing what he has done without their help.
Dave in Phoenix:
As an independent voter, I cannot see how. The Republican Party is clearly anything but pro-American anymore. Pro-white, pro-religion, pro-rich people, but not pro-American.
Solyndra, Fast and Furious, trillions in debt, unemployment unchanged. If President Obama is not shaking in his boots, then he should be. Also, he promotes class warfare and envy towards rich folks, except the ones who give billions to his campaign.
If Romney is Obama's opponent, the president has nothing to worry about. Mitt Romney is a dolt, a vapid man with very few ideas and the stage presence of a Greek column. Obama is beatable, but not by this guy.
