President Obama is facing an uphill battle going into the November election against Mitt Romney. If you look at the way past presidential elections have gone, he may have a hard time getting a landslide victory.
Since 1916, only seven presidents have won a second term and their margin of victory has steadily declined. In 1972, President Richard Nixon won re-election by 23 points, and in 2004 President Bush won a second term by only 2.5 points.
How hard will it be for President Obama to win a second term, and what will he be able to accomplish if reelected?
Ryan Lizza, CNN contributor and Washington correspondent for "The New Yorker," spoke with a number of White House insiders to get a look at what a potential second term for President Obama would look like. He talks with Soledad this morning on "Starting Point" and says the second half might include major tax reform.
