Poll: Can Obama be reelected?

Recent commentary from Ed Morrissey:

That’s not a silver lining, it’s a pair of lead electoral shoes. In politics, we have a term for incumbents who can only get 36% in re-elect polls: former officeholders. Voters already know the incumbents, which is why undecideds break heavily towards challengers. In a deep-blue state like Pennsylvania, a 36% is going to mean a blowout for Obama in all the wrong ways.
