Reading the Pres. Obama Barometer

We'll look at how President Barack Obama is faring- from the Oval Office to the campaign trail. In his book The Audacity of Hope, then-Sen. Obama called for a new brand of politics. In 2008, his supporters expressed their audacity of hope, by voting for a new brand of leadership. Two years on, are voters getting what they had hoped for? Instead of hope and change, has the president served up decline and despair? Some supporters are wondering what happened to the man who offered change by way of a new kind of governing. We’ll discuss what voters want, and what it would take for President Obama to earn another term in the White House.

We'll be joined by political strategist Dorie Clark, Clark University political science professor and NAACP Worcester Branch president Ravi Perry, and Ted Widmer, the director of the John Carter Brown Library at Brown University.
