It will not be difficult for a Republican to defeat President Barack Obama in 2012, despite pundits who say the current crop of potential challengers is too weak, Fox political correspondent Brit Hume says.

Brit Hume, Fox, ObamaConsumer dissatisfaction over the price of gas and goods will be central to how people vote, Hume said on “Fox News Sunday.” If the economy remains the way it is now on election day, Obama doesn’t have a chance.
“If these high gas prices were unaccompanied by higher prices that people are feeling at the grocery store and elsewhere, it wouldn’t be nearly so large a problem,” Hume said.

Hume was blunt in his prognosis for 2012.

“If the election were held today, in my view, Barack Obama would lose,” he said. “He might lose big. Obviously, he’s got some time. Events change. He would lose to any reasonable nominee from the Republican Party. The Republican Party might be able to lose the election if they nominate some extremely colorful freakish candidate.”
