California (US), Oct. 6 (ANI): California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has predicted that President Barack Obama will win re-election in two years time, especially if the Republican Party re-takes control of the House of Representatives in the November mid-term elections.
"I assume that Obama will get a second term in office," Schwarzenegger said in an interview with DER SPIEGEL, the German news magazine.
Politico further quoted him as saying that he didn't believe the GOP will succeed in finding a viable candidate to beat Obama in 2012.
Schwarzenegger, the two-term Republican whose term expires in January, said the loss of Democrats' House majority in next month's election would bolster Obama's chances for a second term.
"Obama can watch this casually, knowing that afterwards he will be in a much better position," he said.
The Hollywood star-turned-governor hasn't been shy about tweaking fellow Republicans, especially since Obama took office 20 months ago. (ANI)
