Lilly Ledbetter index

What are the chances President Obama will win re-election?
I think they go down everytime the "Lilly Ledbetter Act" is mentioned.
Here's an interesting exchange from the Netroots Nation Conference, via the Daily Caller:
He pointed to the Lilly Ledbetter Act, which extended the amount of time people could sue for alleged wage discrimination.
“Frankly we’re a little sick of hearing about that one,”replied moderator Kaili Joy Gray.
Every time Obama mentions Lilly Ledbetter, his chances drop one percent. If he's got to tout a law any Democrat would have signed, he's in trouble. His list of accomplishments isn't enough to fill out a speech.
Certain laws get passed when the presidency changes hands. Lilly Ledbetter is one of them. It's not that big of a deal.
Republicans, everytime you hear the name "Lilly Ledbetter," smile. It means Obama's end is coming soon.
