Is Assad's re-election a done deal?

Syrians around the world are casting their early ballots in a presidential election scheduled for this Tuesday. For months there has been a growing sense that the tide is turning in Bashar al-Assad’s favor.

As Middle East correspondent for National Public Radio, Deborah Amos has reported extensively on Syria from inside and out. She joined CNN’s Hala Gorani, sitting in for Christiane Amanpour, for an election preview.

    CNN is so Jewish. US Navy thieves. Stealing AK47's. Grand theft. I'll chop your hands off. Terrific democracy in Libya, Eygpt, Syria, Ukraine, Russia...What a waste of time, Christianne Amanpour. Hows your war criminal husband, James Rubin ? Life is a gift.

    I am able to watch all videos posted under Amanpour's page. But this one does not open! Is it removed? Why?

    the old problem is people don't believe they can win elections. Nobody stands.

    But if they cannot win elections it is doubtful that they can win by force. So in the case of Syria U.S. must literally install the opposition to get rid of Assad. Funny.

    Election is all about public support and numbers. That is also the same in order to succeed in an armed revolution.

    I think Assad is trying to sort of put up.

    But as I understand the conflict in Syria is sectarian-religious in nature. So I think they are nowhere the end of a war of attrition. And 150,000 dead is nothing yet.

    73% Voter turnout is better than the USA ever had.
