Barkley to Romney: 'You're going down'

Charles Barkley says Barack Obama to beat Mitt Romney like a drum

Outspoken NBA analyst Charles Barkley is already calling November's election in favor of President Barack Obama.

Never one to shy away from giving an opinion on any subject, Barkley trash-talked the presumptive Republican nominee Sunday night after TNT showed Romney in the stands in Boston at the Celtics-Hawks playoff game.

"Mitt Romney. Listen, main man, we're going to beat you like a drum in November. Don't take it personally. You seem like a nice guy. But you're going down, bro," Barkley said.

The Hall of Famer is a big supporter of Obama, though national polls indicate the former Massachusetts governor has a much better chance at the White House than Barkley believes.

A USA Today/Gallup poll of 12 swing states released Monday found Romney trailing the president 47 percent to 45 percent, within the poll's margin of error.
