November has begun, and that means the next presidential election is just one year away. President Obama’s approval numbers are lower than they have ever been, and the crowded GOP field remains unsettled. As state parties joust with each other over the timing of their presidential primaries, the campaign plays out against the backdrop of a weak economy and deep voter dissatisfaction with federal politics. Can President Obama’s numbers improve? When will a clear frontrunner emerge from the Republican field?

Today at 12:30, Thomas Mann will take your questions about the state of play in the presidential race one year out, in a live web chat moderated by Vivyan Tran of POLITICO.
