I don't understand why this is still so close. The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Thursday shows
- Mitt Romney with 46% of the vote to Obama's 45%
- 49% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the president's job performance. Forty-nine percent (49%) at least somewhat disapprove
Gallup: "Americans prefer President Obama over Mitt Romney for handling healthcare, while Romney is favored on the deficit and the two are about tied on unemployment."
Obama's New Attack on Romney: Romney's Policies Were An Economic Failure Because Massachusetts' Unemployment Rate Was 4.7% —Ace
Romney's policies did not produce enough jobs.
Merely full employment (5% is usually considered full employment).
Vote for the guy who's had a 8+% unemployment record for three and a half years.The guy with the worst 30 months of employment in 25 years.
See, that's the guy you should trust on job creation.
The 8+% guy.
And, by the way, the unemployment rate is not 8%.It's really 11%.
So vote for 11% unemployment guy. This 4.7% unemployment guy is obviously some kind of incompetent parvenu.
Bloomberg, this morning:
The number of American applying for unemployment insurance payment rose to a five-week high, a sign progress in reducing joblessness may be stalling.
First-time claims for jobless benefits increased by 10,000 to 383,000 last week, Labor Department figures showed today.
BUT But but... just four years ago March, when the economy shed 80,000 jobs and the unemployment rate "SURGED" from 4.8 to 5.1 percent, dhimmedia said it was "dismal ... about as bad as one could expect."
Tomorrow we'll see the report everyone's been waiting for, the unemployment rate for May. Can you wait?
