Unemployment rate poll

The unemployment rate fell to 7.8% in September. What’s your take on this?

http://finance.yahoo.com/news/multim...192849572.html

Bottom right of page.


Current numbers:

It assures President Obama's re-election (8604)
9%

It's proof the economy is improving (21280)
22%

It's temporary, the worst isn't over (11403)
12%


I don't trust the numbers (55030)
57%

It's likely indicative of people who were looking for work giving up, in combination with some of those people finding jobs.

Looks like 57% so far agree with you.

Jack Welch is a man whose opinion I personally regard highly, and he's not buying it...

maybe even flintlicker will be able to discern the falsehoods in this report, and then again maybe not

Nothing more than a monumental all out failed attempt at an October surprise.

Lou Dobbs was laughing at this earlier on Fox. Still an iconic executive, Welch is getting old.
