America’s Jobless Will Decide the Election
The second presidential debate kicked off with a question from a 20-year-old college student. He asked the candidates how each would improve his prospects for landing a job after graduation. If only the candidates and the moderator had stayed focused on jobs, the election might have been decided right there on Long Island.
It’s now increasingly clear that jobless Americans will decide the November election.
Let’s look at some numbers.
In the nine, hotly contested battleground states — including Florida, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Wisconsin — the presidential candidates are neck-and-neck. And in each of these states, the number of jobless citizens is larger than the spread between the two candidates. See the numbers for yourself here.
Put simply, America’s jobless can single-handedly change the outcome of this election.
Both candidates are working hard to attract these voters
Thus far, however, Republican Mitt Romney has done little to show what specifically he’d do to boost job growth. And his party continues to stand in the way of congressional action on the issue.
Come November 6th, let’s make sure our voices are heard. Remember to Bee Mad @ the GOP!
