These numbers are for all us market watchers and political wonks. Most people couldn’t tell you what the unemployment rate is or even who the vice president is [lucky bastards]. What they can tell you is if THEY have a job. Weather their family members or neighbors have jobs. Weather their home is worth more than it was four years ago. Weather they have more money in their pockets at the end of the month. How they relate those things to voting on Nov. 6... we’ll see. In the meantime, they can spin “the numbers” all they want... left and right. People know what they know.
“Most people couldnt tell you what the unemployment rate is or even who the vice president is [lucky bastards].”
Blissful ignorance, it’s everywhere.
