Default Re: Unemployment Drops Below 8%, Conservatives Cry Conspiracy

The U-6 umeployment rate which the BLS describes as: Total unemployed, plus all persons marginally attached to the labor force, plus total employed part time for economic reasons, as a percent of the civilian labor force plus all persons marginally attached to the labor force. IMO this is the most telling and "true" unemployment rate. It's actually higher now than when Obama took office. After Obama's poor debate performance and this abysmal jobs report I see Romney picking up more than a few points in Ohio and Florida. Some polls already show Romney leading in Florida by two points.
