. 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.
U-6 True Unemployment Rate
why not just throw cats and dogs in that percentage to just to make it higher? since when did part time employment become unemployment. this is the exact reasons why i hate politics people like to twist facts and make false impressions. and then go into microsoft office, fill in a chart and think you have a point
