The Mitt Romney comeback begins



In a poll of New Hampshire voters, Republican voters show Mitt Romney would dominate other Republicans. Once they added Romney's name to the list, no other Republican candidate tops 10%

More good news on the job front.

Jobless claims fall to lowest level since early 2006

Quote:
The number of Americans filing new claims for unemployment benefits fell to the lowest level in nearly 8-1/2 years last week, suggesting the labor market recovery was gaining traction.

Initial claims for state unemployment benefits declined 19,000 to a seasonally adjusted 284,000 for the week ended July 19, the Labor Department said on Thursday.

That was the lowest level since February 2006, and confounded economists' expectations for a rise to 308,000.

The prior week's claims were revised to show 1,000 more applications received than previously reported.

The four-week average of claims, considered a better gauge of labor market trends as it irons out week-to-week volatility, fell 7,250 to 302,000, the lowest level since May 2007.
......

Employment has grown by more than 200,000 jobs in each of the last five months, a stretch not seen since the late 1990s.
