Economists expect the unemployment rate -- a key focus in the neck-and-neck race for the White House -- to tick up by a tenth of a percentage point to 7.9 percent, reversing part of a surprise drop seen in September.

They got that artificially low Sept. percentage by witholding California's bad numbers. Then a few weeks later, they quietly added CA's numbers in and revised the total figure but never released the new percentage.
I seriously question that 7.9%. This regime is not to be trusted.

Carter's unemployment rate was 7.5% when he lost his reelection bid so I hope Obama has the same fate as his unemployment rate is 7.9% and the real unemployment rate is 14.6%.

The percentage of eligible workers who are *underemployed* or have given up is 40%!
