    all the way down to 43-53.  Underwater favorability to at 47-50.  Other polls have not shown this - they reflected a bounce due to gains in Romney's favorability and Republican enthusiasm, not a sudden shift against Obama.

    I strongly suspect this will even out by next Tuesday's poll.

    •  They must buy the argument that Obama (3+ / 0-)

      manipulated the unemployment statistics, then.

      This is what ingratitude looks like.

        •  I'm not sure (0+ / 0-)

          how much of the actual announcement of UI mattes compared to the underlying situation the UI number reflects.

          In other words, the labor market has been getting better the last few months, and at the same time, Obama started taking a pretty commanding lead.  The UI number is a lagging quantification of that better labor market, but as people feel the situation getting better, that is already baked into their approval of the president by the time the numbers are actually announced.

          •  And Obama's approval numbers are steady? (0+ / 0-)

            right?
