    I hope it resonates with voters and helps to GOTV.

    There couldn't be a much stronger contrast between administrations. We now have more jobs and less war. What could be a more stark contrast?

      to see a robust jobs number for June and upward revisions for May and April.

      If we can maintain momentum in the jobs market, and get that unemployment number under 6 % by September or October....it could give the dems a boost.

      The President is out on the stump around the country, making it clear that he wants an increase in minimum wage, and transportation bill jobs ...infrastructure jobs.

      And he is not hesitating to point out who is blocking everything....the GOP.

      He is doing exactly what folks on here have demanded for months.
      He will continue to do it.  Immigration talks breaking down is the last straw for him.
      The GOP needs to made to feel the heat for obstruction.
      Make the contrast so clear by November that the indys will have a choice.....do-nothing or vote dem.

      president since WW2" and the pushing of other popularity depressing themes.

      How were the rankings for "worst president since ww2" during the W Bush years? Oh there was never such a poll before this week? Do tell.
