Democrats Grew 42 Million private jobs since 1961. Republicans only 24 Million.
Democrats Always Create More Jobs!!
If you had ten words to talk the final undecided voters off the cliff, what would they be?

Final polls by Ipsos/Reuters Swing State Tracking show that Independents, far more than either Democrats or Republicans are worried about jobs--(and everyone's worried about the economy.) The numbers are really clear that independents want to know who's going to help them get a job. In Virginia 36% of independents cite jobs as one of their biggest concerns, it's 36% in Ohio, 23% in Florida--where, (interesting!), education's third with 11%, and nothing except economy registers in Colorado.

So, here are my suggestions for those memes--one with thanks to Bill Clinton's Amazing DNC Speech.

1. Since 1961 Democrats created 42 Million private jobs, Republicans only 24 Million.

2. Since 1940, it's Democrats 67 Million Jobs, Republicans 35 Million. Links to data tables at Graph is from great app for your smartphone and a great website.

Back of Information card from, Chart is from, as wonderful election app you can put on your smartphone.
Since 1930, every time Democrats take office, jobs go up. Everytime, including Reagan, when Republicans take office, job creation goes down.
3. More Democrats = More Jobs!!

Since 1940, in nine terms each, The U.S has created just over 100 million jobs. Republicans created 35 million, Democrats created 67 Million.

And, debt, let me tell you about debt!

4. Republicans last balanced a budget under Dwight Eisenhower!!

5. Since 1962, Republicans are Zero for Twenty-Eight balancing budgets!

6. Democrats have balanced four out of their last seven budgets! (Clinton's last four.)

7. Obama's reduced the yearly deficit 23% in three fiscal years.

I'm sure you have your favorites. Fire away.

Get out the vote!

Seal the deal.

Call for Democracy.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
