Here is one chart where a downward trend is a good thing. It’s also the chart you might want to show to anyone who tries to tell you that: a) the Recovery Act did not make a difference or b) the economy is not improving.
In terms of metrics, when jobless claims fall below the 400,000 threshold, it’s considered evidence of an improving jobs landscape, and when the number drops below 370,000, it suggests jobs are being created rather quickly. We’ve now been below the 370,000 threshold 10 of the last 15 weeks.
The Romney camp will be pushing one thing and one thing only over the last few weeks of the campaign. The economy. Mitt Romney’s only chance of winning this election will not revolve around his policy statements on immigration or his binders full of women or his beliefs on contraception and abortion or even his naive and simplistic thoughts on foreign policy. As important as these issues are, they’re not the game changers. The state of the economy is. If Romney can convince enough people that a slow-recovering economy is a direct result of Obama’s policies, he’s got a real chance at victory.
Romney and his Super PACs are going to spend hundreds of millions over the next two weeks bombarding the airwaves with ads, trying to convince swing state voters that the economy is not recovering. If they are successful in pushing that false narrative to low-information voters, watch out. Your worst nightmares could come true.
Never underestimate the power of what a sustained torrent of lies and fear combined with unlimited cash can do to the minds and hearts of the uninformed.`
