Nine Economic Facts That May Determine Tuesday's Election

This article highlights 9 economic factors that probably affect most voters.

Things like jobs, home values, gasoline prices, PPACA (ObamaCare), etc. may very well be on the minds of people when they are in the voting booth.

Many who are or have recently been on public assistance most likely had a better economic life a few short years ago.

The unemployment money and the food stamps are not enough to keep people going the way they were.

Obama promises the same promises as he did 4 years ago.

Romney says he will do better.

Will people still believe ?

Other things like foreign policy may be secondary, but the recent debacle in Libya and the protests in more than 20 other countries as a result of that "video" that was initially blamed and then not blamed are also on people's minds. Some people wonder if all the violence from the video would have even happened if the Administration hadn't mentioned it in the first place ? That video was released months before the Benghazi attack and no one was shouting then.

Suspicions are heavy on many fronts in the eyes of many Americans. Lots of unanswered questions.

In 2008, 70 million voted for Obama and 60 million voted for McCain.

What will the numbers be in 2012 ?

NO incumbent can possibly win with an unemployment rate at 8%, polling under 50%, massive scandals, total failure on all levels.

I say....Elections cancelled...Martial Law declared by then.Major Disaster Declaration

Eight counties in New Jersey -- Atlantic County, Cape May County, Essex County, Hudson County, Middlesex County, Monmouth County, Ocean County and Union County -- were given major disaster declarations by President Obama, allowing the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to administer federal aid and supplies to affected individuals and municipalities.

It's funny how statistics can be manipulated to portray anything you want. Check out this thread:

Why I am voting for Obama

That thread contains a list of statistics which seems to directly counter most of the statistics that have been reported here. Funny that isn't it.

Is Obama destroying the economy or fixing the economy? Who can really know for sure with all this propaganda, just look around you and see for yourself.

Good points.

But this election is all about perception, not necessarily "reality".

But then again, "reality" for most of the newer "people on assistance" since 2008 is going to be measured by what their standards of living was compared to what it is today.

Millions of those voters have had their incomes chopped and channeled. In fact many are not happy with the chicken feed assistance. They want the jobs back with a normal life, not the sympathy.

The jobs problem has lingered for too long.

The swing voters who listened to Obama 4 years ago are fed up.
