    Bloomberg NewsFrom extra shifts at auto and steel plants in Ohio to office buildings rising in Northern Virginia, the geography of the U.S. economic rebound is providing an edge to President Barack Obama’s re-election.

    The unemployment rates in a majority of the 2012 battleground states are lower than the national average as those economies improve. Coupled with the growth of adult minority populations in those states, the trends create a higher bar for presumed Republican Party presidential nominee Mitt Romney in his quest to unseat Obama.

    “There are jobs out there,” said Chris McGiffen, 47, of Zanesville, Ohio, who moved to the state in 2010 from St. Louis to look for work. He found a job as a welder at Columbus Castings, a steel foundry that makes products such as undercarriages for railroad cars, he said.

    Nine states switched from supporting Republican President George W. Bush in 2004 to Democrat Obama in 2008. Leaving out Indiana, which both sides say is leaning Republican after supporting Obama four years ago, the remaining eight are again shaping up as the central election battleground.

    Those eight states -- Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Nevada, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio and Virginia -- have a combined 101 electoral votes. Romney must win at least 79 of those electoral votes to prevail if all other states run true to their 2004 and 2008 partisan preferences.

    It's actually led to some really awkward introductions and verbal contortions as the state level pols talk about how bad the "Obama economy" is but how great their state is doing. icon_lol.gif

    Beleive me, In my state the economy has nothing to do with what the democraps or democunts (since we are name calling on this thread) are doing. It has all turned around because or the reforms Scott Walker and the conservative Senate and Assembly have done to create jobs and turn Wisconsins economy around. All the democrats have done is try to obstruct and piss and moan about it instead of work with and support whats good for our state.

    Sorry, but you must have been watching Fox too long. Pity, and at such a young age. You must be duped by a bad element up there in Wisconsin...like that m0cktwinkle asshat. It's the GOP that has been obstructionist AND trying to blame it on the Democrats.

    Right-Wing Media Cover Up Senate Republicans' Obstructionism

    Alas, another "conservapussie" member has been smoked out of their hiding place and into the burning light of the truth.

    You mis-read my statement. I am talking about what is happening is my state when i am referring to the do-nothing democrats. It has been here in my state the dems have been obstructionistas....the illegal fleeing 14 senators to Illinois, the democrats blockage of a mining bill and thousands of jobs, the cherry picking recall of republican state senators, the non-issue recall of a sitting governor, the democratic judges holding up voter ID law, the mayor of Milwaukee spreading lie after lie about Walkers reforms...i can go on and on.

    Please watch on June 5th if you have any concern for the direction this country might go. All the news media will be here because they know how enormous this election is for the future of the country possibly.

    How tragic for you then that the latest polls show Walker sinking as the public learns more about his corruption. Barrett has pulled within a half percentage point.


    How tragic for you that you can't stay on topic. Walker wins this election, I know Barrett will be ahead to start because there is already mass fraud going on with early voting and out-of-state vans taking inner city people to vote. (90,000 votes cast in first 3 days mainly in liberal Milwaukee and The peoples republic of Madison).

    Care to make a bet? If Barrett wins I will never post in the forums again, if Walker wins you will never post again.

    I only know what the news reports. As for your infantile bet, here's my counter-offer. Walker wins, you never post again. Barrett wins, you kill yourself.

    Fair?


    Must be that caring and compassionate side of the democraps shining through again. What a shame you have to live with your hate for other humans.
