The Examiner has a study posted on the relative employment recovery performance of states who elected new governors since 2010.
States that elected a Republican governor have seen unemployment drop an average of 1.35 percent. Michigan saw a 2.4 percent improvement.
States that elected a Democrat governor have seen unemployment drop an average of 0.95 percent. New York saw a 0.4 percent increase in its unemployment rate.
The states in the survey with Republican governors are creating jobs at a rate 50 percent faster that states led by Democrats. Almost all of the so-called swing states (except Colorado) are in the R column in this survey. Do you think this may have some effect this November?
Is it 12:01 pm, 20 January, 2013, yet?
