Bill Clinton beat an incumbent HW Bush based on these economic statistics: "it's the economy Stupid" was the memorable slogan... In 1992: 7.5% unemployment 5.8% growth of GDP 3.0% inflation Based on the above "It's the Economy, Stupid" Clinton was elected... In 2011: 9.0% unemployment Worse then 1992 3.9% growth of GDP Less GDP growth then 1992 3.2% inflation today Higher Inflation then 1992 So why is Obama supposedly leading in the polls EVEN when more people say the economy sucks? A) Some people don't want to admit they were wrong. B) Because he is Black some people are afraid to remove him BECAUSE they would be called racist! C) The MSM wants Obama to be re-elected... so much so they constantly stack the polling data by having more Democrats/leaning Democrat Independents-- then GOP!
