    So now statistical deviation from average is also Obama's fault?

    So, we have a 5 cities with over double the national rate, and 7 with less than half. And this tells us what? If you have 5 doom and I have 7 great, does that mean there's no bad news? Or does it just tell us the UE rate isn't uniform?

    Correlation is not cause and effect.

    To bad our own Government is part of the problem, America in general is turning into a big garbage dump with most oblivious to what we are becoming.

    The ones that have Dem's running them are higher in unemployment.

    The ones that have Repubs running them are lower and much lower at that.

    Well, State data for March came out today:
    Lowest ten UE rates (3 ties, so 13 states) and party of Governor:
    1. North Dakota 3.0 R
    2. Nebraska 4.0 R
    3. South Dakota 4.3 R
    4. Vermont 4.8 D
    5. Iowa 5.2 R
    5. New Hampshire 5.2 D
    6. Wyoming 5.3 R
    7. Oklahoma 5.4 R
    8. Virginia 5.6 R
    9. Minnesota 5.8 D
    9. Utah 5.8 R
    10. Kansas 6.2 R
    10. Montana 6.2 D
    So of 13 lowest UE states we have 9 Republicans and 4 Democrats

    Next, the 10 highest rates (yes, I'm including DC as a state):
    1. Nevada 12.0 R
    2. Rhode Island 11.1 I
    3. California 11.0 D
    4 District of Columbia 9.8 D
    5 North Carolina 9.7 D
    6. Florida 9.0 R
    6. Georgia 9.0 R
    6. Mississippi 9.0 R
    6. New Jersey 9.0 R
    7. South Carolina 8.9 R
    8. Illinois 8.8 D
    9. Arizona 8.6 R
    9. Kentucky 8.6 D
    9. Oregon 8.6 D
    10. Michigan 8.5 R
    10. New York 8.5 D

    Interesting to note that the state with by far the worst UE rate has a Republican Governor.
    So out of 16 states (including DC) we have 8 Republicans, 7 Democrats, and 1 Independent.

    Note, that though still above the National Rate, Michigan has come down from over 10% unemployment last year.

    But in short, the claim that high UE states are Democrat and low ones are Republican doesn't seem to hold water. There's some correlation, but it doesn't appear causal...rural, agricultural states in the mid west tend to be more conservative, and they also have industries more resistant to unemployment.
