    In January 2009, the total of Americans employed was142,099,000.

    In January 2012, the total of Americans employed is 141,637,000.

    The economy needs to add only 51,333 jobs per month to avoid having fewer Americans working at the time of the election than were working at the time he took office.

    It's a nail biter. Will he make it?
