    I picked about the same. And my choice is a reflection of my business receipts over the last 4 years as compared to the previous 4 years.

    Improvement has been slight.
    And 4 years previous does not count. Your question was since Obama took office.

    If I can't base it off of history then I would change my vote to its gotten worse. Growth is natural stagnation is not.

    Yes. Since Obama took office.

    And by "no", that should read "it's gotten worse".

    For the wealthy whose primary income is capital gains, things are much improved since Obama took office.

    For everyone else...life's a bitch. If you lost your job at any point, you are either still unemployed or lesser employed than you were before.

    I don't see how anyone in that shape could possibly vote for Obama, but never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.

    But stagnation is all we have for us with the path as laid out before Obama, and he has kept to the path as well.

    When Obama took office Real GDP was 100.697 (chained, 2005=100 figures)

    Real GDP today is 107.459.
