    Since January of 2011, here is how much the unemployment rate declined in
    each of the 17 states that elected Republican governors in 2010, according to the
    Examiner:

    Kansas - 6.9% to 6.1% = a decline of 0.8 [percentage points (11.6 percent)]
    Maine - 8.0% to 7.4% = a decline of 0.6 [percentage points (7.5 percent)]
    Michigan - 10.9% to 8.5% = a decline of [2.4 percentage points (22 percent)]
    New Mexico - 7.7% to 6.7% = a decline of [1.0 percentage points (13 percent)]
    Oklahoma - 6.2% to 4.8% = a decline of [1.4 percentage points - (22.6 percent)]
    Pennsylvania - 8.0% to 7.4% = a decline of [.6 percentage points (7.5 percent)]
    Tennessee - 9.5% to 7.9% = a decline of [1.6 percentage points (16.8 percent)]
    Wisconsin - 7.7% to 6.8% = a decline of [0.9 percentage points (11.9 percent)]
    Wyoming - 6.3% to 5.2% = a decline of [1.1 percentage points (17.5 percent)]
    Alabama - 9.3% to 7.4% = a decline of [1.9 percentage points (20.4 percent)]
    Georgia - 10.1% to 8.9% = a decline of [1.2 percentage points (11.9 percent)]
    South Carolina - 10.6% to 9.1% = a decline of [1.5 percentage points (14.2 percent)]
    South Dakota - 5.0% to 4.3% = a decline of [0.7 percentage points (14 percent)]
    Florida - 10.9% to 8.6% = a decline of [2.3 percentage points (21 percent)]
    Nevada - 13.8% to 11.6% = a decline of [2.2 percentage points (15.9 percent)]
    Iowa - 6.1% to 5.1% = a decline of [1.0 percentage points (16.4 percent)]
    Ohio - 9.0% to 7.3% = a decline of [1.7 percentage points (18.9 percent)]

    This was not the case for states that elected Democrats in 2010. For instance, the unemployment rate in New York actually went up.
    On average, states that elected Republican governors in 2010 saw their unemployment rates decrease at a faster clip than states that elected Democrats
    and the unemployment rate at the national level did.

    This is yet another example of how the so-called "blue state" model is not working.

    But remember Democrats believe that unemployment stimulates the economy so those Dem Governors were trying Pelosi/Obama Unemployment Stimulus for the 4th year in a row

    Has to work this time!

    It's purely coincidence. Im sure Obama is really responsible. He's funnelling all his efforts to Republican States
