Will today's jobs report have an effect on who wins the election?

No because the jobs report was what was expected. Plus, If there were tns of jobs created last month, one month by itself really doesn't mean much or set a trend.

No, number is not significant and the rate needed to fall below 5% to help Obama

I believe in a week or so they are going to revised as they were compiled by unionised government workers who would be Obama supporters and as a general rule will lie thru their teeth

they only count the people that are on unemployment currently, not the people who lost their jobs years ago and no longer qualify for unemployment benefits. The unemployment rate is much much higher than that.

Nope. Didn't help Ford. Didn't help Carter. Didn't help GHWB and it darn sure won't help Obama. Too little and FAR too late. Besides, takes more than a few new $8 an hr jobs to reverse an economy. Have you seen the U6 numbers? Holding steady. NOT GOOD.
