What impact will the latest economic news have on the Presidential race?

More economic evidence that the U.S. continues to do better than most other advanced economies of the world despite the fact that economists have been saying the weak global economy, especially the Euro-crisis, has slowed our recovery. The conservative Wall Street Journal reports today after recent reports showing unemployment dropping and consumer confidence growing, now retail sales increased beating analysts expectations. WSJ "The stronger retail data provide some of the first hard evidence that rising consumer confidence is translating into actual spending. On Friday, a survey from the University of Michigan showed consumer sentiment hitting its highest level since before the recession. Other polls and surveys also have shown Americans becoming more positive about the economy. Such optimism comes despite a weakening global outlook that has dragged down exports and hurt manufacturers. The domestic economy (the U.S.) is doing better even as the export side is weakening (because of a poor global economy). Economists said the current rebound may reflect a broader improvement in household finances. Job growth has been slow but relatively steady over the past two years, and incomes are rising again. The stock market has been strong and the long-moribund housing market is finally beginning to improve." In August we learned housing had it's first positive year June 2011-2012 since the Great Recession. Today Business Insider reports DEUTSCHE BANK says"The Housing Market Is Telling Us The Rest Of The Economy Will Accelerate Within Months.'...this recovery in housing is important because housing is what led the U.S. economy into a recession, and is part of the reason the recovery has been so slow". John Walsh, president, Total Mortgage Services- not a big Obama fan- has said "I believe President Obama can claim a victory in the housing war to date".
