And as for the undecideds, I think Honey Boo Boo's endorsment of Obama was far more damaging to Romney then any jobs number. When I saw this chart, I thought it would make a good Romney ad, but the more I think about it, the more its probably better for Obama. His base has got to love this. I'm also pretty sure the increase of people getting disability checks compared to the increase of people getting paychecks under Obama was also a high ratio. http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/food-stamp-growth-75x-greater-job-creation_660073.html

Seventy percent of counties with the fastest-growth in food-stamp aid during the last four years voted for the Republican presidential candidate in 2008, according to U.S. Department of Agriculture data compiled by Bloomberg. They include Republican strongholds like King County, Texas, which in 2008 backed Republican John McCain by 92.6 percent, his largest share in the nation; and fast-growing Douglas County, Colorado.

I'm sure all those people legitimately needed it. It's the people abusing the system that are the problem. And they all live in the blue counties. These red county folks were only using it because it was there and their tax dollars paid for it. If they had all those tax dollars they paid back, they'd of been okay.
