2. It could decide the election among remaining undecided voters

It may very well improve, giving the gallup numbers @7.3%, although I believe the seasonal correction works against raw number in October to some degree.

4. That s an important report. Should help the President.

Based upon just my personal observations, economic activity seemed to have picked up dramatically since early September. I am seeing a lot of private home refurbishment in communities which appeared dead. Haven't seen many new hoes, but the refurbishment is equal to a couple of housing starts. I am also seeing road repair and government facilities projects. In addition, my grocer is always crowded and the food donation baskets are fuller than I have noticed them, so people have enough money to pay not only their own grocery bills but also donate to charity.

7. We will know the economy has improved when there are new hoes.

Sorry, I couldn't pass it and would expect the same when I screw up, which happens a lot.

As far as new home, there are 3 new homes in my neighborhood. One just starting last week.

8. I was at a big mall on THURS night and the place was full.

There is very little there that might be considered Halloween-oriented, so that wasn't the draw. I also had to wait in line at the cashier. There were some good sales, however. Local restaurants have been busy, too. So there are people comfortable with spending money. Hope that bodes well for Obama.

5. If the same or lower, it will be ignored

If so much as one point higher, the M$M will go on and on about it.

6. Anyone making a decision on this one report should not be able to vote

If you wait this long and make a decision like this on one months number, then you are in need of some counseling.

10. I suspect it will drop a bit based on Gallups latest numbers.

At least that takes that item off the GOP talking point list.
