Dr. Jason Johnson, political science professor at Hiram College, spoke with WKYC-TV in Cleveland about the July job creation numbers and the national unemployment rate.
The new July unemployment numbers nationwide are 8.3 percent. That’s up from 8.2 percent.
Hiram College Professor Jason Johnson has crunched the numbers and believes the President cannot win if unemployment goes any higher than 8.3 percent, where it is now.
“If you start getting to 8.4 percent, 6.5 percent, 8.6 percent, it means it’s hitting Ohio, North Carolina and Florida. These are places the President must win in order to get reelected,” he said.
