Unemployment numbers may mean trouble for Obama

Published by Steve Coleman on September 01, 2011

The U.S. White House is predicting fewer Americans will be back at work in time for next year's presidential election.

The Obama administration revised its unemployment forecast for 2012 to say more than nine per cent of U.S. workers will be looking for a job next year, more than the projections indicated.

A story by thehill.com looks at what the projections could mean for president Barack Obama's re-election chances.
