Craziness: Politics have blurred the lines between opinion and facts so much that Americans can’t even guess the truth. When asked a simple question about one of the most prevalent issues in our economy - unemployment rate - only 1/5th were able to respond correctly.
"According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the unemployment rate at the time of the survey was 8.3%—a little higher than the 7.8% rate in January 2009, the month President Obama was inaugurated." So the correct answer is "increased a little". Credit can be given to those who said there was "No Change", as the rate was consistent at 8.3% since February 2009, just one month after Obama took office.
