Even more stats would be helpful to the conservative cause. What happened to the unemployment rates in he states that elected Democrat governors in 2010? How do all states with Republican governors compare to states with Democrat governors? If Republican governed states average better unemployment statistics than the average, then Democrat governed states must be worse than average. Let's get those statistics out into the public domain.

Good idea, their number must be justaposed abd used as ammo in this election.

Some awesome news: all 17 states that elected a Republican governor in 2010 has seen a reduction in their unemployment levels. In just over a year and a half since those new executives took office, these states have seen some serious improvement:

Kansas - 6.9% to 6.1% = a decline of 0.8%

Maine - 8.0% to 7.4% = a decline of 0.6%

Michigan - 10.9% to 8.5% = a decline of 2.4%

New Mexico - 7.7% to 6.7% = a decline of 1.0%

Oklahoma - 6.2% to 4.8% = a decline of 1.4%
