Obama fans, you can breath a small sigh of relief: Recent polls are showing that support for the current prez, Barack Obama, is up in swing states - that is, a state that does not consistently support one specific political party - thanks to a drop in unemployment rates and boosts in tourism.
What's made the difference is that unemployment has dropped more sharply in several swing states than in the nation as a whole. A resurgence in manufacturing is helping the economy — and Obama's chances — in the industrial Midwestern states of Ohio and Michigan.
And Arizona, Nevada and Florida, where unemployment remains high, are getting some relief from an uptick in tourism.
All this means that, though small, Obama currently has an advantage over probable Republican nominee, Mitt Romney. Though these numbers could very well change - political analysts pointed out that just a month ago, Romney was tied with or had a lead over Obama in these same states - it's still a good chunk of news to end your Sunday with.
Well, if you're a Democrat, that is. Everyone else - sorry if we just ruined your day.
