Jon Corzine Angers the Employment Gods Again

Instant karma: One week after Jon Corzine puts up an ad touting job creation, the unemployment rate in New Jersey jumps from 9.3 percent to 9.7 percent.

This is the risk you run when you tout your economic plan and say, “It’s working.”

Thank goodness that phenomenon is limited to Trenton, and we don’t see it in

Washington . . .

Also note this observation from Public Policy Polling:

Barack Obama’s approval rating with likely voters for this fall’s election in New Jersey has sunk to just 45 percent, with 48 percent of voters disapproving of him. That makes you wonder just how effective tying himself to Obama is really going to be for Jon Corzine this fall.
