Big boost for Barack Obama's campaign
What debate? The poll that really matters was just released this morning and it makes for dramatic and welcome news for President Barack Obama's administration.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the U.S. added 114,000 jobs in September, bringing the unemployment rate down to 7.8 percent - its first time below 8 percent this year and its lowest rate since Obama took office.

Reaction at the Romneycamp will run like this: 'Mr President, you said you would being unemployment below 8%! Ah, heck...'

There was further news for the administration, too: numbers for July and August were revised upward to show 86,000 more jobs were created than previously reported.

This is only poll that matters. And the president who believes in the long game is clearly winning it.
