According to the Labor Department, the number of people seeking first-time unemployment has decreased. Likewise, according to Mitt Romney, the number of lazy people has dropped to 46 percent.

Obama's director of opinion research commented that the president would “absolutely be reelected" if elections were held today. Especially because only he and Obama would know the date had been moved up.
