Presidents vs. Unemployment

Not all unemployment numbers are the same … after WWII unemployment spiked because the Wartime Effort came to an end, but the recent unemployment numbers are due to a Global Recession.

However, over the last 64 years, Reagan was the only Republican who had a net improvement over his presidency (the improvement did not occur until his second term).

And over that same period every Democrat has had an improvement, except Carter who broke even.
