Last Jobs Report Before the Election

The unemployment rate ticked up to 7.9% from 7.8% in October, but that was because more people were looking for work.

There were 171,000 jobs added in October, more than the 125,00 economists anticipated, plus the August and September numbers were revised upward, with another 84,000 jobs added.

Nothing election-changing here.
