A relieved Barack Obama basked in shock good news yesterday as unemployment dipped below 8 percent to the lowest point of his presidency, stealing headlines from Mitt Romney's thumping debate win.

Unexpected data showing the jobless rate fell to 7.8 percent electrified Obama's re-election campaign, which was knocked back, by the president's grim performance in Wednesday's first presidential debate.
