Folks at the end of the day our economy and how great it will do under our President will guarantee him winning in 2020 and Trumpism reigning for 50+ years. Our President is on the cusp of having a 3% GDP in his first year in office. What makes that even more amazing is that Barry was President for the first 20 days of the GDP year. The 1st quarter GDP was a miserable 1.2%. 2nd quarter 2.6% (which will be adjusted up). 3rd quarter predicted to be 3.7% and 4th quarter could reach 4%.
From the article linked above:
Barack Obama was the only U.S. president in history who did not deliver a single year of 3.0%+ economic growth.
Obama averaged less than 2% growth in his years in office.
According to Louis Woodhill, President Barack Obama left office with the fourth worst economic record in US history.
Assuming 2.67% RGDP growth for 2016, Obama will leave office having produced an average of 1.55% growth. This would place his presidency fourth from the bottom of the list of 39*, above only those of Herbert Hoover (-5.65%), Andrew Johnson (-0.70%) and Theodore Roosevelt (1.41%)
But all of that is changing under the leadership of President Trump. Employment numbers are improving, the stock market is at a record high and the GDP is climbing.
The Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta forecast a 3.7 percent rate for the third quarter of 2017.
