So, what do you folks think it'll be the effect of the good economy to Trump's reelection chances?

Back in 2004, Bush Jr. had a similarly good economy as an incumbent and won narrowly the vote... but then, his approval rate around election time was actually slighly positive, and it was exceptional during most of its first term of office. Trump, on the other hand, will likely remain at least some 6 - 8 points under, as it has for the past 18 months...

Well, he did reach his highest score in approval rating yet a couple days ago, so there's that.

On the other hand, sings of a slowdown are showing up. Ironically, a hard Brexit like Trump is supporting could bring the world economy over the edge, bringing the slowdown and recession that could kill his chances for reelection...
