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...

I think Trumps chances right now is decent. His approval is ranging from 43-47% on most polls and he only won with 46% in 2016. As you mentioned he also has a good economy. I'd say his chances right now are like 50/50.
