How much of that do you think is because people were no longer chained to employment in order to get health coverage? Or the dropping of pre-existing conditions which had people afraid to lose their coverage so they remained working?



Well Putin shits on all western leaders when it comes to popularity. The more russophobic america and europe gets, more popular Putin gets.



Seems like he is going for a second term.

So much hate on this thread.

It all depends on when the next economic collapse will happen. The 2008 bubble started with Clinton, Bush got a relative big bubble from Clinton, but the Fed managed to blow air into the bubble for the his hole first term, this is why he was reelected, but when the bubble finally burst in 2008 right before the elections, it killed any chances for a Republican candidate to be elected, resulting in Obama's victory. Then Obama together with the Fed did what all politians do when elected: they kicked the can down the road, growing another, but even bigger bubble during his 2 terms, a bubble that Trump now has to deal with, and he is just doing the same as his predecessors: kicking the can down the road as long as they can. If the bubble pops in his first term, he will lose the elections, but if he manages to blow air into this bubble until 2020, he will get another term.

I do agree with you, because of elections politicians usually bet on short term (2 years) that they can roll on the mid of their term instead of real long term projects that would give real benefits but no reelection.

But if Trump can manage the bubble and keep employment growing and change some of the consumption economy to more infra structure then his approval can hold and he be reelected with much hate and not understanding from Democrats.

Not surprising. He's doing good for the country in spite of the media's constant bashing of him and the left's hysteria.

Exactly what "good" has he done for the country?!?



Stop hating and start playing.

Obama said time for change but in reality trump seems to be bringing the most change.

Not sure what that has to do with job creation.  When entered office, participation rate was 66%.  When he left, it was 63%.  A drop of 3%....and yet jobs were still being created at a level even more than are created now.

That said, you do know why participation rates have dropped 3% since the mid 2000's, don't you?  In case you don't, here are a few.
- Increased college attendance (far more companies demand college education than ever).
- Increased incarceration rates (they still get counted even though they can't work which is stupid).
- Baby Boomers retiring before age 64 (the cut off age for the labor force participation rate).



Massimus - "Trump already has democrat support."

What I get from this is if you get elected during the up of the economical cycle you can get away with pretty much anything.



Bet reminder: I bet with Tboned51 that Splatoon won't reach the 1 million shipped mark by the end of 2015. I win if he loses and I lose if I lost.
