The Dow Jones has hit an all time high of 27,000. This is part of why Trump’s approval ratings are increasing. What I thought would be interesting is to compare the increase in the Dow Jones at 30 months, by President. The list in order is:
Roosevelt +138% Coolidge +66% Eisenhower +61% Obama +52% Clinton +42% Ford +41% Trump +36% Bush GHW +29% Reagan +27% Harding +23% Johnson +18% Truman +10% Kennedy +7% Nixon -9% Carter -11% Bush GW -15% Hoover -69%
Those in bold were re-elected
It will be interesting to see how they stand in another year.
