    Interesting article i particularly like the closing statement "Correlation, of course, doesn’t mean causation: The party in power didn’t necessarily produce all the gains in the GDP or the stock market, or lack thereof. Voters could be more inclined to vote for Democrats when the economy is picking up. Or, given the relatively small sample size, the results could simply be random. And quite a bit of new policy includes a lag between passage and implementation, so it’s possible that some of these congress/president combinations deserve credit for growth that came on somebody else’s watch."
