    Let their croony capitalist friends run wild and destroy the foundations of our economy

    Right when a Democrat is about to come to office they trigger a market selloff

    Democrat has to deal with mess and isn't able to push their real platform

    Republicans win due to public outrage over economy and take over right after Democrats fix their mess

    Who wants to bet by the end of the year we will be in a 2008esque economic Crisis that spills into next year

    With this Corona virus causing a media frenzy and not looking to end even remotely soon, stock market unusually surging at the beginning of this year, f***ed up natural disasters breaking records, budgets being cut everywhere, this s*** is ready to topple over tbh.

    Rent prices already surging, entertainment and retail industries slowing down as well. And it ain't even hurricane season yet. We've had record highs in January, feels almost like Spring outside in the Midwest (maybe not today, it's cold af).

    Earth bout to send us a reality check.

    I'm hoping it all comes toppling down cuz the only people it ever really effects is rich people tbh. Why else they care about it so much?

    Way too conspiratorial obviously republicans want the market to do well in order to stay in power and make money

    The idea is Republicans essentially allow businesses to run amok and destabilize global economics for the sake of american companies

    The result of these actions is always going to be an economic backlash. But they can postpone the backlash by essentially continuing to push the markets up and doing whatever else is necessary to keep money flowing

    They know democrats are playing a different game so when they come into office they won't be able to handle the economy the way Republicans do. So the companies prepare in advance and when Dems win the market crashes

    If Trump wins again it's just going to be more backdoor corrupt s*** and inflated stocks, if he loses we will get the correction we probably need.

    Yea it's a wild theory but I think there's a correlation between party in office and economic conditions and I think the difference is just corruption

    Corona virus is already affecting supply chains. Lots of products come from places that have been quarantined in China.

    1970's Bernie however

    His platform calls for the nationalization of the Internet (or at least most of it) Medicare for all will drive private insurance out of business, and the green new deal will nationalize the energy industry and major transportation. 1970s Bernie never left, he just learned to market himself in a better way lol

    your theory just makes no sense based on previous election results. in 2012 the market was at an ath and Obama, who was at the helm for the recovery, was reelected. In 2016 the market was at an ath and Trump won the election. While I'm sure there's some correlation between stock market performance and elections the examples you're giving don't add up.

    Beyond all of this the reality is that the president doesn't have nearly as much influence on the market as you think and presidents taking credit for economic success are just padding their stats.

    as I initially said suggesting that the global pandemic currently going on is at all influenced by any political party is alex jones level conspiracy s***.

    you're also leaving out the dozens of times where there was no major drop in the market prior to party changes as well as neglecting to mention the tech bubble bursting and the nasdaq collapsing at the end of Clinton's presidency.
