Next time take the 3 minutes of research it would have taken to realize how useless and corrupt the Democrats are.
The millions of American people slipping from Middle Class into poverty would sure appreciate it.

The average GDP growth during years with a Democratic President (5.1%) is nearly three times as great as those with a Republican President (1.8%). The average GDP growth during the entire administrations of these last 12 Presidents is also quite different. The four with the greatest average GDP growth are all Democrats: Roosevelt 6.4%, Truman 6.2%, Kennedy 5.7%, and Johnson 4.2%. The four Presidents whose administrations saw the weakest economic growth were all Republicans: Hoover -7.3%, Bush41 1.9%, Bush43 2.4%, and Eisenhower 2.7%. For simplicity, the economic growth of the entire term is associated with the elected President, for the unfinished terms of Roosevelt and Kennedy.The Bureau of Economic Analysis, a unit of the Department of Commerce, has an extensive data set available on the gross domestic product (GDP) of the United States. The currently available data begins in 1929 and goes through the present. This allows calculation of the change each year. To examine the effect of the political party in the White House to the performance, one can simply look at the average annual GDP growth under Democratic and Republican Presidents. The difference is large.
The period spans the administration of 12 Presidents, beginning with President Herbert Hoover. Conveniently, the number of administrations and the total number of years is equal for the two political parties.
