Here's why. Trump doesn't have nearly as much to do with the unemployment rate as many like to claim. Unemployment rates have been dropping since 2012. Now, the rate of workforce participation, that has been on the decline since 2007. The economy hasn't been good for everyone.

Trumps approval rating in our community is only 17%. He's riding on the coattail of Obamas rising economy. And that economy is only benefiting the upper crust not the average Joe. Inflation is lowering the standards of the majority of low income, the retired and those dependent on limited incomes.

All of his issues that keep him low are self-created. The guy likes to shoot himself in the foot for no reason. And don't blame the media for Trump's actions. Trump is an entire Media wing by himself with all his Twitter antics and rallies.
You said it! "no major incidents" No Destroying Countries like Libya, No trying depose other leaders like Assad, no Billion dollars worth of cruise missiles often hitting targets like a Dr. Without borders hospital, no releasing Terrorist back into the world!
Thank goodness we have Trump just "shooting his self in the foot" rather than "shooting" Innocents in Libya

The reporting on the economy has been positive.

I don't think that presidents have much to do with unemployment rates or the economy, they get too much credit and blame. We did get a bump from the tax cuts but I don't see another reason for the economy doing so well.

The low IQs (I love the poorly educated!) don't see it that way. They don't realize that he walked into a good thing. And they believe whatever comes out of his large piehole even though he has over 10,000 documented lies and mistruths.

While Presidents can only do so much, a stance of "businesses, do what you want, we're also cutting Obama mandates" makes businesses more 'free' in their spending decisions.

I'm not sure how much regulations are being cut but if many environmental rules are no longer being enforced or taken off the table, that also makes companies much more free in their spending in forrays into new markets. So I would argue there is definitely a party type feel boosting business spending and thus economic impact.

And seeing Trump openly criticize the FED, it is more firmly leading to a "we'll get bailed out" mentality and thus ok to take risk approach.

Let's not forget no president in modern history ever acted like a 12-year-old bully either.
