Abstract

It has been long argued that the US economy has a massive influence on elections. But the Democrats’ midterm successes in the face of a Republican administration presiding over a healthy economy may have called that commonly held view into question. Helen Thompson writes that this new apparent disconnect between the economy and voters’ preferences may be down to President Trump; after campaigning on the falsity of economic data in 2016, Americans are now unconvinced of his claims of a booming economy that may seem detached from their daily reality.
