US Democrats should remember: ‘It’s the economy, stupid’

The economy is doing well…

“The economy, stupid” phrase can be traced back to James Carville, who was a strategist for Bill Clinton’s successful 1992 presidential bid. The story goes that Carville posted a sign around campaign headquarters with three phrases, and the economy one was the most memorable.

Carville was right, though: Most Americans of voting age care deeply about their finances. The global factors of the economy have a broad impact on so many facets of our lives, including our wages, our employment status and our savings/retirement accounts.
