Your portfolio as had much better gains under Clinton and Obama than it did under Republicans.

The market did well under Clinton because he just happened to preside over the largest tech revolution in several decades - telecom, internet, etc. As you also will recall, in Clinton's last year in office (2000), the market crashed, esp Nasdaq, which of course, wasn't really his fault either. The market was extremely overextended.

And Obama just happened to jump into office right as the market bottomed from the financial crisis (2008/2009). It's only really snapped back pre-crash levels or thereabouts. Growth in the economy has been enemic under Obama for the most part.
