The state of the economy during the presidential election season has a significant impact on not just the approval rating of the incumbent president at the time, but also has an impact on the policies in which presidential candidates run on.

This exercise will encourage students to evaluate how other fluctuations in the economy may affect the ratings, policies, and decisions of the 2016 presidential candidates.
