    I've read some debate over this here, so here are two research papers that examine the influence of macro-economic policy and US Presidential elections, as well as vice versa. The authors say there are significant links:

    'Presidential Elections and the Economy: 1872 to 1996', G. Patrick Lynch, Georgetown University
    http://www.jstor.org/view/10659129/ap020028/02a00090/0

    'Presidential Elections and Federal Reserve Policy', Kevin Grier, George Mason University
    http://www.jstor.org/view/00384038/....edu/01cce4406300501bf78ce&dpi=3&config=jstor
