Don't get too excited - a big correction is coming. It will start with either consumer debt or the Amazon bubble bursting, don't know when but definitely before the next pres election.
Stock markets have been strongly up since 2010 in pretty much every Western country - does not matter who is in charge, left, right or middle. There are lots of reasons for that - low interest rates, tech boom, low transaction costs and taxes, high entry costs for real estate etc.
One notable exception is Poland of course - mainly because of the govt interfering in the mgmt of some of the biggest companies.
Stock market growth does not always make voters happy - in both Brexit and the Trump quake then they ignored stock market results and rather thought they felt poor themselves - from rising costs, stagnant wages, inequality, resentment against immigrants lowering wages etc.
