I think the economy will bounce back, but I respectfully disagree. Four years. He won't get all of those voters back to the polls again.
And if things improve, he will win over new ones. Name one president in the last 100 years who lost when the economy was successful and things were going well. Bush I lost midway because of a struggling economy. Johnson and Truman due to war issues. Carter due to the Iran Hostage crisis and a bad economy. And then there was Hoover.
On the other hand, Reagan, Bush II, Clinton, and Ike all got re-elected because the economy was going fairly well.
