58. Pretty much

If you have to fight on that ground, though, there are some stats floating around (that I assume are credible) that show how the market actually isn't as strong under Trump as under Obama or Clinton and, of course, Trump's Tariffs are hurting the manufacturing and farming industries (I mean, farmers are literally being bailed out). Also, be sure to point out that, despite his pledges to the contrary, the Coal Industry is still faltering because it's more or less inevitable and that, despite him yelling at Windmills, clean energy is not just going to vanish and that people are more interested in it than propping up dying, dirtier energy industries.

I think that the overarching argument Democrats should be making is that another 4 years of Trump is another 4 years of uncertainty and instability and wouldn't it be better to have a stable President instead of an unstable one. Stability is good for the country's economy, foreign policy, etc.
