6:38 am
following midterm election, in the third year of a given term of a presidency. how about that for precision? given that a lot of folks are predicting the republican party could take the senate, here is some more good news for the bold. net davis research found from 1961 to 22010. -- 2010, the combination of democratic president and democratic congress has produced the best historical returns for the s&p 500. and average of over 21%. so, compare that with 12.1%, that's when the white house and congress are controlled by the same party, when either party is in the white house, and split congress, returns are averaging 7.1%, the worse combo, a republican president, and a democratic congress, just four and a half% return. >> all right, jill, what about any legislation? expect any big changes? >> reporter: well, you know that political gridlock is basically stopped the clock on any major legislation. but, you know, we think about it, over the past few years, the periodic threat of default
6:39 am
or government shutdown has prompted congress to enact changes to the tax code. if the two houses remain split, it is likely to be more of the same. but, if the republicans do win the senate, then both houses could potentially come together, to pass a broader tax reform legislation, especially for the clung i corporate tax systemment we don't expect any big changes in the tax code for individuals or sweeping entitlement reform. of course president obama needs to sign any legislation into law, and that presidential veto remains tool that could limit any big action. >> so what do you think, jill, should any moves be made in anticipation of the election? >> reporter: just, i think, sit back and enjoy the ride, and don't make any big changes. because if we learned anything, throughout that volatile october, it was that long-term investors shouldn't be making guesses about the market direction, same is true for elections, just stick to your game plan. don't mess with your diversified portfolio. i have intriguing one up on jill on money my friends, learn why we still stink at
