How politics change  
10 months ago when I took isidewith quiz, Trump was much further down.
But now he moved closer to my views and is in the second place (after Gary Johnson).
Now Trump and I share 79% of views (was 69% back in October 2015).
It looks like Trump is doing what analysts predicted he would be doing: after winning Republican primaries he changed his rhetoric to embrace some popular Democratic and Libertarian views.

Hillary Clinton was at 67% and now she is down to 64%.
It's a wrong move after winning Democratic Primaries.
It looks like she does not want to win this elections.

Glass–Steagall was not really enforced already and FCMA just legalized things.

It not started bubble (there are always bubbles), but allowed it to grow to disproportional level.
He also signed the Commodity Futures Modernization Act, which exempted credit-default swaps from regulation. In 1995 Clinton loosened housing rules by rewriting the Community Reinvestment Act, which put added pressure on banks to lend in low-income neighborhoods.

Whatever happened (5 or 10 reasons) - Clinton was at the helm.

I find it strange that you are blaming Bill Clinton for 2008-2009 housing bubble.
If Bill Clinton's decision to loose regulations was wrong - then Bush Administration had many years to fix that (and did not).
