Two Rules | Rule #1 Do Not Lose Your Principal | Rule #2 See Rule #1

As Donald Trump continues to hammer Hillary Clinton’s record on trade and economic policies, a blockbuster new POLITICO Pro-Harvard poll shows that a majority of Americans believe multinational trade agreements of recent decades have lost U.S. jobs and depressed wages. The poll seems to represent a stunning rebuke of the trade agenda of Washington leaders in both political parties, and may portend poorly for Hillary Clinton, who has a long record of being a vocal advocate of global trade. The poll “shows an across-the-board skepticism toward international trade,” Politico writes. By a five-to-one margin, Americans believe that trade policies with other countries have lost American jobs (65% believe our trade policies have lost the U.S. jobs versus only 13% who believe our trade policies have created U.S. jobs).
