Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton (D) says real estate mogul Donald Trump’s (R) base of support is very narrow.
Clinton: “I think he has — if you really analyze it — a pretty narrow base. … If he gets nominated, we’re going to have a very vigorous general election if I’m the nominee.” (CNN)
TALKING FREE TRADE. “In the month since the New Hampshire presidential primary, the debate in the Republican and Democratic races has shifted to free-trade deals and whether they have left American workers behind.”
“Like Michigan, Ohio has seen its fair share of job losses that some attribute to free-trade policies that have encouraged outsourcing and increased imports. In 2015, Ohio lost 115,000 jobs due to free-trade deals, according to a study released this month by the Economic Policy Institute, a think tank focused on conditions of low- and middle-income workers. The study found that Michigan ranked first for the most job loss due to free trade last year, while Ohio ranked sixth.” (Boston Globe)
