Interesting theory on the presidential election – not sure where I heard or read this: Both Trump and Sanders are saying they oppose new trade agreements such as TPP, while Clinton favors them. The vast majority of Americans oppose the agreements, as their impact in the past has been devastating to us and the other countries involved.
So the effect of the Trump/Sanders candidacies is to split the majority of Americans down the middle, negating a potentially unifying issue.
So Sanders supporters, when he bows out and throws his support behind Clinton, as he surely will, would be wise to unify behind Trump and hold his feet to the fire on trade.
I don’t see that happening.
