Why is this a surprise?  The mfrs want open borders for their inputs and closed borders for,their outputs.

Apart from all the crazy bs in the news these days, this is a legit discussion worthy of some serious thought and debate.

Agreed. This is what got Trump elected in the Rust Belt.

Still won't bring jobs back there. If the electronics were made in N. America they would be set up in existing semiconductor plants and assembly plants. Those are mainly in the west coast states. The Rustbelt needs to switch to another industry.

No, animosity to black people and immigrants did.

Trump voters weren't anymore disposed to economic anxiety than Clinton voters.

Also doesn't address automation. There are still tons of auto and other factories in the rust belt, and they're as productive as ever. They just don't need nearly as many workers as they used to. Even if some production moves to the US, those electronic components will be made by robots, just like all the mechanical components.

Despite the fact that Obama's job growth was far better than GWB's.

Methinks the real problem is entitled workers thinking their new job should pay them just as much as their old ones. Hey, wait, I thought those were liberals.

These say something different, unless you're going to argue these voters became racist after voting for Obama.

The Voters Who Put Both Obama and Trump in the White House

"Those Obama-Trump voters, in fact, effectively accounted for more than two-thirds of the reason Clinton lost, according to Matt Canter, a senior vice president of the Democratic political firm Global Strategy Group. In his group's analysis, about 70 percent of Clinton's failure to reach Obama's vote total in 2012 was because she lost these voters."
