Democrats Are Becoming Free Traders in the Age of Trump

In a new poll from NBC News-The Wall Street Journal, 64 percent of Americans — including majorities of Democrats and Republicans — agree with the statement that free trade is good for America, because it opens up new markets, and the country can’t avoid the fact of a global economy.

This isn’t the result of a new appreciation of free markets by Democrats.
It is more about Trump hate.

“If Donald Trump is for it and you’re a Democrat, you move in a very different direction,”  said Republican pollster Bill McInturff, who conducted this survey with the Democratic pollsters from Hart Research Associates, according to NBC News.
