Will Trump’s tariffs help him in the next presidential election?
I think so, many former Midwestern states that used to be manufacturing powerhouses would probably benefit from the Tariffs.
From a Presidential electoral perspective, you can pretty much assume the Democrats will win with the North East and the mainland states touching the Pacific Ocean, with the Republicans pretty much carrying the Southern States, and the Mountain states.
The 2016 election was decided by who won Pennsylvania, Ohio, Wisconsin, and Michigan.
It will be interesting to see what happens next as Trump is correct when he says the USA is at a disadvantage in trading thanks to tariffs.
