president trump made many failed promises and now the voters know he has failed them there.

 

Do I think Sleepy Joe is the answer nope but Trump failed Michigan and failed the steel workers he promised he would help and they helped him get elected

 

How can Trump get their trust back after his massive failures with one month left-he is down 8-10% in Michigan

 

President Donald Trump promised a new dawn for the struggling U.S. steel industry in 2016, and the lure of new jobs in Midwestern states including Michigan helped him eke out a surprise election win.

Four years later, Great Lakes Works - once among the state's largest steel plants - has shut down steelmaking operations and put 1,250 workers out of a job. A year before the June layoffs, plant owner United States Steel Corp called off a plan to invest $600 million in upgrades amid deteriorating market conditions.

 

Trump's strategy centered on shielding U.S. steel mills from foreign competition with a 25% tariff imposed in March 2018. He also promised to boost steel demand through major investments in roads, bridges and other infrastructure.

But higher steel prices resulting from the tariffs dented demand from the Michigan-based U.S. auto industry and other steel consumers. And the Trump administration has never followed through on an infrastructure plan.

Michigan's heavy reliance on the steel and auto industries puts Trump's trade policy in sharp focus ahead of the Nov. 3 presidential election in this battleground state

 

While the tariffs failed to boost overall steel employment, economists say they created higher costs for major steel consumers - killing jobs at companies including Detroit-based automakers General Motors Co and Ford Motor Co. Nationally, steel and aluminum tariffs resulted in at least 75,000 job losses in metal-using industries by the end of last year, according to an analysis by Lydia Cox, a Ph.D. candidate in economics at Harvard University, and Kadee Russ, an economics professor at the University of California, Davis. In all, they estimated, the trade war had caused a net loss of 175,000 U.S. manufacturing jobs by mid-2019.

In Michigan, steelmakers have served layoff notices to nearly 2,000 workers since the tariff took effect, according to a Reuters analysis of the notices steel companies filed with the state. The state's primary metals manufacturing industry, which includes iron and steel mills, employed about 7,300 fewer workers in August than in March 2018, when Trump announced metal tariffs, according to data from Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis.

The steel-industry setbacks account for just a fraction of the job losses in Michigan's manufacturing sector - which now employs 55,100 fewer workers than it did when Trump took office in January 2017, U.S. Labor Department data shows. The state's automotive industry accounted for 35% of the manufacturing job losses, according to the St. Louis Fed.

Michigan in the bag.

 

John James will unseat Dem incumbent.

 

Michiganders of all stripes hate their Governor and know Biden is as swift in the noggin as cold baby mush.

Michigan focus group voters say Biden won't 'make it four years' and Harris makes them want to vote for Trump

Michigan voters taking part in a focus group following Wednesday night’s vice presidential debate said they don’t believe Joe Biden will “make it four years” and that Kamala Harris being president makes them want to vote for Trump.

 

Biden’s not going to make it four years, so Kamala Harris is going to be president. And I have zero trust she can be president, so I’m just picking the lesser of two evils at this point,” a woman identified as Shelley D. told an Axios focus group after the debate. “Everyone else in the group agreed,” according to the news outlet. 
 

Former White House adviser Kellyanne Conway took notice of the focus group’s response, tweeting about it using all capital letters to emphasize that everyone agreed with Shelley’s point.

 

The group of 13 voters, all of which voted for Obama in 2012 but switched to Trump in 2016, expressed the belief that Harris performed better than Pence at the debate — which “scared” some of them because they feared it could have boosted Biden’s chance at winning.


“I’m fearful of this woman because she knows how to strike chords with the people of America,” a man named Matt T. said. “She’s basically utilizing everything that has happened this year to attack the Trump campaign, and she does it in such a way that she’s making really strong points, but I don’t think they’re true. So, she’s coming across very powerful.”

 

The RealClearPolitics polling average shows Biden leading Trump in the critical swing state of Michigan by 6 points. Trump defeated Hillary Clinton in the state in 2016 by a margin of 0.3%.

Windmills? Solar panels? They don't make them here, I know, I help move them out of the ports. The blades are made of composites, not steel and most solar panels are made in China, which was part of the Obama administration's plan to create tens of thousands of jobs...in China. As for the use of steel in solar panels, not really necessary in the construction of photocells.

I know, I know you voted for Trump.  But did you write this?  Where are you getting this data?  Steel prices are falling.  Also you cant make cars fast enough.  Pickups are 75K and there is a waiting list.
