Trade was "extremely important" for 25% of voters, or 11th most important of 12 issues. Only Russia was lower.
Trade was extremely or very important for 61% of voters, at 10th place - below Kavanaugh and above climate change/Russia.
news.gallup.com/poll/244367/to…
This confirms my intuition. Trade can't be completely disregarded as an issue, but neither should it occupy pride of place. For a decent chunk of voters, it's something they feel passionately about. For a majority of voters, it's something they follow.
Politicians like Sherrod Brown - who do well in Midwestern swing states - emphasize their populist bonafides on the issue.

Thread:

A little less than 2 years ago, when @ezralevin @jeremyhaile @Leahgreenb & others began the @IndivisibleTeam, a group of us started this account & grew our following both here and on FB. We met & strategized. We staged actions for healthcare, Trump's taxes, & other...
@ezralevin @jeremyhaile @Leahgreenb @IndivisibleTeam important issues. We showed up, we marched, we flooded @RepDaveTrott's office with a wave like nothing they had ever seen. We all knew his staffers on a first-name basis. Some highlights included Trott's ill-fated town hall, which he held only after ...
@ezralevin @jeremyhaile @Leahgreenb @IndivisibleTeam @RepDaveTrott sustained pressure we put on him. He was caught on hot-mic planning to paint his constituents as un-American, which we pushed into a national story, covered by @washingtonpost. We worked our butts off, and got a lot of our members elected to local office since 2016. And it ...

🚨MY MASTER THREAD of #Midterm2018 results analysis, including an array of data dives. Will the country chose to repudiate president Trump? Health care instead of the wall? RT & strap in, folks, tonight could be a wild ride. We get the first batch of results at around 6 PM ET.
Turnout has looked unprecedented for weeks now. Indications today that it could even beat these lofty expectations. At this point I think I’d buy for pickups in Tossup sub/urban seats like #TX07 #TX32 and #TX26, but sell in more rural districts that have looked like reaches.

From the governor's mansion to the halls of Congress, Democrats across Michigan have the opportunity to reclaim the state from Republicans. #MIpol (1/7) NXTGN.US/fjf
#MIGov: Gretchen Whitmer is the leader Michigan deserves. She supports affordable healthcare, the #metoo movement, and will stand up to Trump. NXTGN.US/fjg
#MISen: Debbie Stabenow was the first woman to defeat a sitting senator. From banning oil and gas drilling in the Great Lakes to supporting sensible gun control, Stabenow will fight to protect Michigan residents. NXTGN.US/fjh

🚨GOOD NEWS THREAD - HOUSE VERSION🚨

#OH12 left us with a cliffhanger. We all worked so hard to give @dannyoconnor1 an outright win. Yes it's a steep climb, but it could still happen. Either way, we did good!

But let's not overlook the OTHER good House news from last night.
In "Toss-up" #MI08 Democratic primary voters OUT-VOTED Republican primary voters.

Democrat Elissa Slotkin (@ElissaSlotkin) is going to FLIP this seat right out from under incumbent GOP Rep. Mike Bishop.

But only if we help her right now.

Register. Vote. DONATE. Volunteer.
In "Toss-up" open seat #MI11, Democratic primary voters OUT-VOTED Republican primary voters.

But Democrat Haley Stevens (@HaleyLive) needs to hit the ground running if we want to FLIP this seat.

So let's get started.

Register. Vote. DONATE. Volunteer.

What do we have the most control over? Voting, helping others register to vote, getting out the vote, and flipping as many seats as possible in the #Midterms2018

Here are 27 seats Democrats can pick up, followed by candidates. Direct some energy to them. 1/7
