3. Trump jobs report card in one chart: Robust growth in computer/professional services jobs (driven by Silicon Valley tech giants), manufacturing, not so great showing in traditional retail (driven by tech giants like Amazon as more people are using it vs brick/mortar stores).
4. Factor in record low unemployment in key swing states like Wisconsin and Pennsylvania, it makes it tricky for Democratic challengers to campaign on raising taxes (cost GHW Bush the WH in ‘92), which could be viewed by some voters as harming the economy.
