A new poll from Morning Consult shows most voters favor fair trade. Dave Salmonsen, AFBF’s trade specialist, explained in a recent Newsline that the poll is positive news in regards to voters’ views on trade and TPP. The poll shows 57 percent of voters favor fair trade, while 69 percent say trade agreements that open new markets are good for the U.S.
The poll is “a good bedrock on where we stand and it’s something we certainly look to build on,” noted Salmonsen. He also pointed out that the growing support shows the need for Congress and the Obama administration to continue to push forward toward approving TPP.
