if the POTUS gets the TPP through Congress in February

how do you think this would influence the primaries
and the GE? I am really worried that he will do just that,
before another president will be elected.

1. I don't think it will make a big difference in either the primaries or GE.

In this election I don't think trade policy or climate change or financial reform are decisive electoral issues. Terrorism, health care and energy are more in the news and on peoples minds as far as I can see.

2. A couple of weeks ago one of the guys who works at a big grocery store, with my grandson,

 

came up to me at the checkout and asked me if I had heard about the TPP. He was just finding out about it and was pretty angry.
Evidently this came up in the break room!

I told him, yeah, it was bad - and told him to remember which politician was against it, and which politician shilled for it.
I am going to use info about the TPP to influence the primary whenever I talk to someone about Bernie, and I was actually astonished that a 22 year old guy had heard of it, and knew enough to be pissed off, and that this is discussed by employees in the break room. Then I remembered that people this age, like my grandson, get their information online, not from TV. Yes!!!!!!!!!!

3. it would probably help trump and sanders

both have come out on their respective sides very strongly against tpp. omalley too.

as to the ge, it would depend on the two or three candidates running.
