4. I'm not surprised...

I've been saying for months that most of average America is very interested in social justice, but not only economic justice.

Most people who aren't political junkies have not even heard of the TPP, or don't think of it as necessarily bad. For everyone who wants to burn down Wall Street, there are a bunch of others who have retirement funds (including state employees and union negotiated retirement) that are doing well.

Getting overly excited about TPP, Wall Street, and $15 minimum wage is way down on the list of most people. They are more interested in a path to citizenship, racial discrimination, women's rights, and LGBT rights: SOCIAL JUSTICE is important.

When there is a good week for things people are interested in, Obama will get credit. Even the ACA is gaining traction - including the non-supporting states like Florida. More and more people are simply happy to get insurance that they never had before.
