Government workers now outnumber manufacturing workers by 9,932,000 . That's a number that will win you D.C. and northern Virginia, but will probably hurt if you're looking for votes in the heartland, especially if you go out there and promise to put coal miners out of work.
Coal jobs, even manufacturing jobs in general are on the decline for many reasons, and it's unfair to pin the phenomenon on Obama and Hillary, but shouting "Message: we don't care" is a bad campaign strategy. Or so it proved; the coastal elite, those oh-so-smart people who despise the rest of us, thought otherwise. As I said at 2 this morning, hahahahah.
