Except for Republicans, rising share of Americans see mercantile value in immigration, consult shows

At a time of rising populist rancour over globalization, Americans mostly determine that foreign trade is costing U.S. jobs, yet they also hold an increasingly positive view about a value of immigrants to a economy.

In a new study by a Pew Research Center, 8 out of 10 adults regarded increased outsourcing of jobs overseas and a expansion of imports of foreign-made products as harmful to U.S. workers.

By comparison, usually about half of a people surveyed saw automation as hurtful — even yet many economists trust new technologies and a mechanization of work have led to as many pursuit waste as imbalanced trade.  

The public’s widespread distrust of trade has been seized on by GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump’s campaign, and pushed Hillary Clinton, a Democratic nominee, to retreat her support for a tentative U.S.-led trade understanding with other Pacific Rim nations.
