When Ted Cruz dropped out the presidential race, making Donald Trump the presumptive Republican nominee, there was no shortage of surprised reactions. “If he hammers home his pledge to bring jobs back from overseas, painting Clinton as a ‘pro-NAFTA free trader, ‘ Trump could sweep traditionally Democratic Rust Belt states…as well as Iowa and Missouri”.
