trump-veronica-2Republican nominee Donald Trump campaigned in Michigan Monday, a state where he is narrowing the gap with Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, according to recent polls.

Speaking in Grand Rapids in the early afternoon, Trump focused on jobs and the economy, promising Michigan voters that he would bring back manufacturing jobs.

“Michigan has lost one in four manufacturing jobs since Bill Clinton signed NAFTA,” Trump said.

“Before NAFTA, there were 280,000 auto jobs in Michigan, and now there is 160,000 and its going down fast. We have nearly $800 billion in trade deficits with the rest of the world,” he continued.

imagesTwenty-two years ago, my esteemed colleague Dan Henninger wrote a blockbuster Journal editorial titled “No Guardrails.” Its subject was people “who don’t think that rules of personal or civil conduct apply to them,” as well as the elites who excuse this lack of self-control and the birth of a less-civilized culture.

We are today witnessing the political version of this phenomenon. That’s how to make sense of a presidential race that grows more disconnected from normality by the day.

You know the latest numbers. Quinnipiac University’s poll this week has Mr. Trump at a hefty 28% nationally, up from 20% in July. Public Policy Polling has Mr. Trump leading all Republicans in New Hampshire with 35%. A Monmouth University poll has him at 30% in South Carolina, followed 15 points later by Ben Carson.

Here are some things I think are happening.

One is the deepening estrangement between the elites and the non-elites in America. This is the area in which Trumpism flourishes. We’ll talk about that deeper in.

1black_piles-1The Detroit News and Detroit Free Press both ran articles over the weekend detailing Gary Peters’ hypocrisy for investing in petcoke at the same time he is publicly attacking petcoke as a dangerous pollutant. This is consistent with Gary Peters’ hypocrisy on immigration, Wall Street, equal pay for women, and numerous other issues. But the fact that the two largest papers in the state prominently covered his hypocrisy is an important moment in this campaign.

Detroit Free Press: “Considering the emphasis Peters has put on the piles that once abutted the Detroit River, raising questions about his shares of Total S.A. is inbounds.”

9550101-largeMichigan Republicans are losing faith in U.S. Senate candidate Terri Lynn Land, according to a story this week in the National Journal. The political sleuths uncovered that she was never considered the ideal candidate by most Republicans (true), that she’s shown herself uncomfortable with issues and media (true) and that her campaign ran a silly television spot (true.) But one truth National Journal failed to uncover is that none of these items are newsworthy anymore. Everything “reported” was readily available to anyone with a Web browser and the ability to spell her name correctly.

Two polls released in the last day by Harper Polling and Mitchell Research and Communications show Michigan’s U.S. Senate race between former Secretary of State Terri Lynn Land and Congressman Gary Peters tied. Yesterday’s Mitchell poll shows a statistical tie with Terri gaining ground compared to previous polling results and the Harper poll also showed a “virtual tie”. Additionally, the Michigan Secretary of State reported that Land earned more than 80,000 more votes on her ballot than Peters.
