Here are some rather disquieting poll results. Fully 57 percent of Republicans answered “agree” to the statement, “The free market has been sorting out and America’s been losing.” 69 percent of Republicans say that it is acceptable for the president and vice president to “directly negotiate with private businesses,” which is definitional economic corporatism; 78 percent say they’re fine with Trump and Pence offering “tax breaks or incentives to individual companies to keep jobs in the US,” still more crony corporatism; 71 percent signed off on Trump and Pence offering government contracts to individual companies to keep jobs in the US, which is Obama-esque stimulus; 75 percent said they were fine with Trump and Pence negotiating with individual private companies on a case by case basis.
