It is the working family Reagan democrats whose jobs were exported.
Keeping jobs American was a huge part of what brought the union democrats to Reagan. Unfortunately the modern globalist republicans will never accept the Reagan way on that. In very specific industries Reagan gave importers a choice, build here or pay a tariff.
He didn't go hog wild with the tariffs but he targeted them for a specific effect and I think we can credit him for the "Japanese" cars made in America today.

Correct on all that
Reagan won in 1980 by securing the Midwest working man vote by ensuring there will be no dumping...these were the Reagan Democrats
Too bad the RINO Free Traders have taken this off the table in later elections. The GOP loses elections not by refusing illegal alien amnesty to Hispanics...but loses by telling Reagan Democrats their jobs are being shipped to (insert third world hell hole here).
