President Trump rolled out his BUY AMERICAN campaign at the White House this week showcasing products made in each state. Rhody's contribution was Narragansett Beer.
A new poll out found that Americans say they want to buy U.S.-made goods, but they don't want to pay more for them. Seventy percent of Americans said in the Reuters/Ipsos poll that it's "very important" or "somewhat important" to buy products made in the U.S. But 37 percent said they'd refuse to pay more for U.S.-made products, 26 percent said they'd only pay up to five percent more, and 21 percent said they'd only pay up to 10 percent more. Lower-income Americans were the most enthusiastic about buying U.S.-made goods, even though they are least able to afford to pay more for them. These kind of polls kill me because when asked, most people will tell the pollster what they think is the politically correct answer. Ask people what they'd like to see more of on TV and they'll tell you educational stuff like NOVA, then they go home crank up MONDAY NIGHT RAW and binge watch the WALKING DEAD.
