I've been saying, without any data to back this up, that Donald Trump is filling a huge void by promising to stand up to China on economic issues. Now, courtesy of Pew Research, I have some data to back this up:
Trump's position on China is moderately unpopular with the electorate as a whole, but wildly popular among the most loyal elements of the GOP base. No other Republican candidate is giving the people what they want here.
