What issues will matter to Trump’s base of support?

For all the things low-information voters supportive of President Donald Trump are not supposed to care about (e.g., lies, White House chaos, foreign policy), there are, it’s fair to say, two things that will make a difference to them both in preference and turnout in 2018. The good news for Democrats is that both factors do not weigh in Trump’s favor.

Today, however, there is a bill in front of the state legislature that could provide both economic development and environmental benefits. Aquatic invasive species called zebra and quagga mussels are threatening our waterways and have the potential to cost Washington state taxpayers their access to clean water and millions of dollars in lost revenue by causing irreparable harm to our lakes, rivers and the Salish Sea.
