206. I'm sensing a media connection between the two.
Clinton fatigue could be explained in much the same way that Americans may experience "Michael Jackson fatigue" - the constant trashing of Clinton throughout the media may have made people eventually throw up their hands and hope for the end of the Clinton era, just to get those sanctimonious assholes in the media who wouldn't SHUT THE HELL UP ALREADY!

Likewise, the true damage NAFTA has done (which I assume you're aware of, as you stated that you no longer support the policy - I agree and applaud your stance on that, btw) was not and still largely is not discussed in the corporate media, and thus Americans as a whole are still not fully aware of the extent of the damage.

Then, too, there's the Republican base, a majority of which swallow whatever their leaders tell them to. When those leaders say, "NAFTA good!", their ignorant followers chime in, "You got it, boss!"

Mind you, this is my opinion, I'm not claiming it to be the perfect truth. Makes some amount of sense to me, however.
