28. NAFTA is the biggest reason we lost in 2000
I live in eastern Ohio, and if not for NAFTA Gore would have won Ohio and WV in 2000. The first answer you get from any x-Democrat here is Clinton passed NAFTA. This drove thousands and thousands of Union people over to the Republicans. Even though the argument can be made that there were far more Republicans that voted for it in Congress it will always be blamed on Clinton. WV was always a sure thing for Democrats up until 2000, it has turned solid Republican since then. If we took that one little state in 2000 Gore would be in his second term today. Didn't Gore cast the deciding vote for NAFTA?
