Americans favor action on China's cheating, including "currency manipulation."
As the House and Senate consider bills to address China's deliberately undervalued currency, it's important to remind Congress that the American people strongly support action to address China's cheating. And this support extends across party lines.
According to national polling conducted for the Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM), voters understand the "China problem"-- and they want something done about it:
- 64% of voters think China's currency manipulation has "cost American jobs."
- 62% agree that " We need to get tough with China and use every possible legal means to stop their unfair trade practices."
- 80% want to "Impose tariffs on products from China until they stop unfair trade practice including manipulating their currency."
- 83% want to "Penalize nations such as China that manipulate their currency and cheat on their trade agreements."
