But as the Alliance for American Manufacturing's (AAM) new national poll shows, voters across the political spectrum say that "creating manufacturing jobs in the U.S.” and “strengthening manufacturing in this country” are their top priorities for Washington.
Americans strongly support manufacturing because they understand that it creates jobs, it drives the economy.
