A new poll found Pennsylvania Republican voters want political candidates to prioritize preserving and growing manufacturing including tariffs in the United States.

Pennsylvania manufacturing has been the backbone of economic impact of more than $113 billion dollars and accounts for nearly 10% of all jobs in the state.

Scott Paul, president of the Alliance for American Manufacturing, said they partnered with Morning Consult and conducted a national poll with Republican voters in Pennsylvania on their attitudes on issues affecting blue-collar work and policies to move the nation forward.

"Republican voters definitely want their presidential candidate to put front and center a strong trade policy that includes tariffs on China," Paul reported. "As well as other pro manufacturing policies like investing in our infrastructure, prioritizing blue-collar jobs."

The poll revealed in Pennsylvania, 83% of Republican voters agreed the federal government's purchase of too many foreign-made goods over "Made in USA" products has caused manufacturing job loss in America.

Paul noted voters support expansion of the pending tariffs on foreign steel and various Chinese products.

"A large percentage of Republican primary voters in Pennsylvania think those tariffs need to be increased," Paul emphasized. "In fact, to help American manufacturing, to help jobs here, and to also take on some of the policies of the Chinese Communist Party."

Paul added voters want to see the government in Washington show they have their backs on more manufacturing opportunities in the Keystone State. The poll showed 86% of likely Republican primary voters think it is important for the U.S. to maintain a strong domestic steel industry.
