Midterm losses for Democrats make trade deals more likely

Washington Post:

Obama to seek GOP help in push for trade pact

The president is already facing fierce blowback from fellow Democrats, who are accusing him of abandoning past promises on trade and potentially undermining his domestic priority.
Democrat opposition to trade deals has always been irrational.  The deals actually benefit US manufacturing jobs which labor for some reason thinks will go elsewhere.  But with the decline in energy prices, the US manufacturing sector is growing again.  Their policy of artificial scarcity of energy helped to drive up prices and made US companies less competitive.  With the shale revolution foreign companies are now building manufacturing facilities in the us many of which are in Texas.
