Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

The Drudge Report mined the following headlines today.

James Carville’s famous line, “it’s the economy, stupid.” is the counterpoint to his equally infamous, and prejudicial “trailer park” line.  It’s a classic example of the necessity for discernment, for sifting the wheat from the chaff that MHProNews believes is essential for understanding the industry’s realities today.

Wheat, Chaff, and the Monday Morning Manufactured Housing Sales, Marketing Meeting

Publicly traded manufactured home producers routinely point in their quarterly and/or annual reports how rising employment and rising pay are good for new home sales.  Duh, of course, right?

The jobs growth are in areas that President Obama in his waning days before the 2016 election said would not be coming back. One of the drivers for the Trump team is to prove that their policies are good for the people, business and the nation at large.

The latest Reuters Ipsos poll could, of course, shift between now and the midterms. But the two hot topics, according to other polls, tell us these are issues that should play well for President Donald J. Trump and his party’s partisans.


For those who watch a Trump rally with an open mind, it has a similar feel to the ones in 2016, with one key difference.  Then, those rallies were about promises being made.  Now, they are about the results of promises being kept.


Workers and most businesses alike have reason to smile.  The anti-Trump resistance isn’t giving up.  It will be an interesting, perhaps historic ride to the midterms.
