According to David Millward:

I would not be as impertinent as to guess the political leanings of Maine’s lobstermen. But it would be fair to say they could be characterised as blue-collar workers and part of the demographic targeted by the Trump campaign.

A couple of weeks ago I spent some time with them and learned at first hand the impact climate change is having at least on one industry.

Warming sea waters have seen lobsters migrate north.

 

That must explain why lobster catches have been going up in leaps and bounds in Maine for the last 30 years, at least until last year. (Obviously, that is when the lobsters’ long march to colder waters must have begun!)
