The third-highest-supported objective, at 35%, was “Provide health care benefits to retired coal miners.” 44% said that that goal isnt worth shutting down the government in order for it to be attained. I.e.: more think that those miners should be left to die than think that continuing to provide for their black-lung treatments (etc.) is essential. The lowest support of all, at only 27%, was “Fund a wall along the Mexican border.” Donald Trump’s alleged support for that is shared by far fewer Americans than oppose it. 61% of respondents on that say it’s “NOT important enough to prompt a shutdown.” In between was the 32% who wanted to shut down the government unless it would “Decrease funding for domestic programs.” By contrast, 48% said that that goal was “NOT important enough to prompt a shutdown.” In other words: congressmen who would vote to shut down the federal government unless the proposed budget reducesfunding for domestic programs” would be opposed by a very large majority (48% to 32%) of America’s voters: 50% more Americans oppose than support it.

British manufacturers built 170,691 vehicles this March - 7.3% more than last March UK car manufacturing reached its highest level in 17 years last month, with British car makers producing 170,691 across the four weeks. According to the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT), export demand helped the country increase production by 7.3% compared with the same month in 2016. Top 10 best selling cars in Britain In the year to date, 471,695 cars have been produced, which is 33,305 more than the same point last year. Output was driven by overseas demand, which helped to offset a decline at home, with domestic demand down 4.3% this quarter. SMMT chief executive Mike Hawes said “UK car manufacturing is accelerating thanks to billions of pounds of investment committed over the past few years. A large proportion are the latest low emission diesels and it’s essential for future growth and employment that we encourage these newer, cleaner diesels onto UK roads and avoid penalising consumers who choose diesel for its fuel efficiency and lower CO2 emissions.

Chicago White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu was forced to leave Wednesday's game against the Kansas City Royals with a hip injury. The White Sox officially announced Abreu's injury as a mild right hip flexor strain. He's listed as day-to-day and will be re-evaluated in Detroit when the team begins a weekend series against the Tigers . The White Sox have entered a full-scale rebuild after trading Chris Sale and Adam Eaton in the offseason, so Abreu's presence is essential to at least help them remain competitive in 2017. The 30-year-old Abreu did spend time on the disabled list early in 2014 with ankle tendinitis but has otherwise stayed healthy in his MLB career. He's been a terrific hitter in the middle of the order with at least 25 homers and a .347 on-base percentage in each of his first three seasons. The White Sox are a team that lacks punch in the lineup.
