The 19 heartland states have a higher percentage of employment tasks that could be automated. The danger likewise successfully parts along political party lines. Practically every one of the states that voted Republican in the 2016 presidential election have the most astounding exposures to work misfortune chance. Specifically, states that have an overwhelming assembling work base—Wisconsin, Ohio, and Iowa—that swung the election for Donald Trump have 27% of the employments that could be automated in the close term, as indicated by Reuters.
