APPLETON, Wis. — Voters who supported Barack Obama in 2012 and then Donald Trump in 2016 are sick of Trump, saying in a focus group here that they're getting tired of his "lies" and the way he treats people.

Why it matters: Trump barely won Wisconsin, where he got roughly 22,000 more votes than Hillary Clinton, and these swing voters were decisive. If he's losing them, it will be harder to win the state again with just his base supporters.

Former President Barack Obama posted his year-end list of his favorite books, movies, and music that he found "most though-provoking, inspiring, or just plain loved" on Facebook Friday morning.

Details: Obama's favorite book was his wife Michelle's, "Becoming" ("obviously my favorite!" he wrote). He also gave a shout out to movies like "Black Panther" and "Eighth Grade," as well as songs such as "I Like It" by Cardi B and Prince's "Mary Don't You Weep."
