A new ABC/WaPost poll delivered bad news for Team Pelosi-Schumer and their border security shutdown tactics with the proposed border wall soaring in popularity across America’s voter demographics. According to the poll, 7 percent more voters overall support building a border wall along the U.S.-Mexico border than they did last year. Swing voters in particular favor border security with an 11 percent increase in support. Other notable demographics include a surge in support among college-educated and independent Americans. This is a swift kick in the pants for Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, who shut down Congress last week and this week are refusing to meet with President Trump, citing their wall protest. Oops.
Here’s more form Breitbart…
President Trump’s proposed wall along the United States-Mexico border has soared in popularity with American voters across the board, as he battles a split GOP-Democrat Congress to secure funding for the barrier.
The latest ABC News/Washington Post poll reveals a major shift among nearly all demographic groups across the country when it comes to support for a border wall at the southern border.
This time last year, the poll claimed that only 34 percent of voters supported a wall at the U.S.-Mexico border. Today, support for the wall has climbed to 42 percent overall. Most notable, swing voters are increasingly supportive of the border wall to control immigration.
Last year, less than 30 percent of swing voters said they supported the wall. Today, their support has soared to 40 percent, an 11 percent increase in support year-to-year.
