Bad news for the fake news Leftist narrative. As it turns out, most Americans want border security.
But if you listen to Democrats, you might wonder how fence companies survive. No matter where you live or visit, you seen fencing, gates, or other “barriers”. And where these barriers exists, things remain in or out, depending on the choice of the institution.
This fact is verified by a recent report by Rasmussen:
In the midst of a government shutdown over disagreements about building a border wall, two-out-of-three voters still think illegal immigration is a serious issue, but nearly half of voters think the government isn’t working hard enough to stop it.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 48% of Likely U.S. Voters think the government is doing too little to stop illegal immigration, up five points from 43% who felt the same way in August. Twenty-eight percent (28%) believe the government is doing too much to stop illegal immigration, down from 34%, while 17% think the government’s level of action is about right. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
The survey of 1,000 Likely Voters was conducted on January 8-9, 2019 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.
48 percent say the government is doing too little. 17 percent like the direction of President Trump.
If my math is correct, 65 percent of people want the government to do more or like what Trump is doing.
Even without the 17 percent who like the direction, the cry for a border wall is overwhelmingly larger than any polling related to Obamacare. And yet, “Pass the bill to see what’s in the bill” Pelosi treated us like R Kelly with a 14-year old virgin.
So what about the narrative the media and other Leftists sell?
Forget that anybody with common sense knows that fences, walls, aka “barriers” work. What I love most is how Democrats continue to declare they want border security.
Even Alisyn Camerota got frustrated with Democrat House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer for the “confusing” and “perplexing” Democrat hypocrisy. She calls him out on opposing border barriers now when Democrats supported them before.
Camerota: I mean her’s what’s so confusing, is that by Wednesday, the President had moved away from his wall. He was then calling it a barrier, calling it a steel barrier. The Democrats aren’t opposed to a barrier at the border, are they?
Hoyer: Let me repeat. We are prepared to negotiate on border security…largest amount of infrastructure money that was spent in the last 10 years was in 2009 when Democrats were in charge of everything. So this is not a question of where we’re not in favor of strengthening the border
Camerota: And that’s why it’s so perplexing. That’s what’s so perplexing. If you say you believe in border security, and the president does, surely there’s a compromise
Hoyer toes the party line. He goes back in the past when Democrats spent money, yet accomplished nothing. And when asked why they won’t spend a pittance in comparison the amount he mentioned, his comeback centers on the shutdown.
So who’s responsible for the shutdown, when the president requests a measly amount of money, and the Democrats throw a tantrum.
Regardless, the polling on this issue more than favors the president. And the numbers are only getting better for him.
I’ve already predicted where this ends, and it’s not good for the Democrats. The fact that CNN called Hoyer, i.e. Democrats out poses a real problem for them. Because even CNN sees the fallacy in this strategy.
