Trump Winning Bigly on Immigration: High Poll Numbers Turning Former Critics Into Supporters

Elder Patriot – President Trump has won the immigration debate.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 67% of all likely U.S. voters think illegal immigration is a serious problem in America today, with 47% who say it’s a very serious one.

A scant thirty-two percent (32%) say it’s not a serious problem, but that includes only eight percent (8%) who rate it as not at all serious.

Only 8 persons in every 100 believe the Democrats talking points that illegal immigration is a “manufactured crisis.”  That’s about as failed a talking point as the has ever been.

Of course, coming off their nearly three-year long collusion delusion, it’s a wonder that even 8% believe what the Democrats or the mainstream media are telling them these days.

There’s another poll that Rasmussen Reports released today, its the daily Presidential Tracking Poll.

That polls shows that 51% of likely U.S. voters approve of President Trump’s job performance while forty-seven percent (47%) disapprove.  That’s a 6-point jump since the release of the Mueller Report. That was the day it became okay to believe Donald Trump more than the mainstream media.

Those are very strong reelection numbers.  Point of comparison: At the same point in his first term Obama’s approval rating was 47%.

Remember this, President Trump staked out his position on illegal immigration within minutes of coming down the escalator in Trump Tower and he was vilified for it by globalists of both parties.  He’s also taken a relentless beating by the mainstream media over it, too.

Until now.  

Two leading politicians, one from each party, who haven’t uttered a positive word about President Trump in two-and-a-half years, have now come around to his point of view on illegal immigration.

Bernie Sanders on Sunday night: “If you open the borders, my God, there’s a lot of poverty in this world, and you’re going to have people from all over the world. And I don’t think that’s something that we can do at this point. Can’t do it. So that is not my position.”

Mitt Romney, yesterday: I’m “more of a hawk on immigration” than President Donald Trump.  Riiight.

A campaign spokesman for Romney “explained” that the candidate’s views have evolved since his 2012 presidential campaign.

Polls have a way of helping craven political animals to “evolve.”

Funny that, eh?
