CNSNews reports that a new Quinnipiac poll of 1,147 voters shows that 43 percent now support a border wall, while 54 percent oppose it.
This represents a five point jump from August, when support for the wall was at 38 percent.
By party affiliation, Republicans overwhelmingly support building the wall, Democrats overwhelmingly oppose it, and Independents are divided:
- Republican Support: 86%
- Democrat Opposition: 90%
- Independents: 47% Support, 51% Oppose
Dan discusses the poll in his podcast today where he ties the results directly to President Trump’s border security messaging.
“This is [due to] President Trump hammering over and over the importance of this immigration issue, mitigating chaos at the border, enhancing our border security , and making sure people know this is an issue, it’s a prominent issue and it matters to them. The Quinnipiac poll is black and white,” he said.
