Poll: Most Americans Are Critical of Government’s Handling of Situation at U.S.-Mexico Border

George W. Bush doesn’t think immigration restriction is a winning issue.

Pew Research Center:

“The government receives negative ratings for how it has handled the situation at the border. About two-thirds of U.S. adults (68%) say that the government is doing a very (33%) or somewhat (35%) bad job of dealing with the increased number of people seeking asylum at the country’s southern border, while fewer than half as many (29%) say it is doing a very or somewhat good job. …

However, majorities in both parties say the government has done a bad job of dealing with the influx of asylum seekers at the border: 86% of Republicans rate the government’s performance negatively, as do 56% of Democrats. …”

Some highlights:

72% of Republican voters think illegal immigration is a very big problem. The polls continue to show it has become their top issue.

51% of Republican voters now say that illegal aliens should not be allowed to stay in the country. The polls have flipped on the issue as support for amnesty has evaporated.

92% of Republican voters want to decrease the number of asylum seekers coming here. 68% of Democrats want to reduce the numbers.

46% of Republican voters want to deport illegal aliens. This is now the largest faction inside the party. This is another recent change.
