Public Does NOT Support Trump's Inhumane Border Policy
Donald Trump's new policy of separating immigrant children from their parents at the border, and confining those children indefinitely in detention facilities, is not going over well with the American public. This is clearly shown in three new polls.
In the Quinnipiac poll, the public opposed the policy by 39 points. In the CNN poll, the opposition was by 39 points. And in the CBS News poll, the opposition was by 50 points. Those are some pretty overwhelming numbers.
In the three polls, about 36% to 58% of Republicans approved of the policy. That's not enough to offset the overwhelming disapproval of Independents (66% to 68%) and Democrats (90% to 92%) -- and it could signal a real problem for Republicans in the coming election.
In spite of the intense public backlash, Trump has made it clear he's not going to change the policy. And so far, only a few Republicans have said they disapproved of the policy and none have said they would support a law changing that policy. If the policy is still in effect in November, it could turn the blue wave into a blue tsunami -- and sweep many Republicans out of office.
The Quinnipiac University Poll was done between June 14th and 17th of a national sample of 905 voters, with a margin of error of 3.9 points.
The CNN / SSRS Poll was done between June 14th and 17th of a national sample of 1,012 adults, with a margin of error of 3.7 points.
The CBS News Poll was done between June 14th and 17th of a national sample of 1,100 adults, with a margin of error of 3 points.
