Americans Against The Border Wall…

Washington Post-ABC News poll: Sixty percent of adults oppose building a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, while 37 percent support it. Of these respondents, 47 percent are strongly against it. It is worth noting that 76 percent of Trump voters support it, while 91 percent of Hillary Clinton voters don’t. But what the January poll also found is that even among those who supported neither of the candidates, the consensus (69 percent vs. 27 percent) is against building the wall.

It is clear the vast majority of Americans do not want the border wall that Trump made a center piece of his campaign. Rational folks know that a) we cannot afford a border wall, b) we do not need a border wall, and c) simply increasing and improving border surveillance will be adequate.

Democrats, independents, many republicans, with the exception of die-hard Trump supporters, are opposed to the wall. It is likely to remain a political football but one that will never score.

It does keep the Trump xenophobic base pumped however. Which we suppose is the real purpose to begin with.

  1. Wow, that’s amazing, 60% of Americans oppose spending tens of billions of dollars to create a gross insult to our next-door neighbor and second-biggest customer.

    I mean, it’s amazing that the number is as low as 60%. Don’t people know anything?

  2. Trump continually said that Mexico would pay for the wall. I suspect that many of the wall supporters still think that is the case. I wonder how much the support drops if it is made clear to them that we will pay for the wall?
