While new media stars including members of AOC’s “the squad” are pushing the Dem party further and further left, more data is backing up the idea that the majority of the country sides with tougher border and immigration controls.
A focus group of 12 swing voters in a study by Axios in the key battleground state of Michigan found the majority agreed with Trump’s handling of the immigration crisis.
In addition 8 out of 12 do NOT agree with Democrats nearly unanimous belief migrant detainees should be treated better.
The majority of a group of 12 swing voters we spoke to here said they think President Trump is handling the immigration crisis “professionally and responsibly.”
Why it matters: By all accounts, immigration is and will be one of the most important issues of the 2020 presidential election — and it could help Trump win over even some voters who haven’t always supported Republicans.
