President Trump is not alone in the fight for the wall. According to a recent poll, support for President Trump’s wall increased from 34 percent from a year ago to 42 percent on the present day.
Support for President Trump’s wall along the U.S.-Mexico border is at an all-time high just weeks into the partial government shutdown which began over a border security dispute for funding. Many are upset Democrats have been vacationing in Hawaii and in Puerto Rico instead of doing the job they were elected to do. The Democrat’s careless actions have not be applauded on either side of the political spectrum.
According to the results of an ABC News and Washington Post poll released Sunday morning, 42 percent of Americans support a wall. That is up from 34 percent one year ago and a previous high of 37 percent in 2017.
Washington Examiner reported with 54 percent, the majority poll still oppose building a border wall. However, that opposition is shrinking, as 63 percent opposed the wall a year ago and the previous low was 60 percent two years ago.
Trump’s demand for roughly $5.6 billion in border security funding led to what is now the longest government shutdown in history as Democrats in Congress reject any spending bills that include money for a wall. Last week, the fight escalated when Trump delivered a prime-time address to the nation to make his case for a physical barrier along the southern border, calling the situation a crisis. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., delivered a rebuttal, arguing Trump was propagating a “manufactured crisis.”
According to the poll, only about a quarter of Americans — 24 percent — believe there is a crisis-level situation in regards to immigration at the border.
