New polling from the University of Texas shows a plurality of Texans support lowering immigration levels to the United States, including a plurality of Texas Latinos.

The polling was conducted in April 2020 under the auspices of the Texas Politics Project.

The poll data reveals that 39% of respondents believe America is admitting “too many” immigrants, while 29% believe the country is admitting “just the right amount.” Only 19% believe the United States is admitting “too few” immigrants.”

Polling for Latinos, a demographic that skews Democratic, shows opinion similar to that of the general public. 37% of Texas Latinos believe too many immigrants are being admitted to the United States, whereas 31% and 18% believe the nation is admitting the right amount and too few respectively.

The data could represent a wrench in the plans of Texas Democrats and progressives, some of whom speak openly of their plans to turn the conservative redoubt blue through a program of mass immigration with the cooperation of major corporations and business interests seeking cheap labor.

44% of White voters support lowering immigration levels, and 26% of Black voters do as well.

There’s additional polling that suggests considerable support for immigration enforcement and reduction policies within the Hispanic community, dispelling a Democratic narrative that all Hispanic voters support amnesty for illegal immigrants and opening the borders. A February Pew Research poll revealed that a majority of Hispanic voters reject the premise that the United States is obligated to admit Central American refugees to the country, a phenomenon increasingly seen through the arrival of massive migrant ‘caravans’ at the southern border.

Even more overwhelming support for immigration restriction has emerged in the light of the Chinese coronavirus epidemic, with some polls showing that 80% of Americans support an immigration moratorium in the light of the unprecedented economic situation caused by the disease.

Polls for the Presidential Election Are Tightening, And Fast

This race is getting hot.

New polls for the November presidential election are gravitating in President Donald Trump’s direction, after months of polling that indicated Democratic challenger Joe Biden was dominating the race.

Polls from Rasmussen and the Hill have indicated that the race is close, and even within the margin of error, with the President regaining several percentage points. Polling aggregator RealClearPolitics reveals that recent polls show the President has gained 3-5 percent support.

Polls in battleground states such as Michigan and Pennsylvania show a race that is statistically tied. A Zogby Analytics poll of North Carolina, Ohio, Florida and Pennsylvania showed a razor-thin race in the latter three states, with Biden leading by no more than three percentage points in all of them.

Trump’s gain in recent rounds of polling may be a product of a refocused campaign strategy, with the President branching out to the constituency of white working class voters that proved essential to his shock 2016 election victory after former campaign manager Brad Parscale was reassigned.

Razor-thin election margins could mean the election is once again decided by the electoral college, as Biden’s lead in national polling places undue consideration on large margins of victory in reliably Democratic states such as California and New York.

Biden has been reluctant to appear in public, scheduling only a handful of events in which he’s received questions from the press. The President’s increasingly focused coronavirus press briefings may have signaled his intention to successfully control the pandemic.
