POLL: Voters are Blaming the Biden Regime for the Crisis at the Border
American voters largely believe that there is a crisis taking place at America’s southern border. In addition, they’re blaming President Joe Biden’s policies for generating this crisis.
According to a Rasmussen poll, 69% of likely US voters believe the present situation with migrants at the US-Mexico border is in a state of crisis. This marks a sizable increase from May 2021, when that number stood at 66%.
Only 19% don’t believe there is a crisis situation at the border, while an additional 12% are unsure. 30% of voters gave Biden good or excellent marks for the way he has handled immigration issues. 51% gave Biden a poor grade on immigration.
83% of Republicans, 57% of Democrats, and 68% of independent voters agree that there is currently a crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border. 57% of Democrats gave Biden good or excellent ratings for the way he has tackled immigration issues. Only 11% of Republicans and 21% of independent voters share similar views . The majority of Republicans (78%) and independent voters (54%) gave Biden a poor rating on immigration, while only 22% of Democrats did so.
76% of Republicans, 48% of independent voters and 27% of Democrats indicated that they strongly agree there is a crisis at the southern border “because the Biden Administration has refused to enforce immigration laws and finish the border wall.”
26% of whites, 48% of black voters and 36% of non-white minorities gave Biden good or excellent ratings for his management of issues connected to immigration. White voters (54%) are more likely than black voters (34%) or other non-white minorities (46%) to Strongly Agree there is a crisis at the border “because the Biden Administration has refused to enforce immigration laws and finish the border wall.”
Indeed, the situation at the border is a public policy disaster no matter how one slices it. Republicans will have to do more than just criticize the Biden regime for his immigration failures. They will need to offer up concrete proposals such as an immigration moratorium, ending birthright citizenship, and doing away with chain migration in order to fully address the mass migration — the existential question of our epoch.
Cheap talking points are simply not going to cut it in this crisis moment.
