Default polling proves President Trump is right — 'Americans are #Dreamers, too'

Quote:
A new left-leaning poll proves the point President Donald Trump made at his State of the Union address: “Americans are dreamers, too.”

According to a Harvard University-Harris Poll, a majority of Americans actually agree with not only one but all of Trump’s immigration proposals.

A stunning 65 percent of Americans support a DACA deal that ends chain migration, eliminates the random visa lottery and secures the border with a wall. Only 35 percent of Americans did not agree.

Nearly 70 percent of Americans oppose the visa lottery which allows immigrants to be picked at random for entry into the country.
In fact, nearly 80 percent of Americans believe that immigration should be based on merit and skills, not just family ties.


Even more interesting, the poll shows that 60 percent of Americans believe that even if dreamers are allowed to stay, they should not be given preference to bring relatives to the United States.

When faced with a choice, nearly 80 percent want secure borders rather than open borders.

Specifically, 61 percent think that current border security is inadequate, and more than half of Americans — 54 percent — support a physical barrier along the southern U.S. border. This is particularly bad news for democrats such as Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) who recently reneged on funding the border wall.

The shocking poll underscores the progress Trump has made in his push for immigration reform. When he launched his bid for president, a Pew Research Center pollshowed that only 46 percent of Americans supported a border wall. In 2016, The Washington Post even poked fun at Trump for actually making the border wall less popular at just 36 percent but no that is no longer the case, either. The rise in poll numbers shows Trump’s persistence on the issue finally pays dividends.

The recent Harvard-Harris poll showing Americans’ shifting view is devastating for democrats during a time when they are pushing full amnesty for dreamers, while not giving any ground on funding a wall, improving border security, or reforming other immigration policies. Even Mark Penn, longtime democratic pollster and senior adviser to Bill and Hillary Clinton, recently admitted that the time has come for democrats to face the music and make a deal.

Finally, what is most surprising about the poll is the fact that it was taken before last week’s State of the Union address during which Americans had the opportunity to meet — via their televisions — families of victims killed at the hands of illegal immigrants.

Those heart-wrenching stories included two teenage girls killed at the hands of illegal immigrant MS-13 gang members on Long Island. It would be interesting to see if support for border security is even higher now in the light of the “Trump bump”that the president received from his heartfelt address.

The bottom line is Americans agree with Trump’s immigration policies, and it does not bode well for democrats who appear to either be tone deaf on the matter, blinded by their open-borders worldview that continues to protect illegals ahead of American citizens, or they intentionally want to keep the issue boiling in advance of the 2018 midterm elections.

The new polls illustrate that Americans feel as Trump feels — that Americans are “Dreamers” in our own right, and that we dream of a nation in which our children can be safe from predatory gang violence, illegal activity and that our children should be afforded the right to live long enough to fulfill their dreams, too.

Democrats’ failure to understand this basic premise just as their 15-point lead collapsed this week to just two points, may prove to be fatal for them in the 2018 midterm elections.

I wonder if the Dems will force another governemnt shutdown next week over illegals

That was, hands down, the best line in the speech. Uncharacteristically well delivered too.

Trump did a fantastic job in the SOTU. Every SOTU before him, by Obama and Bush ended up being a laundry list of policies coupled by a recounting of every little tiny group in the U.S. that has an activist of two pretending to speak for all of them. It was refreshing to hear a speech that united Americans as Americans.

The Democrats will pay politically for acting like asses though. As one woman put it concerning their booing and sitting on their butts when the four parents of deceased MS-13 victims were talked about......."What's wrong with them?"

I'm happy his popularity is rising and people are coming around. Hopefully the alt-left mobs and their allies in the media are losing their grip and people are seeing past the bullshit.

Democrats set themselves up for the rebuke Trump gave them about co-opting the term "Dreamers" for DACA recipients. It was only a matter of time before someone with a big enough pair was going to shoot it down by pointing out the American Dream is what Americans shoot for. It's just another way Trump has shown how pathetic our Republican leaders have been in defending their constituents and advancing conservative principles.
