Poll Shows Majority of Americans Not in Favor of Abolishing ICE
Some of the more extreme lefties have this crackpot theory about locking up the midterm elections. They think if they attempt to put the kibosh on ICE and open up the borders, voters will flock to them. Like Michael Moore to Wendy's on free frosty day. They're certain opening the borders is a winning issue.
Except the polls are telling a different story.
A growing number of Democrats are calling for abolishing the federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency, but even among voters in their own party, there’s not much support for the idea.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that only 25% of Likely U.S. Voters favor getting rid of ICE whose duties include border control. Fifty-five percent (55%) are opposed. Twenty percent (20%) are undecided.
Sixty-nine percent (69%) of Republicans and 53% of voters not affiliated with either major political party oppose getting rid of ICE. Democrats agree by a narrower 44% to 36% margin.
Thirty-three percent (33%) of all voters believe the U.S. government is too aggressive in deporting those who are in this country illegally. But a plurality (46%) disagrees and says the government isn’t aggressive enough. Just 13% consider the current number of deportations as about right.
Geez, the left was making it out as if abolishing ICE was a mainstream idea. I think we can go ahead and declare this leftist narrative busted.
Contrary to the left's now-failed narrative, a whole buttload of Americans think ICE needs to step things up. Even most Democrats still think an open border policy is dumber than blaming the Donald for your inability to open a pickle jar.
Something tells me those open border leftists are wishing they'd picked a different cause right about now. The takeaway here is most Americans aren't as far left as the lefties would like us to think. At least on the issue of immigration.
The bets are on for how long it takes those leftists to start backtracking.
