Voters want strong borders/ Just 10% affected by shutdown

Two fresh national polls provide an insight into the border wall/ government shutdown “crisis” being reported by the media.  On Monday, Rasmussen Reports released a national survey that found 53 percent of Likely U.S. voters think it is better for the United States to tightly control who comes into the country.  39 percent disagreed and say it is better to open our borders to anyone who wants to come here as long as they are not a terrorist or a criminal.

According to Rasmussen:  “Most voters continue to favor strongly controlled borders and reject House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s charge that it is immoral for the United States to build a border wall.”  The survey was conducted on January 10 and 13, 2019 by Rasmussen Reports.  The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95 percent level of confidence. 

Today, Rasmussen Reports released the results of a national survey that finds just 10 percent of Likely U.S. Voters say they have been personally affected by the shutdown in a major way.  Another 35 percent say that in terms of their own personal life, they have felt a minor impact, while 54 percent say the shutdown has had no impact at all on them. 

According to Rasmussen:  “Voters don’t care too much for the federal government, and the number who say they have been badly hurt by the continuing government shutdown remains small.”  This survey was conducted on January 14-15, 2019 by Rasmussen Reports.  The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95 percent level of confidence.
