Poll: Democrats in denial on illegal immigration
A new Rasmussen poll just out shows voters continue to view illegal immigration as a serious problem but don’t think Democrats care enough to stop it. Data also shows that voters are willing to consider cutting foreign aid as a means to stop the flow of illegals into the United States.
Rasmussen reports that 67 percent of all Likely U.S. Voters think illegal immigration is a serious problem in America today, with 47 percent who say it’s a Very Serious one. 32 percent say it’s not a serious problem, but that includes only 8 percent who rate it as Not At All Serious.
That’s 47 percent to 8 percent in terms of voter intensity. Here are the toplines…

New Jersey Democrats continue to kid themselves into believing their tired mantra that “New Jersey is different” – in the process ignoring the fact that nobody is running in “New Jersey” this year. That’s New Jersey… as in the whole state. The electoral battles this year are being fought in little pieces of New Jersey – pieces that in no way reflect the state as a whole.
Take one of those statewide polls the Establishment is so fond of pointing to and then pull out Montclair, Newark, Paterson, Hoboken, Jersey City, Trenton, Camden, and most of the Abbott Districts… and then tell us what Phil “Sanctuary State” Murphy’s numbers look like. Because none of those places are in contention this year. Not a damned one of those votes matter.
Of particular concern to the Goldman-Sucks wing of the Democrat Party, is data that shows the $30,000 to $50,000 income group is most concerned about illegal immigration, with 73 percent saying illegal immigration is a serious problem in America today – 51 percent who say it’s a Very Serious one. Just 25 percent say it’s not a serious problem – that includes only 6 percent who rate it as Not At All Serious.
70 percent of the working poor (earning under $30,000); 65 percent of those earning $50,000 to $100,000; and 59 percent of those earning $100,000 to $200,000 say illegal immigration is a serious problem in America today. Even economic elites (those pocketing over $200,000) say illegal immigration is a serious problem, albeit by margins of 60% to 40%. 39 percent of these say it is a “very serious” problem, with 11 percent saying it is “not at all serious”.
The Democrats’ former blue-collar base appears to understand market economics and the policy of using illegal wage-slaves in the gray economy to undercut the public relations gimmick of raising the minimum wage. Every duplicitous Democrat on the ballot needs to have this cranked up their bunghole.
Stand against the gray economy and the exploitation of undocumented immigrants… stand with organized labor.
