Three-quarters of Republicans support President Donald J. Trump declaring a national emergency to build a wall along America’s southern border, according to a poll released on Wednesday.
Seventy-six percent of Republicans support President Trump declaring a national emergency to build a wall along the southern border, according to a Morning Consult/Politico survey released on Wednesday.
The poll found that 52 percent of Republicans “strongly support” Trump declaring a national emergency and 24 percent of Republicans somewhat support the president using emergency powers to build a wall.
In contrast, 71 percent of Democrats strongly oppose Trump using building the wall through a national emergency.
When given the choice of whether Trump should shut down the government, Trump should declare an emergency, or Trump should do neither of these options, a near majority of Republican voters said that Trump should declare a national emergency and 12 percent somewhat oppose such a measure.
Forty-seven percent of Republican voters said that Trump should declare a national emergency, 20 percent of Republican voters said that Trump should shut down the government again, and 22 percent said that Trump should do neither of these options.
The poll arises as President Trump recently ended the longest government shutdown in American history in his quest to obtain border wall funding. Congress has re-opened the government until February 15; however, Trump said that there remains a “good chance” he could declare a national emergency to build the wall if Congress will not fund the border wall.
Overall, 81 percent of Republicans approve of President Trump’s job performance, with 51 percent of GOP voters strongly approving of the president’s handling of the presidency…..
81% of GOPer’s like Trump’s job performance….
But only 51 like strongly approve of his job?????
WHAT doe THAT mean?
