At the same time last year, the poll claimed that only 34 percent of voters supported a wall, but now, support President Trump’s wall has soared to 42 percent overall.
Most notably, swing voters are switching the support, as a means to control illegal invasion.
“Last year, less than 30 percent of swing voters said they supported the wall. Today, their support has soared to 40 percent, an 11 percent increase in support year-to-year.”
“Likewise, now 67 to 87 percent of Republican voters and conservatives support building a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border.”
And, even more interesting, democrats haven’t increased their opposition by even one percent. So basically, the same old haters want open migration, while people with the ability to think logically are changing their minds—which many argue is something democrats fear more than anything.
“Among midwest voters, college educated voters, men, and white Americans, the border wall has jumped in popularity since last year.
“For midwest voters, the poll claimed only 35 percent supported the wall last year. Today, midwest support for the wall is up to nearly 50 percent, a 14 percent increase.
“Only 30 percent of college educated voters supported the wall last year, the poll stated. This year, 43 percent support the wall, a jump of 13 percent. Similarly, a majority of 54 percent of white Americans now support the wall, up ten percent from last year, and nearly 50 percent of American men support the wall, an increase of nine percentage points.”
The government is undergoing a partial shutdown while democrats dig their heels in the sand, determined to ignore border security.
Funding for any sort of physical barrier is being fought tooth and nail by liberals, despite having previously supported the efforts in prior years.
Likewise, a handful of Senate Republicans, meanwhile, crafted a plan to give amnesty to illegal aliens that ultimately failed to gain traction, and many people are thrilled by that.
“Border crossings in November 2018 — the last month from which data is available — hit close to 52,000, marking the highest level of illegal immigration in the month of November since 2006.
“Projections indicate that illegal immigration for next year will reach 600,000 border crossings, the highest level of illegal immigration in more than a decade.
“Meanwhile, drug overdoses in 2017 killed an unprecedented 72,287 U.S. residents, nearly three times the number of individuals killed by global terrorism. Nearly 50,000 of those deadly overdoses were caused by either heroin or fentanyl.”
Heroin and fentanyl are two of the prominent illegal drugs carried over the border using trucks and other methods.

The fact that this poll was conducted by the Washington Post and ABC signals a major shift.
