Poll Reveals 60 Percent of Americans Don't Want a Border Wall with Mexico

An extensive new poll from the Pew Research Center shows that almost 60 percent of all registered American voters oppose the construction of a 2,000-mile-long wall running the length of the border between the United States and Mexico.

Just 38 percent of all voters support such a border wall, according to the Pew poll.

On the Republican side, a solid majority — 67 percent — supports a U.S.-Mexico border wall. On the Democratic side, however, 86 percent of voters oppose a wall.

By a margin of 64 percent to 32 percent, voters on the Republican side who support Sen. Ted Cruz
also say they favor a wall.

Voters who support Ohio Gov. John Kasich oppose a physical barrier between the countries by a margin of 53 percent to 45 percent.

A 56-percent majority of Republican voters believe that immigrants are a net burden to the United States, according to the Pew poll. Nearly 70 percent of Trump supporters call immigrants a burden. Only 51 percent of Cruz supporters describe immigrants as a burden. And roughly half of Kasich supporters describe immigrants as a net benefit to the nation.

GOP voters also have differences when it comes to dealing with the issue of illegal immigration. A slight majority — 52 percent — of Trump supporters flatly reject any policy which would provide an avenue for illegal immigrants to stay in the United States. Among Cruz supporters, just over 40 percent want to deport all illegal immigrants with no legal recourse. Only about a quarter of Kasich supporters want to oust all illegal aliens.

Overall, just 32 percent of all Republican voters believe the federal government should instigate a national law enforcement effort to deport illegal immigrants, the Pew poll shows.

Among Democratic voters, supporters of both Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders oppose building a U.S. Mexico wall overwhelmingly. Sanders voters oppose it a bit more — 91 percent to 83 percent.
