VIA| Conservative billionaire Donald Trump has been sounding the alarm on the amnesty crisis President Obama has created. He is why the issue of illegal aliens have been front-and-center of every debate.
Now, a new poll from YouGov verifies that GOP primary voters are paying attention, and they overwhelmingly agree: They trust Donald Trump on immigration more than any other candidate running for president.
Considering how pro-amnesty the political establishment is, this is a political earthquake! American voters are clearly fed up with an unprotected Southern border, and almost half (49%) believe Trump has the right ideas to solve this ongoing problem!
That’s an even bigger deal when you realize that no other candidate received more than 11% support. Compared to Trump, they are almost invisible.
In addition, while his opponents have attacked him and the media has smeared him, his approval has only increased. That 49% rating is 14% higher than it was at the end of the Summer.
The poll was especially bad for former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, who seems to be tanking in EVERY poll:
Half of Republicans view Trump as the candidate who can best handle immigration, more than four times the percentage who name Florida Senator Marco Rubio, the son of immigrants, who is in second place, far behind Trump. Only 5% believe former Florida Governor Jeb Bush would do the best job on immigration.
In addition, Americans overall disagree with both of these statements.
Republicans are far more likely than the rest of the public to view illegal immigration as a very serious problem for the country (70% of Republicans say it is, compared with 46% overall). And many also believe illegal immigrants are more likely than others to commit violent crimes (49% of Republicans versus 29% overall). 57% of Republicans believe immigration from Mexico has a negative impact on the U.S. economy; 37% of all adults do.
If you couldn’t picture just how much more GOP voters agree with Trump than any other candidate when it comes to the issue of illegal immigration, this chart summarizes it. Incredible!
