Poll: 68% of Voters Think Illegal Immigration a Serious Problem

Voters increasingly believe that illegal immigration is a major problem, and few feel the government is doing enough to handle it.

A new Rasmussen Reports poll shows 68 percent of American voters believe that illegal immigration is a serious problem in America today. The poll also shows that 43 percent of voters consider illegal immigration to be a “very serious” problem.

As noted by Rasmussen, the new poll compares to 80% and 50% respectively in August 2015 and suggests that President Trump’s focus on the problem has lessened voter concern somewhat.

A minority of respondents thirty-two percent (32%) now say illegal immigration is not a serious problem, but that includes only nine percent (9%) who say it’s Not At All Serious.

Rasmussen asked:

1* How serious a problem is illegal immigration in America today? 2* Is the government doing too much or too little to stop illegal immigration? Or is the level of action about right?

The revelations from the latest Rasmussen poll came as earlier in June a Gallup poll revealed Immigration and Illegal aliens as the number two problem facing the U.S.

The Gallup poll showed 14 percent of Americans consider Immigration and Illegal aliens to be the top problem facing the U.S., Gallup noted that the “14% mentioning immigration is one of the highest levels Gallup has recorded in the past 12 years.”

The survey of 1,000 Likely Voters was conducted on August 26-27, 2018 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence.

  1. The number one problem in America is Abortion – especially funded by any form of government (which consistently steals our wealth “legally” and redistributes it as IT sees fit!). Number two problem is immigration which includes illegal criminal migration and legal limits set far too high. Blatantly importing refugees from “enemy” Muslim countries is an additional factor.

    These two problems are intrinsic to each other. The GOAL is to destroy traditional Americanism! The Progressive left knows it cannot sell its globalist Utopian LIE to the American people born into a legacy of personal liberty and personal responsibility. Our values are rooted in Judao-Christian Virtues and the FACT that all men are created equal; there are NO Natural Superiors. Furthermore, the Progressive left view themselves not just superior to the ordinary man and woman but ABOVE Truth and Justice and believe They and THEY alone deserve to own the world!! (At least 3 of the Deadly sins are at work here; PRIDE, GREED and Envy but they only ever mention Greed because it is the mantra of communists – which is exactly what they are – to stir up ENVY in order to agitate the masses within a climate of Materialism to promote World Communism!)

    So they kill Tens of millions of unborn American Citizens in the name of “choice” and then seek to import as many of the 600 million people – mostly in 3rd world SOCIALIST countries – who wish to move here as an effort to dissolve all things Western Civilization Americanism.

  2. NOW we need to ‘educate’ the remaining 32% !!! Of course, that means pulling them out of their little bubble of self indulgence first…..Remember the story about the farmer that hit his mule with a 2 x 4 to get his attention? Not suggesting you use a 2 x 4…..but keep force feeding them the information and statistics about the violent crimes, over crowed schools, hospitals and welfare benefits at taxpayer (their) expense.

    Writers such as Brady, R. Mitchell, M. Shannon and others are on the front line of defending our nation. One doesn’t have to be a writer of their caliber to be effective. I’m a prime example of that with the ONE AMERICAN pieces I send out and find their way to facebook via others. There IS power in numbers!

    Want facts on Immigration Law? Google U.S. Government Immigration Law. Even with judges ruling against them, they are THE LAW….

    Midterm elections are a great opportunity to get involved and make a difference….a failure to vote is as harmful as a vote against…and effects every single American.
