American Approval for Trump’s Border Wall SKYROCKETS!

Despite the media working overtime to sell the narrative that President Donald Trump is out of control in his insistence on a southern border, a new ABC News / Washington Post poll shows that a growing number of Americans are moving in his direction.

The joint poll conducted by ABC News and the Washington Post runs counter to their own recent stories. Both reported that support for a wall was waning but this most recent poll shows the opposite. Support for the wall has never been as high as it is now.

A slight majority of Americans still don’t agree with the President but the shift in favor of Trump’s plan is dramatic. A little over a year ago, just 34 percent of those polled said they supported the Mexico/U.S. border wall. That number had grown to 42 percent.

As Daniel Chaitin of the Washington Examiner notes: “With 54 percent, the majority of Americans polled still oppose building a border wall. However, that opposition is shrinking, as 63 percent opposed the wall a year ago and the previous low was 60 percent two years ago.”

Throughout this current shutdown spurred by dissent over the wall, the President remains resolute that the wall must be built. Trump’s determination to keep his promise to those who elected him and the rest of this nation has become a line in the sand between him and stonewalling Democrats.

The President’s demand for over 5 billion dollars to fund border security led Democrats to reject any spending that included a wall. Since then, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA, and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D- NY) have continued to argue that Trump has been whipping up his supporters by manufacturing a crisis.

With Washington wringing its hands over whether federal employees will get paid on time, Trump traveled to Texas and met with border agents who are also facing the reality of what a government shutdown means to their bank accounts and families.

There was no dissent from that group of federal employees. During his visit with law enforcement officials he tweeted:

The damage done to our country from a badly broken border — drugs, crime and so much that is bad — is far greater than a shutdown, which the Dems can easily fix as they come back to Washington!

The President is facing two opposing trends that stem from the same issue. Almost half of Americans approve of his handling of the wall but over half blame the President and congressional Republicans for the current stalemate in Congress.

The Drudge Report proclaimed in red last week, “POLL TRUMP APPROVAL LOWEST IN YEAR”. The next day, speaking to the American Farm Bureau Federation in New Orleans seemed unphased by the polls’ mixed bag of results. “When it comes to keeping the American people safe,” he declared, “I will never, ever back down.”

He insisted that the wall must be built to prevent what he called a humanitarian “crisis” at the US/Mexico border. Trump accused Democrats of using wall funding as a way to deny him a win before the 2020 presidential election. “We’re dealing against people who think they can stop me from building the wall,” he said. “They think that’s a good thing for 2020.”

Kellyanne Conway, Trump’s White House counselor told reporters he is willing to go around congressional leaders and bring the negotiation to “rank-and-file” Democrats, in particular moderates who represent districts he won in 2016.

“I would ask a number of them what they think, because I have been reading their regional and local press back home, and what they say there is quite different than some of the national coverage,” she said. “They are telling their constituents: ‘Hey, I’m for some kind of fencing or barrier.’”

But Trump needs to not only take a fight to Congress but win it. “…A loss on what is his biggest campaign promise would be a catastrophe going into 2020,” said one GOP consultant, who requested anonymity to discuss the dynamics.

One this is certain – Americans are growing weary of the media spin. Video of Jim Acosta of CNN painting the border problem as a non-issue and talking heads at MSNBC openly ridiculing the president’s stance on the border calling him a “man alone” on this issue just doesn’t resonate with the average voter.

The only thing manufactured here is a Democrat narrative that is growing more tired by the moment.

  1. Sir is USA reporters only Kain’s fathers children(anti-Christ)????

  2. I dont know where you got your information but the last three polls i have taken shows at least a 98% approval rating! Funny how CNN and several others always show very low!

    1. You are absolutely correct! The 98% are the poll numbers I keep seeing!

  3. It was recently reported that Nancy Pelosi had 6 illegals cross into her property and she called the police instead of inviting them in her home and supporting them. It also said she was trying to get them deported which may be true however why does she want other borderline residence to go through the same situation and accept it. These are the kind of things that should be reported on national news in or not! Illegals are acceptable if it doesn’t happen two Democrats, celebrities, and the wealthy. The poll numbers will be much higher if the truth and all the truth was reported on national TV.

  4. The government shutdown is now is in day 32 and by federal law the president can now start the process of getting rid of (ie) firing worthless federal employees that do nothing but suck the American taxpayer dry. Both the congress and senate should have their comfy pay checks completely stopped as well for their inactions on the jobs that they were elected to do. The American people are suffering because of these dolts and lazy brain dead people. The American Patriots and taxpayers of our great country have had enough of their continued Bullsh*t. This country needs another REVOLUTION so that we the people can take back what has been stolen from us. I say this here and now to every taxpaying American. STOP PAYING YOUR STATE AND FEDERAL TAXES. If 80-90 million American taxpaying citizens stop paying their yearly extortion fees and bring this gravy train to a halt, then the political crooks will certainly take notice really fast and would hopefully work for the American people once again and not the other way round. The Rooster Has Crowed!!!

    1. Mark Levin spoke about this just recently. According to him the count must be thirty working days before the nonessential personnel can be terminated. SO that puts us into February if that is correct. I do not recall the first day the shut down began-do you? I also count the days but it would nee nice to have a target date. MLK day was a hoiday so that wouldn’t count either!

  5. I’m sure even more libs/socialists Wil support the WALL when they realize that illegals will take THEIR “free stuff” !!!

  6. Yes. We need the wall or barrier. I have also seen polls with much higher numbers for the wall. I back our President Trump. The American people need to listen to the border agents and even the past border administration have said it is necessary in certain areas; President Trump has never claimed to put a barrier for the total 2000 miles. The taxpayers spends over 100 billion a year on illegals this has to be stopped along with the drugs and human trafficking

  7. I believe that you have the majority support of American citizen’s in the necessity of whatever it takes to build #The Wall. Even if it takes the Corps of Engineers to build it or by declaring a national State of Emergency–#BuildTheWall.

  8. I have two questions?
    1. Do those who oppose the border wall have walls and locks on their doors at their home? If they do then they should only comment on the border wall (walls and doors of our nation) only after they have torn down all the walls and doors in their home.

    2. Who is paying for, feeding, transporting, etc. these “immigrants”? Some one with a vested interest must be providing support for these people. I have seen the pictures of these people who are supposedly fleeing poverty, etc. and they are dressed with the latest styles, expensive coats, shoes, etc. and are driving expensive and new appearing vehicles.
    The Democrats must be so desperate to get votes since their attempts to propagandized the American people has failed to provide them the votes they wanted that they are trying to import people to vote for them.

    1. I read yesterday Mexico didn’t stop the latest I think 500 supposedly Pelosi told them to let them through. I said something too about all their new clothes,backpacks, shoes. Palosi and Soro’s probably, Palosi has plenty of money.I just would like to know what they are AFRAID OF.

  9. We must build thee wall, shut down the immigration scams like generational immigration for family members and set up an honest system for only LEGAL Immigrants and stop the nonsense with lawyers, judges and blue states trying to rig elections with fake votes.Cannot our Congress do anything correctly? No want wants illegals except the Democratic crooks who need the votes their policies are killers.

  10. The wall needs to be built unless all Wall Deniers take down the walls guarding their property and the walls in their houses! If they do that, they are true believers in their cause and spout all their nonsense and be cold and wet and objects of scorn and merriment!

  11. American Approval for Trump’s Border Wall SKYROCKETS!!!

    Hey demoncrat lawmakers, I guess this approval rating will mean absolutely nothing

    to you, as usual, that’s your hate for US citizens who don’t believe your way

    and so you say to all of Us US citizens who will not support you corrupt rotten deep state

    enslaving politics, kill’em all or enslave & work Us until WE die

    this is the TRUMPing Truth!!!

  12. Demon-crats are playing a losing game, like little spoiled children who can’t get their way.
    Wake up and smell the coffee!
    You will lose in the next election… keep playing your childish games.
    Go President 💪 Trump!!!

  13. The American Citizens have spoken: BUILD THE WALL!! All leaders opposing it should be removed from office with all pay and benefits stopped immediately. They are not doing what they were hired for and should be relieved of all duties without further debate! We are a government “of the people; by the people; for the people” not a government “of the few; by the few; for the few”!! Opposers get out of Dodge and let Trump do what THE PEOPLE elected him to do.

  14. Build the Wall!!!! I was a dem. Till Clinton’s came and it has gotten worse ever since.


  16. Build the WALL! ….now and get rid of Pelosi …Shumer…Cortez…..and all the other wack jobs.

  17. Great article. I’m sure peeeeeelosi and shooemer thought the American people would turn against Trump, but they sure overplayed their hand this time. They are so full of themselves that they REALLY DIDN’T THINK AT ALL!!!!!

  18. The Demoncrat Party is pro-criminals, They want to bring terrorists, drug dealers, thieves and perverts into America!

  19. We stand with our President…we need more and much better border security which includes building the wall. We need a strong Military and better treatment of our veterans.

  20. We need the Wall more than ever. BUILD IT QUICK EVEN IF WE HAVE TO BORROW THE MONEY!!!

  21. Build the wall now!!!!!! Pelosi and Schumer can stick it were the sun doesn’t shine!!!!!! Treasonous people all!!!! Should be tar and feathered in front of the American people!!!!!!!!!!!

  22. BUILD THAT WALL – -BUILD THAT WALL – -build that wall – -build that wall; bury nutty nan and schmucky chucky UNDER IT!

  23. Build thr f………. WALL now before we are over run by illegals ( oh shi. that’s already happening). Build the WALL before the illegal immigrants run the ( shi.. that’s already starting to happen). JUST BUILD THE FU……. WALL.

  24. Hispanics from the South and Muslims from the North. A border wall is required on both our southern and northern borders. The U.S. Coastguard protects our western and eastern borders/coasts. Canada welcomes all from across their boarders because they have such a small population. The United States welfare system is like a big candy store to those in other countries. Our National debt is rising some $ Trillion every year. How long can this go on ?!

  25. The democrats:
    Vote themselves a pay raise and raise our taxes.
    Build a wall around their homes but deny us a wall to protect our children.
    Try to take our guns but not theirs.
    Call us racist when they are racist.
    Write laws for us that they don’t follow.
    Pick and chose which part of the Constitution the want to follow and try to rewrite the rest.
    Take our tax money to fund baby murdering.
    Which proves, one out of every ten liberal communist democrats are just as ignorant as the other nine.

  26. The latest I heard about the “caravans” is that now #4 or 5 has a total of as many as 7,000 who are on their way to us. That probably does not even count the ones they pick up on the way North.
    WE THE PEOPLE should and need to contact the representatives that are against the wall/slats/barrier [whatever you want to call it] then Call their offices in DC, The district or state offices they have lackys working and tell them. Email does not work and Snail Mail does not work. If you call the call is supposed to be recorded and become factual information.
    We discovered during the President’s campaign, that Polls are worthless. Why is the LBM [lame brain media] still quoting polls. I get tickled when a poll shows up that says it has gotten information from 1k, 2k, 3, which is representing what 300 million; truly think.
    Then call the Reps. who are with the President and tell them to hold ground and not back down.

  27. The wall must be built to keep out drug traffickers trained by Iranian revolutionary Guard (al Quds). Iran has always been open about using third world aliens/drug cartels for a Drug War against America.
