A new poll shows that very few voters support the left’s goal of adding illegal aliens to the number that determines congressional representation.
The new Rasmussen/Just the News Daily Poll found that only 23 percent felt that illegals should be included in the population numbers that determines representation in Congress.
“The poll results come as California, Florida and Texas would each lose a House seat if President Trump succeeds in getting illegal immigrants removed from the 2020 U.S. census, according to a new Pew Research Center analysis,” the site said.
Rasmussen noted that the poll found opposition to including illegal immigrants comes from 72% of White voters, 67% of Black voters, and 57% of Hispanic voters. Opposition also comes from 88% of conservatives, 68% of moderates, and 51% of liberals.
A solid plurality (41%) of all voters believe all legal residents should be included (both citizens and others).
The respondents were asked: “Representation in Congress is based upon population–the larger the state is the more representatives it has. When it comes to determining representation in Congress, who should be included in the population counts?”
- 29% Only US citizens
- 41% US citizens and others who are legal residents
- 23% Everybody who lives in a state, including illegal immigrants
- 7% Not Sure
Liberals have been working to flood our political system with illegals for decades in the belief that illegals beholden to Democrats for free stuff will naturally bolster the Democrat Party.
Thus far, the evidence shows Democrats are right, illegals push the hardcore, leftist agenda. And if they are added to congressional representation, we will get far more extreme leftism in our country,
President Trump recently signed an executive order to prevent adding illegals to congressional representation.
The survey was taken of 1,200 registered voters between July 23-25, 2020. Margin of sampling error: +/- 2.8% for full sample.
