According to a new poll from the firm YouGov, it appears to be paying off. Trump’s position is the clear favorite of Republicans with 49% support. “Not sure” is in distant second place at 13% with the pro-amnesty Marco Rubio in third place with 10%.

Sixty-five percent of Republicans and the independents who lean that way agreed with this statement: “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re sending people that have lots of problems. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists.” Trump said that in June, but poll respondents weren’t told who said it.
