Republican Voters Overwhelmingly Agree Donald Trump on Immigration

Immigration has emerged as a top issue in the Republican primaries. Some candidates have a tougher stance on illegal immigration than others. Donald Trump though has taken probably the toughest stance on it.

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%.

Roll Call has more:
In another sign of GOP support for Trump’s strict immigration policies, more poll respondents reacted favorably to a comment by the real-estate mogul.
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.
By contrast, 77 percent of Republicans disagree with this comment: “Yes, illegal immigrants broke the law, but it’s not a felony. It’s an act of love; it’s an act of commitment to your family.” Poll respondents weren’t told that Bush said the comment in April.

Donald Trump continues to be the GOP front-runner in most national polls. Trump also continues to either lead or run second in most state polls.  Source: AAN -
