Ever since Donald Trump first announced his candidacy for president, the mainstream media applied maximum effort to attacking the man, his supporters, and the truth of just how many people in this country agree with many of his policies, including immigration.
Well, the polling firm Ipsos just got exposed for hiding results from a poll that showed five out of 6 voters SUPPORTED Trump’s immigration and labor policies.
This survey was conducted back in September, but the results weren’t released until November 16 — after the election.
Stuff like this is why the left lost this election so badly.
Breitbart reports, Trump’s labor and immigration policies are “strongly” backed by an average 32 percent of the respondents, and are “somewhat” supported by another 25 percent. That is an average support of almost 60 percent, versus strong opposition of just 15 percent. Roughly 10 percent did not answer the questions.
Ipsos is a highly rated polling firm, but conducted the poll in September and hid the pro-Trump answers until Nov. 16, a week after the election.
The poll shows the “strong support” and “somewhat support” numbers for various policies. That is important because those details help explain Americans’ contradictory desire to help their kids and also help foreign migrants. The “strong” and “somewhat” numbers also show how many Americans might take action if a controversial policy is implemented or cancelled.
Trump’s promise to start “immediately deporting” illegals who have committed crimes gets 75 percent strong and somewhat support, and only 7 percent strong opposition. That’s 10-to-one support.
Sixty-two percent support and 13 percent strongly oppose, “detaining or immediately deporting all people who enter the U.S. illegally.”
Sixty-seven percent of respondents support, and only 9 percent strongly oppose, the implementation of current laws that levy fines on employers who hired illegals instead of Americans. Those laws were largely ignored by President Barack Obama and President George W. Bush.
The poll shows that Trump’s revised plans to minimize the danger of immigrant Islamic terrorism is backed by 59 percent, and strongly opposed by 12 percent. That result echoes the public’s strong opposition to Islamic doctrines.
The most significant result in the poll, however, is the strong support for reductions in legal immigration, which amounted in 2015 to roughly one new immigrant for every two Americans entering the workforce, or one immigrant for every two American births. The poll showed that only 12 percent strongly opposed plans to “change the legal immigration system to limit legal immigration.” Four times as many, or 57 percent, back reductions in legal immigration, while 13 percent did not take a position.
In other words, unlike what the liberal media spoon fed the masses, lots of folks are on board with Trump and his immigration plan, clearly indicating this issue is important to Americans from all walks of life.
It seems unreasonable to assume that such a large number of individuals would all be “racist” as the left claims, so this information also decimates the media’s divisive narrative.
Major left-leaning news networks have proven time and again during this election cycle that they cannot be trusted, and the fact that many folks are now getting news from alternative sources (such as this one) speaks volumes about the mistrust these outlets have sparked.
One would think they’d have learned their lesson by now, but they just keep repeating their mistakes.
