Poll: Joe Is Getting Wrecked On Immigration

I think it is time to throw out the Karl Rove playbook.

The “far right” playbook of issues is clearly what is resonating now. I’m growing increasingly convinced that something happened when we entered the post-George Floyd era. Millions of people watched the nationwide brat riots that went on for six months, the redefinition of “racism” as systematic racism that followed and then Trump getting purged from the internet and it flipped a switch. We “accelerated” from the place we were before George Floyd to this new place we are in now.

Joe is president now and he came in and under pressure from progressive activists he foolishly unleashed the border crisis by signing all of those executive orders to “Abolish ICE” and create open borders. Look at the bleeding here in the polls even among Democrats. While COVID is propping Joe up for now, the issue will fade as the weather improves and the vaccine goes out. Now that the police have been defunded by progressive activists in the big cities, we are entering crime season this summer.

  1. No. Disapproval doesn’t mean everyone is becoming against immigration. There’s a ton of Left wingers who are angry at Biden right now that he is not letting them in and keeping them in cages like Trump. And that what he platformed on isn’t what is being done. Their disapproval is coming from a different place, for different reasons.

      • This is why things like “approval” and “disapproval” means very little. What is being approved disapproved exactly, and more importantly, for what reason. Statistics is often muddled propaganda.

        The question is vague and can be answered in a various of different ways for a variety of different reasons (with people coming from a variety of different positions).

        I could, for instance disapprove of Trump’s immigration reduction, because I don’t think he goes far enough and this is enough to make me mark the disapproval checkbox. Or I don’t think it’s truly being done and he’s a liar. But you’d never know that from a vague question and a simple bar graph (meant to reinforce ideological bubbles). I could approve Trump’s immigration, in some tepid sense, because I’m willing to compromise on some level, yet think it doesn’t go far enough as well. This is because the threshold of what is “approved” and “disapproved” is different from person to person.

        I could disapprove Biden from the desire of more migration, because I think Biden is a liar and doing the exact thing that Trump is and is racist (see AOC twitter example and the people who comment there and are in that sphere of politics). Or that I don’t think he goes far enough (in the opposite direction and let more in) and that’s sufficient enough for me to be a “disapproval.” I could approve, in some tepid sense, because I’m willing to compromise on some level, yet think it doesn’t go far enough as well. This is because the threshold of what is “approved” and “disapproved” is different from person to person.

  2. @Aspire I agree. Most Americans favor unrestricted immigration, and most Americans favor no borders. The low polls for Biden are due to him not letting them in fast enough and letting the children, and their extended families get into the US fast enough.
