According to recent polls, a majority of Americans are against the wall and favor Congressional democrats vs Trump on the issue of illegal immigration. Should congress work with Trump to give him his wall?

What needs to happen the liberals need to say yes we will build your wall, but we can't begin work on it for 8 years. Then the next election will happen and of the next president wills it they can cancel out the building the wall. The government doesn't get shut down again everyone gets paid everyone is happy for a moment. But this is the logical way of doing this. Stupid politics.

Actually the most recent poll shows that about 50% of Americans support the wall.

“Among all likely voters, 51% favor building a wall on the border; 37% disagree, and 12% are not sure. Eighty percent (80%) support the deportation of all illegal immigrants convicted of a felony; only 11% are opposed.”

Your hill article is over a year old and your rassmussen poll is from 2015....

Here's an actually recent report from yesterday

Even that new Hill article says that it’s around 50-50 support for the wall, not that the majority are against it.

I heard a poll reported on the news this morning that said 56% (I think) were for the wall. Only about 30% of Democrats and over 70% of Republicans were for the wall.

1) 66% are opposed to trump using emergency powers to build wall
2) 52% of Americans are opposed to building a wall along the southern border.


Both of those numbers are a majority.

52% means roughly 50-50 with the margin of error. Add to that how inaccurate and biased the polls have been and that could easily swing the other way.

Here's a new poll that shows only 40% support the wall but lemme guess... Polls don't matter? Only when they're positive for trump right?

Lol, going to keep digging til you find a poll that matches your bias? Which poll is more accurate?

If you read the poll or most polls... It's not "50-50"
Do Trump's approval polls always match up? No.. there are more than 2 answers. So my first poll said on 45% and this newer poll says 41% do you really want to try and deflect away from what a majority means to polls are so wildly different... I mean we can argue the difference of 4 percentage points if you want...

So about 50%, give or take.

What is the margin of error on "pretty accurate".....

Beginning of election coverage Nov. 08th, 2016......Clinton 98.2% win.....

End of Presidential Election coverage.....Trump!.....

You tell yourself whatever you need to get you through the night....."Two-Tongues" Clinton is not and will not be anyone president in this reality, or any other!.....

I get that Trump is such a disliked president that his supporters have to do everything they can to negate his piss poor ratings but when will yall get over the election?

They predicted she would win “in a landslide”. Presidential candidates don’t win by total votes. You’d think by now liberals would know this simple fact about our election process, but no. Our educational system needs overhauled.

You would think conservatives could get over an election they won... Yes I KNOW they are elected by electoral college. Polls measure popular support. YOU are the ones saying they were wrong because they measured popular support and we're wildly off... Like you're trying to deflect your own stupidity now...

Polls measure support, the journalists then took that info and deduced she would win in a landslide. How? By assuming she would win enough electoral votes to do so. How many states did polls say she would win and didn’t?
