A CNN/ORC poll carried out between September 1-4 showed that about 60% of those surveyed opposed Donald Trump's proposal to construct a massive barrier between the U.S. and Mexico as a means of halting illegal immigration.
Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s proposal to build a wall between the U.S. and Mexico as a means of halting illegal immigration is overwhelmingly opposed by most Americans according to a recent poll.
A CNN/ORC sampling carried out between September 1-4 shows that nearly 60 percent of those surveyed do not support constructing a massive barrier between the two nations. Nearly 70 percent also said that they fundamentally reject the premise of repatriating undocumented immigrants to their countries of origin. And opposition to repatriation was also expressed by more than half of the pro-Trump respondents.
The poll illustrated a largely insignificant distinction over which candidate is best equipped to address ongoing controversies surrounding illegal immigration. 49% erred in favor of Democrat Hillary Clinton and 47 percent weighed in favor of Trump.
The survey included 1,001 participants, 886 of whom are registered voters. Of the participants 786 said they are more than likely to show up at the polls on Election Day. The poll’s margin of error is plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.
