In the face of Democratic leaders claiming the restoration of the citizenship question on the national census is an ”attack on immigrants,” – especially on Latinos – a decisive majority of Hispanic voters approve of putting it back on the United States Census.
In order to secure more votes in the upcoming 2020 election, Democrats are reportedly continuing to do all they can to pander for minority support, but it appears they will need appeal to illegal aliens for their backing, as registered Latino voters are not on board with the blue party’s radical pro-immigration agenda that includes keeping the citizenship question off the 2020 census.
All aboard w/Trump, Dems jumping ship?
The latest Harvard/Harris nationwide poll revealed not only that most Hispanic voters are on board with the citizenship question returning to the census, but that more than two-thirds (67 percent) of all voters approve adding it to the 2020 census.
Shocking to some, a majority of voting Democrats (52 percent) are on board with returning the citizenship question to the census, while a greater 88 percent of Republicans and 63 percent of independents stand with President Donald Trump – and against the pro-immigration Democratic Party – regarding the controversial issue.
Also coming as a surprise, nearly six out of 10 (59 percent) of black voters are for returning the citizenship question next year, with 58 percent of urban voters also agreeing. Even more of a shocker, nearly half (47 percent) of citizens who voted for former Democratic presidential nominee Hilary Clinton in 2016 gave Trump’s initiative to reinsert the citizenship question on the census a thumbs-up.
Despite the Trump administration having most American voters’ backing on the issue, the nation’s highest court put a hold on putting the citizenship question back on next year’s census, but Trump shows no signs of relenting.
“Last month, the U.S. Supreme Court temporarily blocked the Trump administration from restoring the question to the census, [b]ut Trump has vowed to continue pressing for its inclusion, indicating he would use his executive order power – if necessary,” WND recounted. “Trump last week called reports that his administration has given up its effort to include a citizenship question on the 2020 census ‘fake.’”
The president took to Twitter to make sure the public was fully aware of his resolve to add the question to the survey administered every decade.
“We are absolutely moving forward – as we must – because of the importance of the answer to this question,” Trump tweeted.
Trump’s purpose behind the move is to ensure that a fair and legal vote takes place at elections – so they are not skewed by Democrats adding illegal aliens’ ballots to their vote counts to turn the election.
“The administration cites enforcement of the Voting Rights Act as the reason for adding the citizenship question,” WND informed. “Its lawyers argue it’s needed to have an accurate count of citizen voting-age populations in every congressional district.Immigrant advocacy organizations contend it might deter noncitizens from answering the census, creating an ‘undercount.’”
White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway put Democratic leaders who oppose returning the citizenship question to the census on the spot.
“I would ask the Democrats – I hear they’re screaming rhetoric – I would ask, ‘What are you afraid of?’” Conway shared Tuesday, according to the Washington Times. “Why wouldn’t you want to know who’s living in this country, and who’s a citizen and who’s not a citizen?”
With the barrage of personal household questions included on the census, she saw no logical reason why reinserting the citizenship question should be anything but a no-brainer.
“We’re asking people how many toilets in your house, and you don’t want to know who’s using them? It’s absolutely ridiculous – and this is why the president is fighting for the question’s inclusion,” Conway told Fox News. “The census is important, and as President Trump has mentioned, we spend about $20 billion on it. We have said it’s an important exercise. So why not get it right? The census in the past has been increasingly responsive to changes in American demography.”
More on board with Trump
Going into an election year, the Trump administration has more to be confident about after seeing improving approval ratings on the recent Harvard/Harris poll.
When nearly 2,200 voters were asked, “Do you approve or disapprove of the job President Trump is doing on stimulating jobs?” 56 percent gave their seal of approval, including 63 percent of whites, 47 percent of Hispanics and 33 percent of blacks – marking an uptick in support for the president.
High approval was also given on Trump’s job on the economy, as 55 percent of all voters gave him a thumbs-up (62 percent of whites, 45 percent of Latinos and 31 percent of blacks.
Rising confidence in the president was also registered regarding immigration, with 46 percent of voters overall approving of his job – broken down to 53 percent of whites, 37 percent of Hispanics and 22 percent of blacks.
Regarding their overall assessment of how Trump is doing as president, 44 percent of all voters approve, including a majority of whites (51 percent), 39 percent of Hispanics and 20 percent of blacks.
