Trump Has Misjudged Public's Attitude Toward Immigrants
The three charts above show results of polls done by the Gallup Poll this year. They clearly show that Donald Trump has made a serious mistake. He thought the American public shared his bigotry and hatred for undocumented immigrants -- and based his campaign on exploiting that imagined hate.
But most Americans don't share Trump racist views. About 72% believe immigration is a good thing for the United States, 66% oppose building a wall between the U.S. and Mexico, and 84% think undocumented immigrants should be given a chance to become U.S. citizens.
