Immigration is more than a touchy subject, and discussing it is often clouded by sentiment and disinformation. But a new poll makes clear that Americans have had enough of the unlimited swarm of immigration, at least in terms of its impact on American jobs.
The poll, conducted by Gravis Marketing, shows overwhelming opposition to increased immigration – a sticking point that impacts Americans across the board, regardless of all the race baiting the system tries to foster to keep people divided.
The bottom line is that mass immigration affects ALL Americans. Black. White. Hispanic. Democrat. Republican, and everyone else.
And it is a potent issue that Donald Trump could take up and ride all the way to the White House – particularly if voters see the issue in the stark terms that the poll lays out.
– By a nearly 6 to 1 margin, U.S. voters believe immigration should be decreased rather than increased.
Every three years, the U.S. admits a population of new immigrants the size of Los Angeles. Sixty three percent of voters said that this figure is too high, whereas only a minuscule 11 percent of voters said that number is not high enough. Only 13 percent of Democrats and Independents— and only 7 percent of Republicans— said immigration should be increased.
Seventy five percent of voters believe American workers should get U.S. jobs, whereas only 3 percent of voters believe foreign workers should be imported to fill U.S. jobs.
– Roughly three out of four voters— including nearly three out of four Democrat voters— believe that “instead of giving jobs and healthcare to millions of refugees from around the world, we should rebuild our inner cities and put Americans back to work.”
The number of immigrants in the U.S. is currently at a record high of 42.4 million…
In the 1920s, the last time the foreign-born share of the population reached a record high, then-President Calvin Coolidge hit the pause button for roughly fifty years, producing an era of explosive wage growth and allowing immigrants already in the country to assimilate.
As the polling data suggests, a majority of U.S. voters would be supportive of similar measures to reduce immigration and improve jobs, wages and benefits for the domestic population.
Hillary Clinton has long campaigned on a big tent, pro-immigration stance, but will be very vulnerable if Americans are reminded that she and her husband ushered in NAFTA and have contributed significantly to the destruction of the country, and the living standards of Americans, regardless of race. Though Hillary pretends to oppose the TPP now, she has spend years promoting it, and will side with the corporatocracy when push comes to shove
Minorities, who are so frequently given lip service by the Dems, are hit hardest by the competition for jobs against waves of immigration. Lower wages have resulted from the clash, and the working classes have been forced into subservience with government assistance instead of being able to support themselves and join the middle class.
The hard realities of immigration as a devourer of jobs and wages fueled the Brexit vote and the nationalists sentiments in Europe, and may raise Trump into the Oval Office here at home.
As Breitbart notes, it could destroy Hillary’s campaign if the immigration issue becomes a central focus of the 2016 election and is framed in terms of its importance to employment:
New polling data shows that it would be virtually impossible for Hillary Clinton to win the general election if the Republican nominee were able to frame the immigration issue in populist terms that emphasize reducing the overall amount of immigration into the country and protecting jobs, incomes, and benefits for the domestic population.
“The poll shows that instead of dividing Americans, immigration is an issue where Americans have reached the consensus that it is a problem, maybe the problem,” said Doug Kaplan, the managing partner of Gravis Marketing.
The polling data suggests that the Republican Party could see overwhelming electoral success if it were able to portray Clinton’s immigration policy as a corporatist attempt to flood the labor supply with foreign workers in order to drive down wages and incomes for American workers.
Of course the Washington establishment has been offering little else as a choice. Both parties have sold out the American people, and Hillary Clinton represents a clear intensification of that trend – both in rhetoric and in deeds.
Trump is playing not just the outsider, but the savior of the American way.
