82% of Republicans Agree With Trump That Illegals Are ‘Poisoning the Blood’ of America.

A CBS/YouGov poll has found that a majority of Republicans agree with Donald Trump’s comments that illegal immigrants are “poisoning the blood” of the country. Strikingly, so do nearly half of voters regardless of Party affiliation.

Seventy-two percent of registered Republican voters agreed “with the statement that immigrants entering the U.S. illegally are ‘poisoning the blood’ of the country.” The number of registered Republican voters who agreed with that statement increased by 10 points — to 82 percent — when the quote was attributed directly to Trump, according to CBS.

The survey, which was conducted with a “nationally representative” sample of 2,870 U.S. adult residents interviewed between January 10-12, also found that nearly half of American adults, regardless of Party, agree with Trump’s analysis of the border crisis. Forty-five percent of those surveyed agreed with the “poisoning the blood” statement generally, and 47 percent agreed with the statement when attributed to the former president.  This is especially noteworthy as the survey included far more likely Democrat and Independent voters combined than likely Republican voters, with fewer than 800 of the 2,870 individuals surveyed identifying as likely Republican voters.

Trump first said the border crisis was “poisoning the blood” of the nation, by allowing drugs and disease to pour into the country, during an exclusive interview with The National Pulse’s Raheem Kassam.
