Politico: Poll: Majority still opposes Trump emergency declaration

On the eve of Congress’ unprecedented rebuke of President Donald Trump, a majority of voters continue to oppose his declaration of a national emergency at the southern border, according to a POLITICO/Morning Consult poll.

 

The poll shows that Trump has failed to build support for his declaration in the face of congressional opposition; the results are essentially unchanged since he signed an order to reallocate military funds toward construction of a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. Only 38 percent of voters support the declaration, the poll shows, down 1 percentage point from three weeks ago.

 

In the new poll, 52 percent of voters are opposed to the declaration, up 1 percentage point from last month.
