The number of swing-voters who want to shut-down the federal government unless nearly 800,000 illegal aliens shielded from deportation obtain amnesty has plummetted in just one month.
A new Morning Consult/Politico poll reveals how unpopular a plan to shut down the federal government over amnesty for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) illegal aliens is with swing-voters.
Only about 1 in 5 swing-voters, or roughly 20 percent, want a government shut-down in order to force an amnesty for DACA illegal aliens. Likewise, 20 percent of Republican voters said the same.
Just one month ago, 23 percent of swing voters said DACA amnesty was a “top priority” for Congress, as Breitbart News reported, revealing a three percent decline in support by Independents for amnesty.
Since September, support for DACA amnesty among swing-voters has plummetted by a whopping 15 percentage points. At that time, 35 percent of swing-voters supported a quick amnesty for DACA illegal aliens.
In a month, overall support for a DACA amnesty has fallen as well. Last month, 29 percent of Americans believed DACA amnesty was a priority.
Now, only 25 percent — or one in four Americans — of all Americans surveyed said they believe the government should be shut down in order to doll out a pathway to citizenship for illegal aliens.
Despite little support for amnesty for illegal aliens, Democrats, the Republican establishment, the cheap labor industry, big business and the open borders lobby have teamed up to relentlessly push for legalizing up to 3.5 million illegal aliens who are on the DACA rolls or eligible for DACA.
