Throughout the presidential election voters who supported Donald Trump were highly critical of the polls being released, claiming they were biased in favor of his opponent Hillary Clinton, which as it turns out they had good reason for this belief.
After Trump’s landslide win on election day, pollsters were immediately criticized for “getting it so wrong”, as many predicted Clinton had an 80%+ chance of winning. Only a few notable polls showed Trump in the lead, such as the LA Times poll, and most experts brushed them off as outliers.
Wondering why this poll wasn’t released in September immediately after it was completed? Although no official reason was given, I suspect because it’s results didn’t fit the narrative that the media wanted to portray.
This Ipsos poll shows much higher support for Trump’s immigration policies than previously reported, and also greater than the media would ever let on, with upwards of 62% in favor of detaining or immediately deporting all people who enter the United States illegally.
Not only were Americans in favor of detaining or deporting illegal immigrants, but they were also strongly in favor of fining any company who hires them, as over 67% agreed with.
75% were in favor of deporting illegal immigrants who have committed a crime and 59% were for suspending visas from countries with terrorist problems, also a main policy in Trump’s immigration plans. Oddly enough, only 42% were in favor of building the wall in this survey, which is odd since so many were in favor of strong immigration practices, but without securing our border we would just continue to have these issues.
This survey was only released after the election, I imagine because it showed too strong of support for Trump’s policies, and it goes to show the lengths that the media/polling companies went through to prop up their false narrative of a failing campaign.
