Alabama Congressman, Border Wall, Lack Of Public Support

Trump Wall

Alabama congressman, Mo Brooks sets a flame to the "border wall" issue as he campaigns for Jeff Session's vacated Senate seat.

I doubt there are 150 members of the total US Congress (House and Senate) who actually are serious about increasing the US deficit via funding a flipping border wall.  

Pew Research in February of this year posted a piece with the following graphic, as we consider Trump's campaign mantra (utter lies) about a southern border wall.

While the nation seems to have no interest in a border wall, it should be noted the same Pew piece shows dominate support for the wall among Republicans. 

Well, there isn't a surprise in that data; not at the very least. Take a close look at the right side of the graphic display bars and you will see exactly why Brooks deploys the "border wall" elections strategy. Alabama runs a close thread to the GOP's most reliable regressive states. South Carolina and Mississippi are the GOP's top tier dungeons of draconian.

During the same period, Quinnipiac ran a comprehensive survey with itemized poll results. Item 38, shows public perception of the wall in the same realm as Pew Research.

38. Do you support or oppose building a wall along the border with Mexico?

It is unfortunate the border wall issues seems to be an issue for conservative white Americans who tend to be older, and who actually vote. They vote GOP regardless of GOP policy as they share the paradigm and obvious social views. 

Brook's like Trump knows the exact nature of the issues and its potential appeal to Alabama voters.
