Why did Kamala Harris make her fake trip to the border? The only reason Democrats even bother virtue signaling to the center on issues like crime or illegal migration where they not only oppose the centrist position, but they’re the ones who caused the crisis, is poll numbers.
And the numbers from the Texas Tribune poll are troubling.
In the April UT/TT Poll, 16% of voters identified immigration and border security combined as their top concerns and another 16% felt the pandemic was of utmost importance.
So the pandemic and the border crisis are tying in Texas.
Biden’s handling of border security polls weakly even among Texas Democrats with only 56% approving and 18% disapproving.
Among Texas Hispanic, 47% disapprove and only 34% approve.
Considering Biden’s propensity for reducing Hispanics to an identity politics category of people who care about illegal aliens, these are bad numbers that don’t bode well for Democrat ambitions in Texas.
Meanwhile, 71% of white Texans disapprove while only 18% approve.
This is why Biden and the Dems are pretending to take the border crisis seriously as the implosion begins.
