Poll: Majority Say Build the Wall

A new CBS poll of Americans, released Monday, shows that a majority of Americans support the construction of a border wall between the United States and Mexico.

CBS asked 2063 Americans if they believe that a border wall would be “a good idea.” Of those asked, 32 percent responded that it is “a good idea that can probably be completed,” and 19 percent responded that the border wall “should be tried, even if it can’t be completed.”

The combination of those two constituencies show that a majority of Americans, 51 percent, think that a border wall is critical to U.S. border security.

On the opposite side, 48 percent of respondents told pollsters that building a wall is “a bad idea.”

Additionally, those polled favored deporting migrants crossing into the United States illegally by a 3-to-1 margin. Just 21 percent favor so-called ‘catch-and-release,’ while 63 percent of Americans favor some sort of combination of detention and deportation for illegal border crossers.
