As reported at Breitbart, in a new Rasmussen poll, 62 percent of likely voters said they support barring new immigrants to the US from receiving welfare benefits for at least five years, which is a policy that Trump mentioned in a recent speech.
Most likely to support the ban are middle-class Americans making $30,000 to $50,000, with 72 percent in favor. Even those who describe themselves as “moderates” support it at a rate of 61 percent.
This poll indicates that Americans don’t want just any immigration, but those that are capable and willing to work without handouts.
Questions about illegal immigration were also asked for the poll, and the results are definitive:
Those who support the policy forcing those seeking welfare to prove they’re a US citizen and here legally stood at 76 percent. While only 17 percent opposed the idea.
Once again, the middle-class was the most supportive of banning illegals from receiving any type of welfare, with 80 percent favoring the plan.
Another revealing poll was recently conducted in Missouri as well.
