A “non-media” Harvard-Harris poll of 2,148 registered voters, provided exclusively to The Hill (who refuse to publish the raw data – go figure), finds overwhelming support for President Trump’s immigration proposals.
There are multiple stunning aspects to the survey, including the D+9 poll sample that is entirely disconnected from the 2016 election results and voter registration records.
[…] 2,148 registered voters was conducted between Feb. 11 and 13. The partisan breakdown is 39 percent Democrat, 30 percent Republican, 27 percent independent. –link–
Actual 2017 national voter registration data:
- 28% Republican
- 25% Democrat
- 44% Independent.
