A Fox News poll yesterday made it very clear that, despite Donald Trump’s demagoguery — or, perhaps more accurately because of it — today’s Republican Party is very much the Party of Trump:
36. Recently, presidential candidate Donald Trump called for a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border. He said Mexico is quote, “sending people that have lots of problems…They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.” Setting aside how Trump worded his comments, do you think he’s basically right on this, or not?
Here’s what Republican respondents had to say:
Yes, he is: 70%
No, he isn’t: 27%
(Don’t know): 3%
70% of Republicans think Donald Trump is “basically right” on immigration.
All to say, paraphrasing Miley Cyrus: It’s the Donald’s Party, he can do what he wants.
