A recent survey of Republican and conservative voters, conducted by New American Economy and TargetPoint Consulting, shows overwhelming support for a congressional deal that increases border security in exchange for granting Dreamers a path to citizenship. The survey highlights key voting blocs, including young voters age 18–34, college-educated female voters, working-class male voters and faith voters.
As the midterms approach, Democrats and Republicans alike are pulling out all stops to ensure a victory in the polls for their respective parties. And while these two separate issues — the border wall and legislation for Dreamers’ citizenship — may not seem to coexist with the other in the eyes of some voters, it’s telling for the future elections. Indeed, it is likely that “a DACA deal … would not hurt Republicans in their 2018 primaries.”
