A new poll found that many Americans feel discontent with how President Joe Biden handles border security.
Conducted by Fox News, the poll found that the number of voters who believe border security has become worse compared to two years ago is now thrice the number of people who say it has improved.
Of the respondents, 46% said the border has become less secure compared to 2019. Meanwhile, 15% believed border security has improved while 33% thought it remained the same.
Fox News also made mention of its 2018 poll, which they conducted about 18 months following then-President Donald Trump’s inauguration. It found that 28% thought the border improved, which is higher than the 17% who thought it was worse.
The new survey also found that 51% of the respondents did not approve of Biden’s performance with regards to border security. In contrast, 35% approved it.
Fox News conducted the survey via telephone calls from April 18 to 21. It had a 3-percentage-point margin of error.
The poll also found that 86% of Republicans felt highly concerned about the issue of illegal immigration. With regards to the treatment of illegal aliens, 53% of them view it as a concern. Meanwhile, 67% overall felt concerned about it.
Also, 77% of Democrats felt concerned about the treatment of illegal immigrants. Fifty-one percent of them also felt concerned regarding illegal immigration.
Meanwhile, when it comes to the president’s performance, 88% of Republican respondents did not approve of it, while 7% of them did. In contrast, 64% of Democrats approve of it while 18% didn’t.
When it comes to border security, 75% of Republican respondents say it has become worse than in 2019. Only 17% of the Democrat respondents believe the same thing.
Regarding who caused the spike in illegal immigration, overall 56% thought it was “mostly” because of Biden as president. Among Republicans, 84% believed this, while 32% of Democrats thought this as well.
Conversely, 23% of Democrat respondents said Biden doesn’t deserve the blame for the border crisis. Only 4% of Republican respondents, however, felt this way.
The Fox News survey is not the only one that reflected discontent with the president.
