The President's Base is in Rural America Where His Anti-Immigration Policies are Popular

New polling data confirms previous research that President Trump's base of support is in rural America. This isn't surprising in that, as we have noted before, his base is within the white Evangelical Christian community which thrives in rural regions of the country. But the polling data collected by Survey Monkey for Axios also shows a close correlation between their approval of the President and their support for his anti-immigration policies.

Axios: "There's an almost perfect match between President Trump's approval ratings on immigration — including his overall policies and his proposed border wall — and his job approval rating, according to the latest Axios/SurveyMonkey poll of five voter groups' views in the midterm elections."

"Between the lines: The fact that his job approval rating (44%) is so closely aligned with his immigration numbers suggests that Trump's immigration policies play a huge role in how the public sees his presidency. If they're with him on immigration, they're with him on everything. And his wall of defense is rural voters — the only one of the five key voter groups that's sticking with him."

The President has always understood that immigration is his signature issue so expect him to use it to motivate his base this Fall.
