A majority of Americans who voted in the 2022 midterm elections favor policies to end illegal immigration and bring legal immigration under control.
That's according to the latest Rasmussen Reports and NumbersUSA survey.
Results indicated that 58% of U.S. midterm voters believe the government is doing too little to reduce illegal border crossings and visitor overstays.
Only 13% say the government is doing too much immigration enforcement, while 20% rate the current level of action as about right.
A majority (51%) of midterm voters say President Joe Biden’s administration is doing a poor job of handling the issue of illegal immigration, while less than a third give the administration a rating of good (20%) or excellent (12%) on the issue.
The Rasmussen Reports/NumbersUSA survey also polled separate samples of 2022 midterm voters in three key “battleground” states – Florida, Arizona and Nevada – that found voters there shared similar views.
- Sixty-four percent (64%) of Florida midterm voters say the government is doing too little to prevent illegal immigration and 52% rate the Biden administration poor on handling illegal immigration
- The Biden administration gets a poor rating on immigration from 50% of Arizona midterm voters, 58% of whom think the government is doing too little immigration enforcement
- In Nevada, 66% believe the government is doing too little immigration enforcement and 53% give the Biden administration a poor rating for its handling of the issue.
