The media and the Democrats insist that Donald Trump’s policies on immigration and refugees are popular with only a tiny minority of “deplorable” Americans. However, they’ll have a harder time making this point after today’s news.
Highly respected veteran pollster and Democratic political strategist Pat Caddell says that this liberal talking point simply doesn’t reflect the facts on the ground:

Even many Democrats are unenthusiastic about voting for Hillary Clinton, and her free-for-all stance on immigration is one reason why.
