Wrong AGAIN, Dems– Polling shows MOST people WANT citizenship question on Census

Maybe the real career progressive Democrats are pursuing isn’t politics but “epic wrongness.” It sure seems that way sometimes.

Once again, the foot-stomping, feelings-hurted Democrats are outraged over something most Americans want, and happy about preventing something most Americans didn’t want prevented. This time, it’s the Trump administration’s reasonable plan to ask in the census — you know, that big important thing that tells us who is here, how many, and what the demographics are? — to have a question asking whether the respondent is a citizen or not.

Some other places that ask if you are a citizen are passport offices, employment forms, DMVs, health insurance paperwork, life insurance paperwork, and legal proceedings. BUT NOT THE CENSUS BY GUM, say Democrats over their stupid line in the sand.

But the latest YouGov shows just how dumb that sand line is. In numbers. And those are numbers are 53% vs. 32%.



You see, here in America, 53% is called a “majority.” I can have Beto repeat that in Swedish or something if you’re not clear. It means “most” or “the big slice,” or “the lion’s share” or … well y’all get the picture.

Check it out:

The latest Economist/YouGov poll found that 53% feel it should ask the question versus 32% who don’t.

The survey asked: “Do you think the federal government should or should not ask people whether they are American citizens as part of the 2020 census?”

  • Should ask 53%
  • Should not ask 32%
  • Not sure 14%
  • And if that still ain’t clear, here it is as a graphic.

    And here it is as a graphic pie chart.

    And I feel like some Democrats still may not be getting it. So just to make it super perfectly easy to understand, check it out:

    You know how you think asking about citizenship is evil and cruel and most people agree with you? Well we asked them and they said:

    1. Q: Aren’t the numbers of Congressional representatives and what not chosen based off the census? Why have more useless taxpayer leeches only because non- citizens?

    2. Which makes the half arsed way the Trump administration defended it in Court all the more disappointing.

    3. At the end of the day, all the liberals’ arguments for not including the question are LAME. They remind me of their other stupid argument for not requiring a photo ID to vote, which is that it will “disenfranchise” the minority vote. If a non-citizen is too intimidated by the question to not fill out the form, there is other data by which the number of non-citizens can be estimated. There are also plenty of other people who won’t complete the form for other reasons, so the argument really doesn’t hold water. It’s always better to have the necessary information than not have it, which would be the case if the citizenship question were to be excluded altogether.

      1. @msliberty I’m guessing they either didn’t understand the question or were too embarrassed to tell the pollster their true opinion (“the Bradley Effect”).

    4. US K-12 schools are abysmal and getting worse – and the Supreme Court in 1982 mandated we have to give it away for free to all illegals and anchor babies.

      For that reason alone, we absolutely need to know how many students in our declining schools are illegals and how many are taxpaying legals residents.

      Stand up to the teachers unions who want open borders to fill their failing classrooms and tell them we are counting who gets free K-12 that are here legally legal and who is getting free K-12 who should not even be in our classrooms. Watch them howl.

      We will never sort out the mess K-12 has become until we know who we are being asked to serve. Yes, put in the citizenship question and demand to know legal status of all K-12 students. Long overdue.

      1. The K-12 mess will never be fixed until the Dept of Ed in WADC is eliminated, which Trump promised to do, AND until tenure is abolished and radical nitwit teachers lose their damned jobs for NOT doing their jobs to educate, instead of indoctrinating future useful idiots. Also, English is the American language and there should be no schools en espanol!

        1. Illegal kids should not be educated in taxpayer supported schools. You want your kids educated?? Come legally. Yet another freebie carrot. And they are being fed at school too.
          Come legally or stay home!!

    5. I’m amazed it’s not 83%. 53% is barely a majority, AND I have no idea how you answer “Other” to a simple yes or no question.

      1. I always considered “Other” to be the answer you give when you are too afraid to show it. I lump the 14% Other in with the 53% so the total is 67% in favor of the question.

      2. 53% is barely a majority if the negative was 47%. But it wasn’t. It was 53 vs. 32% which in politics is a crushing win. Especially considering YouGov leans liberal on its polling. That 53% is actually much higher.

    6. Has it not gotten through to everyone yet? DEMOCRATS DO NOT CARE WHAT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WANT! ❓

    11. How can we deal with “immigration border security if we don’t know the numbers we already have, and a lot more about those who have come here illegally.

      Their “sensibilities” do not take priority over legal residents who are footing their bills, including mandated free K-12. What is the state of our public schools if we don’t know how many are illegals, ruining it for our own kids.

    12. It’s been on Canada’s since 1901…no complaints yet you should hear them mock Trump over ours…

      1. @msliberty I’m guessing they either didn’t understand the question or were too embarrassed to tell the pollster their true opinion (“the Bradley Effect”).

    13. Which makes the half arsed way the Trump administration defended it in Court all the more disappointing.

    14. Q: Aren’t the numbers of Congressional representatives and what not chosen based off the census? Why have more useless taxpayer leeches only because non- citizens?

    15. What confuses me is the talk about how this question will affect the congressional districts and how money will be allocated.

      Well, isn’t that the POINT? We don’t WANT illegals to “count” and claim the same benefits as citizens. And if Sanctuary Cities and States insist on protecting aliens, they can do it on their own dime. Why should they get rewarded for it?

      Did I say this confuses me? No, I think I understand just fine.

      1. I believe that the money is mostly allocated to Dems districts and who knows what they do with the money. Building the wall and reforming the immigration law will directly “affect” not only the illegal constituency (illegal votes) but also the funding of the communist Dems Party.

    16. I don’t think the issue of whether citizenship should be on the census was ever really in doubt. Only the Democrat politicians are ardent about that (for obvious reasons).

      The whole issue with this “issue” is that Donald is a f*ckup who f*cked it up.

      The right can’t accept that, mostly because they’ve got his boot polish all over their tongues; and the left just sees the issue as “Donald wants it, so I’m against it.” (That, and “racism, racism everywhere!”).

      But if you take idiot moron stupid progressive jackass f*ckup Donald out of the equation – most people don’t have an issue with citizenship on the census.

      1. Your favorite candidate never made it to 1600 PA, Avenue. Isn’t that right? So I guess that makes him/her the real winner, right? How are they doing running the country, as well as you expected?

        Troll on Dude, you’re nothing if not insipidly consistent.

        1. What are you yammering about? All I said was that most people agree on the citizenship question on the sentence. And we’d have it, if we didn’t have a moron for a President.

          But hey, I guess that’s better than the alternative, right? How’d that work out for our citizenship question? We could either get the alternative, who wouldn’t have wanted it at all; or the moron who was too stupid to get it even though we all wanted it.

          MORON 2020 Y’ALL. FOUR MORE YEARS OF NOT GETTING WHAT WE WANT BUT AT LEAST IT AIN’T THE ALTERNATIVE WOO I AM EXCITED TO POINTLESSLY VOTE!

    17. That’s a pretty wide margin between the yes and no. Tells me the Dems are going to lose next year BIGLY!

    18. How can we deal with “immigration border security if we don’t know the numbers we already have, and a lot more about those who have come here illegally.

      Their “sensibilities” do not take priority over legal residents who are footing their bills, including mandated free K-12. What is the state of our public schools if we don’t know how many are illegals, ruining it for our own kids.

    19. I don’t think the Democrats will care about this poll. They’re after an ends -one of full legislative control. What the majority of Americans want means nothing.

    20. What I find fascinating was in the debates almost every one of their candidates were groveling to illegals. It’s like they know they vote illegally. They barely mention the citizens of this country. It was all illegals, all the time. They are even down on the border campaigning. Some go even further and campaign in Mexico. Beto, the fake Hispanic did. Whack jobs, these people.

    21. When will Trump finally tell Roberts and the Courts to pound sand. Trump has been way too patient. The only thing I can figure is he is waiting until after his landslide reelection.

    22. It’s been on Canada’s since 1901…no complaints yet you should hear them mock Trump over ours…

    23. Let me guess. That section of the pie chart that answered OTHER, asked “What’s a Census“?

      1. About half of those respondents, no doubt, were NeverTrumpers that couldn’t bring themselves to agree with Trump. See member AT as an example.

    24. I was confused until you pointed out that the red (no) portion is smaller than the green (yes) portion.

    25. Only a left-wing lunatic would not want that simple question asked in the US Census… why? Let’s say there are 4.5 million US Citizens in LA County and 5 million votes are counted from that county. Hmm… same thing in other counties in Texas, Illinois, Florida, and NY.

    26. So when did the will of the people and the constitution mean anything to democrats?

    27. What confuses me is the talk about how this question will affect the congressional districts and how money will be allocated.

      Well, isn’t that the POINT? We don’t WANT illegals to “count” and claim the same benefits as citizens. And if Sanctuary Cities and States insist on protecting aliens, they can do it on their own dime. Why should they get rewarded for it?
