It is not surprising that Donald Trump's practice of tearing thousands of immigrant children out of the arms of their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border has garnered vocal criticism and very little support from the American public.
As reports show that over 2,300 immigrant children were separated from their parents between mid-April and the end of May polling finds that two thirds of Americans are opposed to Trump's new “zero-tolerance” policy.
What is surprising, despite the growing condemnation and outrage, is the polling that shows Trump's base is loving his new policy.
Voters who cast their ballot for Donald Trump in the 2016 Presidential election approve of family separations by a 66 percent to 23 percent margin, according to a YouGov/Economist poll conducted earlier this month.
Here the comparison between people who voted for Trump in 2016 as opposed to those who voted for Hillary Clinton...
That shows a country that is at absolute odds with itself.
Perhaps the number should not be so surprising as the same poll shows a whopping 95 percent of Trump voters approve of Trump’s job performance overall thus far.
This only reaffirms the belief that the cool aid is plentiful and the cult is not going anywhere.
