From another great in-depth YouGov poll comes percentages people, by selected demographic characteristics, who favor the US Census asking people whether or not they are American citizens. “Not sure” responses, constituting 14% of the total pool, are excluded. The graph thus shows the percentages who support the question being asked while the residual values indicate opposition to its inclusion:
Some populist, president Trump, caving on an issue that isn’t only wildly popular with his base but is also supported by a large majority of independents, a plurality of non-whites, and even a sizable minority of Democrats–the same Democrats who voted for him in 2016 but may not do so again in 2020.
Though the poll doesn’t break respondents down by both partisan affiliation and race, it’s easy to deduce from these results that white liberals–like, say, Jared and Ivanka–are the biggest opponents of the citizenship question being included.
