Dems approval ratings everywhere are falling!

Support among Americans is "declining" for providing a pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants — even among Democrats — according to a new poll.

The Politico/Morning Consult poll, released Wednesday, shows that 43% of voters overall think illegal immigrants now in the United States should be able to become legal citizens, a 14 percentage point decline since January.

The idea of giving illegal immigrants a way to become citizens has been popular for several years, but the new poll numbers show Democrats could be losing the battle of public opinion in the wake of GOP messaging.

The poll comes as the numbers of immigrants arriving at the nation's border continue to climb, prompting critics of Biden's policies to term the surge as a "crisis," a word the president's administration has refused to use.

On Tuesday, Mexican Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard and senior U.S. officials met in Mexico City to discuss how to resolve the border situation. Top Latin America officials Roberta Jacobson and Juan Gonzalez made the trip.

Meanwhile, the flood of migrants, particularly unaccompanied children, continues to grow and lawmakers on both sides of the aisle are calling on Biden to take action to avoid an impending humanitarian emergency.

Republicans have also attacked Biden for reversing Trump's immigration policies, and the current administration has attempted to inform migrants that they should not come to the border at this time.

"I have an important message for those migrants who wish to enter the United States in an irregular fashion," Jacobson said in a statement posted on the website of the U.S. Embassy in Mexico Tuesday night. "Do not come to the border. The border is closed."

Wink wink.

Joe Biden's approval rating is falling faster than his pants at a Girl Scout Jamboree!

President Joe Biden’s job approval ratings are cratering as the border crisis escalates and concerns mount over his apparently deteriorating mental and physical fitness.

Monday’s daily Presidential Tracking Poll by Rasmussen Reports found that 49 percent of likely voters disapprove of the job Biden is doing, while 49 percent approve.

Daily tracking polls are compiled using nightly phone surveys of 500 likely voters.

Five hours ago:

A majority of Americans disapprove of President Biden’s handling of immigration issues and believe that, overall, the situation along the U.S.-Mexico border has gotten worse since he took office, according to a new Yahoo News/YouGov poll.

The poll, which surveyed 1,556 U.S. adults between March 23 and 25, found that 62 percent of respondents believe there is a “crisis” at the Mexican border, a word Biden administration officials have bent over backward to avoid in recent days, as the growing number of migrant children in federal custody at the border has become the subject of national media attention and intense political scrutiny.

Needy? Starving? Huh?

Joe's approval rating is falling faster than his pants at a Girl Scout Jamboree.

Only 44% of Americans approve of the job President Biden is doing on border security, with 55% saying they disapprove, according to an Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research poll released Monday. And on the related issue of immigration, Biden stands at 42% approval and 56% disapproval.

And only a quarter approve of how the president’s handling the crisis involving unaccompanied children apprehended at the U.S.-Mexico border.
