President Joe Biden’s embarrassing approval ratings are historically low and threaten to take Chuck Schumer’s majority in the U.S. Senate away this coming November.
Voters have lost faith in the President and his party across the board.
But when Schumer read the latest Gallup results, the panic truly set in.
Gallup recently ran a poll asking voters if they’re satisfied with the United States’ immigration levels.
Nearly six of ten (58%) of Americans are unhappy with the amount of immigration crossing the border.
It’s the highest level of immigration dissatisfaction since the Obama Administration.
And while this is truly a red meat issue for the GOP voter base, with 87% of Republicans unhappy with Joe Biden’s crisis on our southern border, they’re not the only ones.
About 55% of independent voters also say there is too much immigration in America.
Both numbers are making open-border Democrats incredibly nervous as the 2022 midterms approach – especially in critical border state races, like Arizona.
With almost nine out of ten Republicans upset about Joe Biden’s immigration crisis, it is an issue likely to drive GOP voters to the polls this November.
And the 55% of independents displeased with Biden’s immigration amounts, it could hurt Democrats’ vote counts in swing states.
Incumbent Democrat Arizona Sen. Mark Kelly is currently running slightly ahead of his hypothetical GOP opponents.
But that could drastically change once one candidate wins the crowded primary on August 2.
Currently, Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich is leading the GOP primary field that also includes Major General Michael McGuire and Businessman Blake Masters.
Attorney General Brnovich recently issued a legal opinion labeling what President Biden has allowed on the southern border an “invasion.”
Brnovich concluded Arizona can Constitutionally act to defend itself against hostile actors.
In practice, according to Article I of the U.S. Constitution, Brnovich’s designation could allow for Arizona police to deport illegal aliens out of the state and send them packing back to their country of origin.
“An actual invasion permits the State to engage in defensive actions within its own territory at or near its border,” Attorney General Brnovich said.
The Daily Mail has been tracking immigration numbers.
“In fiscal year 2021 alone, 1.7 million migrants were apprehended by immigration enforcement,” wrote Daily Mail’s U.S. Politics reporter Katelyn Caralle wrote. “The numbers continued to spike in December with 178,840 encounters at the southern border.”
If the GOP is able to pick up this Grand Canyon State Senate seat, it will be very unlikely that Schumer and the Democrat Party can hold their razor-thin Senate majority.
The immigration issue also could impact another important Arizona race.
There is an open gubernatorial race in Arizona, and the recently Trump-endorsed former TV news anchor Kari Lake could benefit from being on the right-side of the immigration sentiment in the country.
Lake currently leads the AZ GOP gubernatorial field and if she wins, would likely face the strong frontrunner in the Democrat Primary, Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs.
