The Premise Poll Finds Plus 10% Plurality Margin Opposing Governors Sending Undocumented Persons to Northern States

Trump remains in statistical dead heat with Biden, who remains underwater in job approval, 51% approve, 42% disapprove

SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 26, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- The Premise Poll, in its latest regular political tracking poll, found that by a margin of 10 points, 42% - 32%, a plurality of Americans oppose sending undocumented individuals from the U.S.-Mexico border to cities in the North. 

Nearly half of respondents (48%) are in favor of increased security along the U.S. and Mexico border. However, 39% are in favor of establishing a way for immigrants here illegally to stay legally, and 39% are in favor of allowing those who came to the U.S. illegally as children (also known as "dreamers") to remain here. Only 27% favor increasing deportation of immigrants here illegally.

The same poll, taken September 17-19, of a total nationwide sample of 1,703 adults, also had former President Donald Trump in a statistical dead heat with President Joe Biden in a possible 2024 presidential election ? with Trump at 49% and Biden at 51%. The Premise Poll's tracking poll from two weeks ago also had Biden and Trump in a statistical tie.

President Biden's job approval ratings remain underwater (virtually unchanged from two weeks ago). 51% somewhat or strongly disapprove of the job President Biden is doing vs. 41% who somewhat or strongly approve. More than three times as many in the sample "strongly disapprove" of Biden's job performance as "strongly approve" ? 31% vs. 10% respectively.

Trump still leads the field of potential GOP candidates by huge margins among Republicans and Republican-leaning independents ? at 63% for Trump to 14% for Florida Governor Ron DeSantis. On the Democratic side, if Biden does not run again, Vice President Kamala Harris is way out front among Democrats and independent leaners ? 36% followed by 18% for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and 10% and 7% for California Governor Gavin Newsom and Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, respectively. 

A narrow margin of Democrats and Democrat-leaning independents in the sample do not think President Biden should run again (52% - 48%), which is virtually identical to the 53% - 47% opposing another run as seen in Premise's tracking poll two weeks ago.
