(TNS)Â Midterms: If ever there was a galvanizing issue for Republican voters, it’s immigration or, rather,Â illegal immigration, according to a new survey just weeks away from the Nov. 6 midterm elections.
According to theÂ Kaiser Family Foundation Health TrackingÂ Poll, 25 percent of Republicans said immigration is the most important midterm issue. â€œEconomy and Jobsâ€ (23 percent) came in second, followed by healthcare (17 percent), â€œgun policyâ€ (17 percent), and â€œtax cuts and reformâ€ (7 percent),Â Breitbart News reported.
POTUS Donald Trump has attempted to take the immigration issue front-and-center ahead of the midterms, and his efforts were greatly assisted this week by Left-wing groups who are funding the migrant caravan heading towards the U.S. via Honduras and Guatemala.
During a campaign event in Montana for GOP Senate candidate Matt Rosendale, the president brought up the immigration issue.
The president said he is ready to send the military to the U.S.-Mexico border â€œbecause of the illegal immigration onslaught brought by the Democratsâ€ while referring to the 2018 midterm elections as â€œan election of the caravan.”
He also hit Democrats over their mistreatment of Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
â€œThis will be an election of [Justice Brett] Kavanaugh, the caravan, law and order, and common sense,â€ Trump said, accusing Democrats of wanting more illegal immigrant migrants to enter the country because they â€œfigure everybody coming in is going to vote Democrat.â€
