( – A majority of Americans were found in a new survey to disagree with the Biden administration’s handling of immigration ahead of the 2024 presidential election. 

The Associated Press/NORC poll showed that 68 percent of respondents across the United States did not approve of the immigration policy, while only 31 percent approved. Out of those, 56 percent of Democratic voters did approve of President Biden’s handling of the issue. 

Ahead of the 2024 presidential election, illegal immigration is shaping up to be a key issue, especially as former President Donald Trump, who is the presumptive GOP candidate, has been drawing a lot of focus on the issue and has made it one of his central campaign promises. 

The Center for Immigration Studies in a recent study noted that there are 3.7 million illegal immigrants who have entered the country since January 2021, when Biden had first assumed office. 

The AP/NORC poll found that 35 percent of Americans believed that Trump was either “extremely” or “very” responsible for the current issues at the border, while 48 percent believed the same about Biden. 

Around 53 percent of responders also argued that they wanted to see a reduction in the number of migrants allowed to seek asylum. Regarding the possible construction of a border wall, 42 percent had been open to the idea. 

The poll took place between March 21st and 25th, and in total 1,282 adults who were over the age of 18 were surveyed as part of the poll.
