If you are opposed to the Great Replacement and see the issue in racial terms as a conspiracy by liberal elites to replace White people, your views are no longer “extreme.” Republican support for decreasing immigration has jumped from 49% to 69% since June 2020.
“WASHINGTON, D.C. — The U.S. remains highly fractured over immigration policy, with 27% of Americans saying immigration should be increased, 31% preferring that it be kept at the current level and 38% wanting it decreased. …
The mounting desire for decreased immigration in recent years has been driven mainly by Republicans, whose preference for reducing immigration is up 21 points since June 2020, when 48% expressed this. This contrasts with a five-point increase among independents, to 33%, and a four-point increase among Democrats, to 17%.
Longer term, views on immigration policy have become increasingly polarized. In 2008, at the end of the George W. Bush administration, 46% of Republicans and 39% of Democrats wanted immigration decreased — a seven-percentage-point difference. By 2009, that gap had widened to 17 points, and it has since stretched to the current 52 points. …”
We see this 70% number in a lot of places.
I coined the term White Populism to describe this shift in polls that I began to notice around the beginning of the Biden presidency. 70% of Republican voters are becoming more ethnocentric. Meanwhile, what used to be the GOP establishment has become the new fringe of the party.
Liz Cheney is a fringe candidate. We are the mainstream now.
NPR is out with a new immigration poll this morning.
The poll finds declining support for immigration, increased support for building the border wall, declining support for a DREAM Act amnesty, a widespread belief that the United States is being invaded by illegal aliens and that the Great Replacement is real conspiracy by liberals and Democrats to replace native born Americans. These shifts are all fueled by hardening attitudes among Republicans.
“More than half of Americans say there’s an “invasion” at the southern border, according to a new NPR/Ipsos poll, part of a broader decline in support for immigrants overall. …
The poll found that a majority of Americans — including three-quarters of Republicans — say it’s either somewhat or completely true that the United States is “experiencing an invasion” at the southern border. …
Republicans were also more likely to endorse rhetoric that echoes the so-called “replacement theory” — the false conspiracy theory that Jews or elites are deliberately replacing white Americans with immigrants and people of color.
More than a third of all poll respondents agree that “native-born Americans are being systematically replaced by immigrants” — including more than half of Republicans. Almost half of all Americans say that “Democrats are working to open our borders to more immigrants,” with more than 70% of Republicans in agreement. …
When asked four years ago, nearly two-thirds of respondents favored a pathway to legal status for the so-called Dreamers, undocumented immigrants who were brought to the country as children. Now that support has fallen to a bare majority, driven largely by a steep drop among Republicans and independents. …”
This is the latest poll which shows that over half of Republican voters believe in the Great Replacement now. I was asked about this yesterday. There have been multiple polls on this which show that somewhere between 50% to 70% of Republican voters believe the Great Replacement is happening.
