Three times as many Americans say security at the US-Mexico border is worse under President Biden than it was under Donald Trump — while the commander in chief has the third-lowest approval rating for a president at their first 100 days in office, according to a pair of polls released Sunday
A Fox News poll found about 45 percent of Americans said they agreed that the situation at the southern border is worse-off than it was two years ago. Thirty-three percent said it was about the same, while 15 percent believe it is better.
The assessment stands in stark contrast to when the same poll in 2018 found that only 15 percent of Americans said they believe security at the border had become worse under Trump when compared to two years prior.
Around 38 percent said they “completely” believe that the increase of migrants attempting to illegally cross the border is due to the fact that Biden is president. Another 39 percent said that Biden’s presidency is “mostly” or “a little” to blame, while only 15 percent agreed that it has played no role.
