YouGov Poll: 53% of Hispanics Say Deport Illegals

By    |   Monday, 17 June 2024 05:28 PM EDT

Illegal immigration continues to be a hot-button topic this election season, and a poll released Monday showed there is broad support, including among Hispanics, for mass national deportation, something former President Donald Trump has been advocating on the campaign trail.

The CBS/YouGov poll of 1,615 registered voters conducted June 5-7 found that 62%, including 53% of Hispanics, favored a federal program to deport illegal immigrants living in the U.S. The poll has a margin of error of +/- 3.8 percentage points.

Surprisingly, 38% of Democrats supported such a measure, as well as 58% of women and 47% of Black voters.

Although 52% opposed the government establishing large detention centers to hold illegal immigrants while it determines whether they should be deported, 62% favored local police and law enforcement trying to identify which people were U.S. citizens and which were in the country illegally.

The only demographic opposed to the identification measure were Democrats at 55% and liberals at 66%. But 57% of Hispanic voters favored the identification measure and 50% favored establishing large detention centers.

The poll's results appear to be in line with how Hispanic voters reportedly are trending toward Trump. In 2020, President Joe Biden won roughly 59% of the Hispanic vote, according to the Pew Research Center, but this poll showed Trump trails Biden by only 1 percentage point (50%-49%) among likely Hispanic voters surveyed.

The poll also showed Trump getting 18% support of likely Black voters, which could be a bad sign for Biden, who won 92% of the Black vote in 2020, according to Pew.
