Polls and Voters...

So, a poll from The Hill says that a majority of voters oppose building a wall on the border with Mexico. That's 59% oppose, 37% support. Who voted in this poll? 1333 (and isn't that number just a little suspicious?) registered voters. Not likely voters. And the last time we had an actual election on this issue, with millions of people weighing in on building the wall as a major centerpiece of Trump's proposed policies, Trump won.

Because Trump won, and because his party won control of both houses of Congress, the policies of that party should, in some form, be implemented. That means Trump should get a wall.

That he doesn't already have one is an embarrassing failure of democracy. (It's not like there are serious constitutional barriers; just political ones).
