New Viral Poll Shows MORE SUPPORT for BORDER WALL Over GREEN NEW DEAL
I can’t really say that’s a shocker. Here’s why: More people know about the border wall than the young socialists who took the time to read what The Green New Deal is about. That’s my theory.
I think these results would be even more obvious if more voters knew what the Green New Deal would screw up versus what the Border Wall actually prevents: illegal immigration.
Cortez must be shocked!

A new poll spells bad news for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her Green New Deal.
The Non-Partisan CBO estimates the Green New Deal would cost an estimated $93 trillion, or $600K per American household.
That enormous cost is nearly 17,000 times more than the $5.7 billion Trump was seeking for the wall.
WYPR reported that Politically, the Green New Deal has no chance of passing and becoming law, as written — with the Republican majority in the Senate opposing it, along with the President. The resolution would set a nonbinding goal of the U.S. cutting greenhouse gas emissions down to zero as a method of fighting climate change.
But passage was never the goal of the sponsors, who said they wanted to create a positive blueprint for the American future, beyond just opposing President Trump.
What’s been most interesting about the news coverage of the Green New Deal is how several commentators have portrayed it as a leftist radical equivalent of Trump’s radical right wing populism and its expensive and impractical promise of building a wall along America’s 2,000 mile border with Mexico.
Well, if that’s the case, and the Green New Deal is like Trump’s border wall, then according to the new polling, Americans embrace Trump’s wall and soundly reject Ocasio-Coretz’s Green New Deal.
