Schumer Shutdown IV by The Elephant's Child

The shutdown apparently ended just before 1 o’clock when Minority Leader Chuck Schumer made the announcement that Democrats would vote in favor of reopening. The final tally was 81-18.

New polling from Harvard-Harris shows that Democrats following Schumer’s lead to shut down the government on the issue of illegal immigration was wildly unpopular among the majority of Americans.

When asked, “Would you favor or oppose Democrats voting to shut the government down if the continuing budget resolution does not include restoring so-called DACA work permits for undocumented immigrants brought here illegally by their parents?” 58 percent of voters responded with “oppose.”

Polling also showed a majority back White House priorities on ending the Diversity Visa Lottery Program, eliminating chain migration and building a border wall.

OOOps!
