    Voters Expect Trump to Fulfill Campaign Promises, Majority Back Immigration Plans

    A majority of Americans believe that President-elect Donald Trump will keep the promises he made over the course of the campaign, a report from The Hill has revealed.

    According to a survey conducted by the Center for American Political Studies and the National Research Group, 64 per cent of Americans believe that Trump will be either “very or somewhat effective” in fulfilling the promises he made.

    His most prominent campaign promises include building a wall across the Mexican border, repealing and replacing Obamacare, a wide range of tax cuts, and reinvesting in the nation’s infrastructure.

    The research suggests that Trump’s most popular policy remains investing in infrastructure, with 78 percent of registered voters in favor of the promise, whilst 53 per cent of respondents believe he will meet this promise.

    There is also a high level of support for many of his immigration policies, with 90 percent of respondents saying he is right to deport illegal immigrants with a criminal record, whilst 72 percent believe in comprehensive immigration reform.

    A majority of people, 57 percent, also approve of Trump’s promise to stop immigration from Syria and other countries with prominent links to Islamic terrorism.

    One of Trump’s least popular policies is his plan to repeal and replace Obamacare, with only 46 percent of people believing this is the right course of action. However, following his election victory, Trump suggested that some of the key provisions of the Affordable Care Act would remain.

    The obtaining of this polling data took place between 19th to 21st November and surveyed 2,200 registered voters, with an estimated margin of error of two percent.

    That's really good! I think there will be growing support for the repeal of Obamacare when Trump starts laying out some details of his new plan. But keep it simple, keep it straightforward, so people understand it. And I'm not a fan of "tax credits" for insurance because most people who can't afford health insurance as it is don't pay any taxes to begin with or certainly not enough to make a difference. Plus, we want to get rid of the income tax, at least a great many of US do, so tying your health insurance program to the income tax is counter-productive. The FairTax will reduce the underlying cost of medical care costs (hospitals) and this is what will actually reduce the "rising cost of health insurance" along with increased competition and efficiencies by repealing the McFarran-Ferguson Act of 1945 which Trump has said all along he wants to do right away.

    "whilst 72 percent believe in comprehensive immigration reform."

    It's hard to believe that 72% favor amnesty. People that have entered the country illegally or overstayed their Visas should never be given legal status, in my opinion.

    It was a trick question. When people hear the phrase comprehensive immigration reform they really don't understand that means legalizing the illegal, they think it means fixing as in stopping this massive immigration that's stealing their jobs.

    We're in our Period of Ironies and Opposites, people assume a reform of any kind means fixing something, but of course the irony is, it really means making the problem permanent, the complete opposite of what "reform" means.
