The Democrats are counting on Michigan reversing their votes in 2020 but it is beginning to look like it will be more of the same. A focus group was put together made up of voters who in the past have voted for both parties for president.
But, they are unlikely to swing from Trump to the Democrat. They are not happy that the Democrats are advocating for open borders and even less happy that they want to give free healthcare to all illegal aliens. And it appears that the voters are anxious to have their say at the ballot box.
There is no way for the Democrats to backtrack on either issue now, so Michigan could once again help Trump in the election.
An Axios report which chronicled a focus group of Michigan swing voters — those who voted for Mitt Romney in 2012, but switched to vote for Hillary Clinton in 2016 and those who voted for Barack Obama twice, but switched to vote for Trump in 2016 — finds that by a majority these voters prefer Trump’s low-immigration, high-wage economic model as opposed to the 2020 Democrats’ plans to allow an unlimited flow of foreign workers to the country, legally and illegally.
The focus group, conducted by Engagious/FPG, revealed that the majority of the 12 swing voters said Trump is “professionally and responsibly” handling the current crisis of mass illegal immigration at the southern border.
Likewise, the swing voters slammed 2020 Democrats’ latest plan that would provide free health care to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the U.S., paid for by American taxpayers. As Breitbart News has reported, the plan would cost taxpayers at least $660 billion every ten years.
“Why would you want to give it to another person from a different country for free?” one swing voter asked, according to Axios‘s Alexi McCammond, who sat in on the focus group.
“Give them free benefits, this that and the other thing,” another said. “That is ridiculous. They’ll come from anywhere and get a house and a car, too.”
