Proper Marketing

A new poll indicates that the population loves the idea of a border fence, but the political class hates it:

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 68% of U.S. voters now believe the United States should continue to build a fence on the Mexican border. That’s up nine points from March when the Obama administration halted funding for the fence and the highest level of support ever.

Just 21% oppose the continued building of the border fence.

Support for the fence is strong across all demographic groups. But while 76% of Mainstream voters think the United States should continue to build the fence, 67% of the Political Class are opposed to it.

Do you know the best way to get our superiors in Washington, D.C., and New York to back a fence on the Mexican border?

Tell them it is there to keep American guns out of Mexico.

We need to keep each and every gun, both of them, that would cross the border into Mexico in the good old USA.

  1. Actually, if I recall, Congress actually defunded the project because it didn’t really want to do it. So the Right was sold on spending money on it, but the Democrats didn’t want to waste money on it.

    The Democrats would never try to sell it that way anyhow. It aggravates one of its voting blocs. Instead, they’ll just use stimulus to patch budget holes in programs employing public service union members instead of actually building much of anything.
