So at least 44% of respondents believe that it is Biden and his administration who are responsible for the increase in the number of migrants at the border, Trump is accused of this by 28%. The same responsibility for this situation is assigned to them by 20% of the respondents.
It is noted that among the supporters of the Republican Party, 73% of respondents blame the current administration, while 46% of Democratic voters accuse Trump.
The survey was conducted on the Internet from March 24 to 26. It was attended by 1882 people who are registered voters. The margin of error is approximately 2.26 percentage points.
