On today’s What America’s Thinking, a new Hill-HarrisX poll finds 71 percent support the U.S. accepting the number of Afghans eligible for refugee status to include current and former employees of U.S.-based news organizations, U.S.-based aid and development agencies and other relief groups that receive U.S. funding while 29 percent do not. Ryan Grim, Alyssa Farrah, and Kim Iversen are joined by GOP pollster, BJ Martino, to discuss.
This survey was conducted online within the United States from August 17-18 among 974 registered voters by HarrisX. The sampling margin of error of this poll is plus or minus 3.14 percentage points. The results reflect a nationally representative sample of registered voters. Results were weighted for age, gender, region, race/ethnicity, income, political party, education, ideology and area type where necessary to align them with their actual proportions in the population.
