Polling Details: Across Parties, Americans Support People Seeking Refuge

 

Polling crosstabs are available for all adults (n=1,200) and for a subset of 1,000 registered voters.

See the Forum’s related Sept. 22 press release.

In a poll of 1,200 adults conducted Sept. 16-19, 2021, we asked: “Do you agree or disagree that the United States should have a legal, secure process in place to take in people from oppressed or war-torn countries, such as Afghanistan?” Here are some key takeaways:

Overall, among 1,200 adults polled, 65% agree, 20% disagree, 14% said they were unsure.

Among Republicans (n=379), 61% agree, 27% disagree, 13% were unsure.

Among Independents (n=387), 63% agree, 21% disagree, 17% were unsure.

Among Democrats (n = 401), 75% agree, 14% disagree, 12% were unsure.

Among evangelicals (380 people who identified themselves as born again or evangelical), 68% agree, 20% disagree, 12% were unsure.

Among former evangelicals (184 people who said they previously identified as born again or evangelical), 70% agree, 19% disagree, 11% were unsure.

The National Immigration Forum in conjunction with The Bullfinch Group conducted the nationwide online survey. Sampling controls were used to ensure that a proportional and representative number of respondents were interviewed from demographic groups such as age, gender, political affiliation, race, and geographic region. The overall margin of error is ±2.83% at the 95% confidence interval for overall survey. The margin of error for registered voters is ±3.1% at the 95% confidence interval. Percentages may not add up to 100 due to rounding.
