A majority of Americans have favored Donald Trump's southern border over Alexandria Ocasio Cortez 's Green New Deal, according to a poll released on Wednesday. 

The poll reveals that Fifty-one percent of Americans say they would rather have border wall on America’s southern border, compared to a marginally smaller 31 percent who say that they want a Green New Deal, the Remington Research Group revealed.

Republicans have expressed their preference to border wall by a 68-point margin, while Independents said they would favor a border wall by a two-to-one margin.

But overall, the bulk of Americans (51 percent), said they oppose a Green New Deal.

But 51 percent of Democrats support the extreme environmental program.

Meanwhile, Republicans and Independents overwhelmingly oppose Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-NY) idea outright.

President of Remington Research Group, Titus Bond, explained how the Democrats now face a battle to convince Republicans and Independents to back the Green New Deal.

The Green New Deal has split Americans, while Democratic voters support the legislation, the rest of the country opposes it.

It will be interesting to see how Democratic leaders and 2020 hopefuls navigate this issue with their base while trying to keep the support of their mainstream voters.

The Green New Deal could end up costing $93 trillion over a decade, according to a report from American Action Forum (AAF).

The figure estimates that each American household would pay $36,100 to $65,300 per year to meet the Green New Deal’s goals, the AAF report claims.

The deals goals include “net-zero” emissions, guaranteed jobs, universal health care, widespread high-speed rail and upgrading every building.

According to a report from the Guardian, Mitch McConnell, who plans to hold a vote on the Green New Deal resolution recently introduced by congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Senator Edward Markey (D-MA) called the plan "irresponsible."

Despite polls suggesting broad bipartisan support for a Green New Deal, McConnell thinks his ploy will divide Democrats and boost the GOP talking point that the plan is "fiscally irresponsible."
