9-in-10 GOP Voters Support Trump ‘Go Back' Comments, Official Poll Reveals
President's comments may be helping his chances for 2020
Nearly nine-in-ten Republican voters said they support President Donald Trump's comments indirectly telling members of the Democratic 'Squad' to “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime-infested places from which they came.”
Trump mocked the far-left first-term representatives, which seemingly targeted targetting Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who is from Somalia and has been highly critical of the United States.
Trump slammed the Democrats on Twitter for “viciously telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful nation on earth, how our government is to be run."
Trump deflected the lawmaker's criticisms of the US despite arriving “from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world.”
Despite Republican lawmakers like Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA), Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT), Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC), and Rep. Justin Amash (I-MI) – the establishment media slammed Trump's comments, the majority of Republican voters say they like the tweets.
According to a YouGov survey:
About 88 percent or nearly nine-in-ten Republican voter said they thought the tweets were “great,” “good,” or “okay.”
A mere 15 percent of Republican voters said the tweets were “bad” or “terrible.”
Meanwhile, 90 percent of Trump supporters said they liked his tweets, while less than ten percent called them “bad” or “terrible.”
So interesting to see “Progressive” Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly......— Donald J.

....it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 14, 2019

Even among Hispanic American voters, 52 percent said they liked Trump’s tweets, while 53 percent of white Americans said the same.
But swing voters are divided on Trump's “go back” comments.
Forty-eight percent of swing voters said the tweets were “great,” “good,” or “okay."
While another 51 percent said, they found the tweets to be “bad” or “terrible.”
Another poll on Tuesday suggested Ocasio-Cortez Omar (D-MN) recent antics may cost the Democratic Party the presidency and the House in 2020.
According to the Axios report:
"Ocasio-Cortez was recognized by 74% of voters in the poll; 22% had a favorable view."
"Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota — another member of The Squad — was recognized by 53% of the voters; 9% (not a typo) had a favorable view."
It seems that Trump' "go back" remarks are doing anything but hurting his chances for 2020.
