Leftward Ho: Support for Abolishing ICE

In Defying the Odds, we discuss the Sanders candidacy and the leftward drift of the Democratic Party.

Sean McElwee at NYT:

Data for Progress also commissioned a national survey from YouGov Blue. We asked respondents, “Would you support or oppose defunding Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and enforcing immigration violations like other civil infractions?” We found 32 percent of respondents in support and 38 percent opposed (with another 30 saying neither or they didn’t know). Half of Democrats supported defunding ICE (18 percent opposed) and among people under 45, 33 percent supported the idea and 27 percent opposed it.
