Voters Don’t Agree That Newcomers Love America More Than Natives

Voters tend to disagree with one of the so-called Democratic congressional Squad members that new immigrants love America more than those who were born here.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that just 28% of Likely U.S. Voters agree with the following statement about America – “I believe, as an immigrant, I probably love this country more than anyone that is naturally born [here].” Forty percent (40%) disagree with the statement made last weekend by Congresswoman Ilhan Omar of Minnesota. But one-in-three voters (32%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
