The debate over building a wall along the southern border of the United States has been a contentious issue for years. Former President Donald Trump made building a border wall a central campaign promise during his 2016 presidential campaign, and continued to advocate for the wall during his presidency. Proponents of a border wall argue that it would help curb illegal immigration, reduce crime, and protect American jobs. They also claim that it would help stop the flow of drugs into the country.
Opponents of a border wall argue that it would be a waste of money and resources, and that it would do little to address the root causes of illegal immigration. They also claim that the wall would have negative environmental impacts and would harm local communities along the border. Some opponents also argue that the wall is a symbol of xenophobia and racism.
The issue has sparked heated debate among politicians, activists, and the public at large. As the U.S. continues to grapple with issues related to immigration and border security, the question of whether or not to build a wall along the southern border remains a divisive one. In this poll, we ask whether or not you believe that the U.S. should build a wall along the southern border.
In a recent poll asking whether the United States should construct a wall along its southern border, the majority of respondents around the world said "no." Of the 8,114 people who participated in the poll, 37.5% said "yes" while 62.5% said "no", showing a significant global opposition to the idea.
People living in Africa, South America, North America, Europe, Asia and Oceania were all polled, with the highest percentages of "no" votes coming from Europeans and Asians, who tallied 62.8% and 63.6% respectively. The lowest percentage of "no" votes came from Oceanians at 63.4%.
In the United States, the results were not far from the global average, with North Americans responding 38.3% "yes" and 61.7% "no".
The poll results suggest that the majority of people around the world are opposed to the idea of building a wall along the southern border of the United States. Whether or not the wall is actually built remains to be seen.
