31% Give Biden Good/Excellent Marks for Dealing With the Southern Border

When it comes to the situation at the Southern border of the United States, 31% of voters say the Biden Administration is doing a good or excellent job. That’s down five points from 36% in late May.

A Scott Rasmussen national survey found that 38% say the presidents’ team is doing a poor job with the border. In between are 19% who rate the performance as fair. Eleven percent (11%) are not sure.

Fifty-one percent (51%) of Democrats give the president positive marks for handling the border. Just 17% of Republicans and 17% of Independents agree.

The survey also found that 75% of voters believe legal immigration is good for the United States. Just 12% believe it is bad and only 15% believe illegal immigration is good for the nation.

The survey of 1,200 Registered Voters was conducted online by Scott Rasmussen from August 10-11, 2021. Field work for the survey was conducted by RMG Research, Inc. Respondents were selected from a list of Registered Voters and through a process of Random Digital Engagement. Certain quotas were applied, and the sample was lightly weighted by geography, gender, age, race, education, internet usage, and political party to reasonably reflect the nation’s population of Registered Voters. Other variables were reviewed to ensure that the final sample is representative of that population.
