Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has said that he would block cash from being sent home by Mexicans in the US in order to fund his controversial border wall. According to Trump’s line of thinking, the prospect of Mexico losing billions of dollars in payments would cripple its economy and force the country to make “a one-time payment of $5-10 billion” to pay for the wall. US President Barack Obama criticized Trump’s plan, labeling it half-baked and unworkable, adding that a Mexican economic collapse would only send more migrants north in search of work. Current and former Mexican leaders have repeatedly lambasted Trump’s plan but how do American voters feel about it?

Data compiled by the Pew Research Center reveals that 59 percent of all voters oppose the border wall while 38 percent are in favor of it. Republican and Republican-leaning registered voters back Trump’s vision of a border wall, as do a large majority of his supporters. Opposition is high among Democrats with 82 percent of Clinton supporters and 91 percent of Sanders supporters opposing Trump’s concrete ambitions for the border.
