A new Rasmussen Reports national phone and online survey found 66 percent of likely U.S. voters believe the current situation at the U.S.-Mexico border is a crisis, despite what the Biden-Harris administration may claim.

Twenty percent said it is not a crisis while 13 percent are not sure.

While Biden has attempted to pin the blame on President Donald J. Trump’s administration, 50 percent of voters said the current immigration problems are caused by Biden’s policies. Forty-one percent agree that the crisis is due to policies from Trump.

Eighty-five percent of Republicans say the current situation is a crisis. Sixty-seven percent of unaffiliated voters agree, as do 49 percent of Democrats.

While Republicans and Democrats are predictable in terms of who they blame for the crisis, unaffiliated voters have a pretty decisive opinion.

Fifty-six percent of unaffiliated voters blame Biden while 33 percent blame Trump.
