Only 14% of Trump Voters Want to Invade Mexico

According to a new PPP poll released today, here are some of the views of people who voted for Donald Trump:

Now, before you all get too bent out of shape, I’d like to point out that there’s some good news here: only 14 percent of Trump’s supporters want to invade Mexico. Not so bad, eh?

I’d also like to point out that a week ago I predicted that lots of Trump supporters would hear about the Bowling Green massacre but only a few would hear that it didn’t actually happen. Well, I was right. Belief in the BGM outscored disbelief 51-23 percent. And isn’t that what’s really important? That I was right?

Dear Reader,

This feels like the most important fundraising drive since I've been CEO of Mother Jones, with staggeringly high stakes and so much uncertainty. In "News Is Just Like Waste Management," I try to unpack the reality we all face and how we can rise to the challenge. If you're able to, this is a critical moment to support Mother Jones’ nonprofit journalism: We need to raise $400,000 to help cover the vital reporting projects we have planned, and right now is no time to pull back.
