"Your forecast is coming up at fifty pass on seven forty KTAR h seven forty eight now here on Houston's morning news. You know, Texas voters fifty four percent of them. According to this Texas politics project, a poll, Texas, university of Texas Texas Tribune poll says fifty four percent of Texas voters agreed that undocumented immigrants currently living in the US should be deported. Immediately. Fifty four percent, which is really high joining us about Joshua blank, Texas politics project at UT Austin with a number of that high makes me wonder how it is that Beethoven works only four points behind Ted Cruz. That's a good question. Well, you know, the thing about it is immigration and border security is is a big issue. But that issue is really driven in the state by Republican voters, and you know to answer that question. Yeah. This is really an election about mobilization and not persuasion. And so it's possible that you know to see number like that. But realize that that number is driven really again by primarily by Republican voters. Yeah. What's also interesting to me is how many Hispanics agree with that statement. Yeah. This is a surprise to a lot of people. I think a lot of people assume that Hispanics in Texas, are you going to be liberal in their attitudes towards immigration policy? But the reality is Hispanics living in Texas. A lot of them have lived here a long time, and they're part of the political culture. And so we find consistently that about a third of Hispanics whole consistently. You know, we can just simply describe it as Republican attitudes, including up unitive attitudes on immigration and immigration policy. Was it just a yes or no answer for me? Were you able to judge degree? And or was it worded? You know, somehow that you would have such strong divide. Do you agree or disagree with that with the following statement? You know, what you just read? And then we asked whether they strongly agree somewhat agree somewhat, disagree or strongly disagree in general. You know, the the distribution between somewhat in strong on either side is relatively relatively similar. But it changes based on the context, I think right now. Yeah. There's numbers are a little bit high, but not terribly high historically, but there, but they are higher than usual. And part of the reason I think they're higher than usual is the fact that we're seeing a lot of discussion about the immigrant caravan heading towards the United States. Obviously, the president is talking a lot about immigration, and what you're also seeing as Democrats for the most part of waiting the issue, and that creates a one sided issue environment in which you know, sort of reinforces us that people already hold here were you seeing in in the questioning, Josh were you seeing you we we have this this huge partisan divide in this country right now, we're seeing those answers strongly agree or strongly disagree show up more often than somewhat. They're starting to. I mean, I think that's what you're heavy not as the ideas from the polarization of attitudes and keeping moving more towards the extremes. Letting that is the case that you are seen as I mean, for example, since we last asked this question in June. There's a ten point increase in the share Republicans who agreed with that. And some of that is also just Republicans moving from the somewhat strong category. And likewise, you're seeing Democrats increasingly disagree with that statement. And and I think again, the strengthening those attitudes. Well that goes to enthusiasm and what's going to drive people to the polls in people trying to figure out is there more of them than more of us. Will you know both sides. Definitely definitely the case. You know? But at this point. All that really matters is about looking at the other side in deciding whether you're going to vote or not yourself. Well, based on what we're seeing at least in Harris County, Texas looks looks like a lot. I don't know if it's the same way in Austin. But we're certainly seeing a lot of early voting that tells us that voter enthusiasm is pretty high on both sides. Yeah, we're seeing it all over the state. And the reality is is that, you know, if you look at the fifteen biggest counties right now, this looks a lot more like a presidential election year than it does like a midterm year. That's for sure.
