According to a recent poll, the majority of registered U.S. voters approve of the citizenship question’s inclusion in the upcoming 2020 census. The poll, conducted by the Harvard University Center for American Political Studies/Harris in June, found that 67% of registered voters favor the idea, as reported by the Washington Times. Even more noteworthy, however, was the discovery that 55% of Hispanic voters do, too - the majority of a Democrat-leaning demographic.
On Tuesday, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway gave her thoughts on the issue and asked why the citizenship question should be an issue at all. The Washington Times noted that the census makes a variety of household inquiries, which was the main point of Conway’s argument. “We’re asking people how many toilets (are) in your house and you don’t want to know who’s using them? It’s absolutely ridiculous,” she told Fox News.
To the Democrats, whom Conway blamed for making the citizenship question a matter of controversy, she asks, “What are you afraid of? Why wouldn’t you want to know who’s living in this country, and who’s a citizen and who’s not a citizen?”
