Fox News poll shows 52 percent of voters oppose tariffs on Mexico


CHARLES: BRAND NEW FOX NEWS POLL SHOW 57% OF VOTERS FEEL OPTIMISTIC ABOUT THE ECONOMY, THAT’S DOWN FROM 63% IN FEBRUARY , AND IT’S ON THE HEELS OF THE U.S. MEXICO DEAL ON IMMIGRATION. OVER HALF VOTERS SAY THEY OPPOSE PRESIDENT TRUMP’S INITIAL PLAN TO USE TARIFFS TO PRESSURE OUR SOUTHERN NEIGHBOR. 45% ALSO DISAGREE WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP SAYING TARIFFS HURT RATHER THAN HELP THE ECONOMY. THIS COMES AHEAD OF THE G20 SUMMIT IN JAPAN LATER THIS MONTH WHERE PRESIDENT TRUMP SAYS HE EXPECTS TO MEET WITH CHINA’S XI-JINPING TO DISCUSS THE TRADE SHOWDOWN. WANT TO BRING IN WHITE HOUSE TRADE ADVISOR PETER NAVARRO. PETER, IT’S INTERESTING BECAUSE PRESIDENT TRUMP GETS HIGH MARKS ON THE ECONOMY BUT THE MARKS WILL LOWER WHEN PEOPLE ARE ASKED ABOUT THE TACTICS, SO WHAT DO YOU MAKE OF THESE THINGS, BECAUSE YOU ARE PERHAPS THE CHIEF ARCHITECT, IF YOU WILL, OR ADVOCATE OF THE USE OF TARIFFS IN THESE NEGOTIATIONS.>> CHARLES, I THINK A LOT OF IT HAS TO DO WITH HOW THE QUESTION IS ASKED. POLLS SHOW THAT ABOUT 80% OF AMERICANS BELIEVE THERE’S A CRISIS AT THE BORDER. IF YOU ASK AMERICANS IN A POLL WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT 100,000 ILLEGAL ALIENS MOVING EVERY DAY ON A CONVEYOR BELT FROM GUATEMALA UP TO SAN DIEGO AND EL PASO. I’D SAY ABOUT 90% OF THEM WOULD OBJECT TO THAT, AND THE TARIFFS THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP USED, HE GOT IN TWO DAYS MORE THAN CONGRESS DID IN 20 YEARS ON THIS WE’VE GOT TROOPS DOWN AT THE SOUTHERN BORDER THAT MEXICO HAS DEPLOYED. WE’VE GOT MEXICO COMMITTING TO TAKE THE ASYLUM SEEKERS ON TO MEXICAN SOIL WHICH WILL DETER FURTHER IMMIGRATION FROM THE NORTHERN TRIANGLE DOWN AT THE SOUTHERN BORDER OF MEXICO AND WE HAVE A VERY STRONG COMMITMENT TO BREAK UP THAT CONVEYOR BELT WHICH IS THIS MACHINE OF NARCO TRAFFICKERS AND HUMAN TRAFFICKERS MAKING BILLIONS OF DOLLARS OFF THESE POOR IMMIGRANT S COMING UP, AND OFF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WHO HAVE TO TAKE THEIR DRUGS AND THE ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS WHICH HURT US IN TERMS OF JOBS. CHARLES: AND PETER THERE’S NO DOUBT THAT IT WORKS SWIFTLY WITH MEXICO. IT HASN’T WORKED AS FAST. BEAUTIFULLY. CHARLES: IT HASN’T WORKED AS FAST WITH CHINA AND NOW CRITICS ARE SAYING IT WON’T WORK AT ALL. WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS?>> AGAIN LET’S DO THE POLLING ON THIS. HARVARD HARRIS POLL CAME OUT AND SHOWED A STRONG MAJORITY OF AMERICANS SUPPORT THE CHINA TARIFFS AND EIGHT OUT OF 10 REPUBLICANS AND THEY DO THAT, BECAUSE THERE’S A GROWING AWARENESS NOW OF CHINA’S ECONOMIC AGGRESSION. WE HAD A DEAL WITH CHINA AND IT WAS OVER 150 PAGES ON SEVEN CHAPTERS AND I THINK CHARLES IT’S ALWAYS USEFUL TO REMIND THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WHAT WE’RE TRYING TO NEGOTIATE AN END TO. IT’S THE CYBER INTRUSION INTO OUR BUSINESS NETWORKS TO STEAL OUR TRADE SECRETS. IT’S THE FORCED TECHNOLOGY TRANSFER PRACTICES THAT THE CONDITION THE MARKET ACCESS. IT’S THE INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY THEFT THAT CHINA ENGAGES IN TO THE TUNE OF SEVERAL HUNDRED BILLION DOLLARS A YEAR. IT’S THE DUMBING OF THE PRODUCT THE FENTANYL AND THAT’S THE ONE, THE FENTANYL COMING IN KILLING TENS OF THOUSANDS OF AMERICANS. THAT’S MADE RIGHT IN CHINA. I WAS IN ARGENTINA BACK IN DECEMBER WHEN THE PRESIDENT OF CHINA PROMISED TO STOP THAT FLOW , AND WE HAVEN’T SEEN ANY OF THAT YET. CHARLES: PETER ALL THAT STUFF IS WHY THOSE TARIFFS HAVE BECOME POPULAR WITH THE AMERICAN PUBLIC MULTI-NATIONAL BUSINESSES THOUGH , THEY REVERT BACK TO THE NOTION THAT ANY KIND OF A TRADE WITH PARTNERS IS GOOD AND YOU JUST WROTE A PIECE ABOUT THIS. I DON’T WANT TO GET TOO WONKY.>> OH, GET WONKY. I LOVE IT. CHARLES: RICARDO IS DEAD ESSENTIALLY SOMEONE, THE IDEA OF COMPARATIVE ADVANTAGE AND IF SOME COUNTRY WANTS TO SELL US CHEAP PLASTIC STUFF, WE BENEFIT AND THEY BENEFIT, YOU’RE SAYING THAT WE SHOULD SMASH THAT, DESPITE THE FACT THAT 600 CEO’S JUST WROTE PRESIDENT TRUMP A LETTER THIS WEEK SAYING THAT THEY’RE AGAINST HIS TARIFF TACTICS. WHAT ARE THEY GETTING WRONG?>> I THINK WHAT WE LEARNED IN THE LAST 20 YEARS UNDER BIDEN AND BUSH AND HILLARY CLINTON IS THAT WHEN YOU OFFSHORE FACTORIES AND JOBS TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE SO-CALLED COST EFFICIENCIES AND THE GLOBALIZED SUPPLY CHAIN YOU WIND UP JUST TEARING THE HEART OUT OF THE AMERICAN ECONOMY AND THAT RIPPLES DOWN INTO NATIONAL SECURITY PROBLEMS. PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP FIGURED THAT OUT 20 YEARS AGO WHEN THIS WAS HAPPENING. HE’S PRESIDENT NOW. HE’S DOING SOMETHING ABOUT IT. WE LIKE LOCALIZED SUPPLY CHAIN BECAUSE THEY BRING THE JOBS HOME FROM A NATIONAL SECURITY POINT OF VIEW IT PROVIDES US WITH LESS RISK SO TO THOSE CEO’S WHO WANT TO GO OFF THE FOREIGN LANDS AND THEN SELL THEIR PRODUCTS BACK HERE, USING CHEAP LABOR, AND BAD REGULATIONS OUT THERE, WE SAY NO THAT’S NOT GOING TO HAPPEN UNDER DONALD TRUMP’S WATCH. CHARLES: I THINK IT’S ALSO A GREAT TIME TO POINT OUT THAT FOR PEOPLE WHO WANT TO FEEL PROUD ABOUT THIS COUNTRY, YOU KNOW IF YOU INSIST ONGOING TO BUSINESS WITH A COUNTRY THAT’S LOCKED UP 1 MILLION PEOPLE FOR THEIR RELIGIOUS BELIEFS YOU SHOULD THINK ABOUT THAT. THESE 600 CEO’S PROBABLY SHOULD CONSIDER THAT WHEN THEY PUT PRESSURE ON THE WHITE HOUSE AHEAD OF THE G20 MEETING. EVERYONE IS ENTITLED TO THEIR OPINION, I UNDERSTAND CLASSIC ECONOMICS BUT LIKE YOU, PETER I’M CONCERNED AND I THINK FOR ME I’M WONDERING WHETHER THE ADMINISTRATION SHOULD CONTINUE TO ARTICULATE THEIR POSITION BECAUSE LISTEN, THE BILLIONAIRES IN THIS COUNTRY HAVE A LOT OF PLATFORMS AND THEY GET THEIR MESSAGE OUT EVERY SINGLE DAY.>> WELL I THINK WE’RE GETTING OUR MESSAGE OUT AS WELL IN THE TWO AND A HALF YEARS THAT THE PRESIDENT HAS BEEN IN OFFICE AND BY THE WAY, CHARLES, IT IS THE FOURTH YEAR ANNIVERSARY OF THE MOST FAMOUS ELSE CAN LATE OR RIDE IN HISTORY AND CONGRATULATIONS TO DONALD TRUMP BUT IN THE TWO AND A HALF YEARS PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS BEEN IN OFFICE, HE HAS CHANGED THE NARRATIVE ON CHINA FOREVER. THE PRIOR TO HIM TAKING OFFICE, THE IDEA WAS ECONOMICALLY ENGAGED WITH THE CHINESE, IT WOULD BE PEACE AND TODAY THE BIPARTISAN CONSENSUS IS CHINA IS A STRATEGIC RIVAL HAVE TO TAKE OUR JOBS OR FACTORIES. CHARLES: LET ME JUMP IN THERE REAL QUICK I GOT TO ASK YOU ABOUT THIS YOU BROUGHT UP BIPARTISAN AGREEMENT ON CHINA. YOU’RE RIGHT THE WORLD SEES AMERICANS NOW SEE THAT PLASTIC STUFF CAME AT A COST WE SHOULD NEVER HAVE ENDURED BUT WHERE IS THE BIPARTISANSHIP ON A U.S. MCA WHEN IS THAT GOING TO GET APPROVED? WHY IS IT BEING HELD UP?>> GREAT QUESTION CHARLES. LET’S TALK ABOUT WHAT THAT IS. THE U.S. MCA, U.S. CANADA MEXICO CANADA AGREEMENT IS A REPLACEMENT FOR THE WORST TRADE DEAL IN HISTORY WHICH IS NAFTA. MY FAVORITE PART OF THE DEAL IS THE STRICT RULES OF ORIGIN PROVISIONS ON AUTOS AND OTHER PRODUCTS, COUPLED WITH STRONG ENVIRONMENTAL AND LABOR PROVISIONS, WHICH WILL BRING OUR HOME AND KEEP IT HOME. I THINK IT WILL GET PASSED IT’S IN THE GREAT INTEREST OF AMERICAN WORKERS, FARMERS, RANCH ERS AND MANUFACTURES. I THINK THERE’S A BROAD BIPARTISAN SUPPORT WHERE WE’RE HOPING TO IMPLEMENT LEGISLATION ON TO THE FLOOR OF THE HOUSE AND THE SENATE THIS SUMMER. THAT’S WHAT WE’RE TARGETING. CHARLES: NANCY PELOSI I HOPE SHE’S WATCHING PETER NAVARRO

  • I'm really beginning to worry about Fox ! BS poll results and Left leaning hosts has me being more selective about what I watch here .
    You aren't reflecting your audience opinions and are failing us !

  • majority oppose, because tarrifs dont work, never have. People are still struggling, living pay check to paycheck. The quality of life here hss only gone down under Trump.

  • Nick Giorgione says:

    Fox's poll on people being against tariffs on Mexico is BS. As each day passes there is more evidence that FOX news is full of kai bosh. Take a look at your likes/dislikes on this video.

  • Liberals have become free traders. 😂 If Trump advocated being nice to puppies, there would be a backlash against puppies.

  • Then 57% or what ever are socialist fools, the cost of the invasion is costing billions after they get into USA then steal jobs from born Americans & legalized!

  • Registered Democrat says:

    All my life never been polled so I don’t follow the polls. Mexico needs to be taxed also put Tariffs on the Wire Transfers done by Illegal Aliens to Mexico.

  • Fox News Didn't ask me About the Tarrifs, but Even if the Tarrifs Hurt Some Americans in the End America Will be Better Off!!! "GO POTUS TRUMP GO KEEP MAKING AMERICA GREAT AGAIN PTL AMEN AND AMEN"!!! "POTUS TRUMP N 2020 PTL AMEN AND AMEN"!!!

  • Steve Thornton says:

    Check every commercial vehicle coming into the USA from Mexico for a few days, they will
    back up all the way to their capital city. Then maybe they will get the message.

    TRUMP 2020🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  • frank holcombe says:

    there was a time when America , supplied the world , the democrat party changed all this , the democrat party has took America to the cleaners only to make them rich do not think so check their bank accounts , most do not make the money to have millions in the bank !!!!

  • WisdomAboveGold.com says:

    Oh, for goodness sake!!! Just what do most Americans even know about this issue??? How many Americans own and operate international businesses and understand the negotiating process??? More importantly, how many Americans have the mettle up their spines to win a war that can potentially alter the fate of human history on a global scale???? So, your only 'sacrifice' may be paying an extra $1 or 2 for an avocado and you're already prepared to fold??? How pathetic and selfishly masochistic!!! You deserve to lose your nation but the other 48% deserve a lot better than YOU!!!! GET OUT OF OUR WAY!!!!!

  • I support tarriff too,.but l don't support the Congress.. Enough is
    Enough.. It's time to close the borders….

  • POLLS SHOWED HILLARY IS NOW PRESIDENT. POLLS ARE BS. AMERICAN greed in big Corp has no boundaries. If they want to manufacture in another country let them sell to that country. If they want to sell here manufacture HERE. THAT SOLVES IT. NO TARRIFS INVOLVED.

  • Jose Fernandez-Leon says:

    Whom did Fox commission to do this poll, how were questions structured and interpreted, who was polled and how many? Be very careful of what anyone says or claims, even if Fox who quotes at times even CNN!

  • We have economic results do Americans not see it all around them? They say "Yes the economy is better and I got my first pay raise in 10 years but it's nothing Trump did". "Ye,s we have more jobs now but it had nothing to do with Trump talking with all the companies that are coming back, its just coincidence".

  • Guatamalans don't know how to flush toilets. My wife stepped on guatemalan baby diaper full of poop. They plant them on street corners.

  • A fraction is I'll informed, and a fraction is out of their minds, and well, ya know, the rest quit answering their phones and answering surveys.

  • Stop polling just Mexicans, the 48% of Mexicans for tariffs, were probably born here, or emigrated legally, douche bag FAUX FOX spreading garbage…again.

  • 600 CEO's are for themselves and not the American people. Also the number 600 sounds like a Democrat made up a number where is the list of these CEO's? I searched and can not find the list. Just like the "800 former federal prosecutors who say Trump should be impeached". What are their names?

  • I remember NAFTA it was supposed to help us but Billy never explained how or what it was it was like under a camouflaged cover. I assumed it was no tariff both ways but as it turned out it was tariffs on us only and not the others.

  • Rich Rockefeller says:

    Well Mexicans who voted have to make up their minds and decide whether they are going to be Americans or Mexicans. The President has decided. Whether you accept the referees decision or not, this decision was made on behalf of America. Don't come here and try to change it because the reason why you are here is because it IS different from Mexico. Did you come here to love it or break it?

  • LOL. There are no polls that the voters truly believe in, as lesson learned as a result of 2016. The dems think the voters are idiots! Its own party is divided, candidate are socialists, and the dem controlled house accomplished nothing since it took control. The voters are considering all of this regardless of party affiliation. The dems have not learned from 2016 and the fake polling. They need to get back to running the country from an ethical perspective by pulling big business hands out of their pockets. Otherwise, we the voters are watching the Democrat Party die and we will make sure that happens in 2020. Or at a minimum help break it up. Just like the Brexit Party (created only 60 days or so ago) did to the Conservative Party at the UK, Democrats will die like the Conservative Party in the UK by being replaced by another party that splinters away from the Dems because it has become too socialistic.

  • After Barr & Durham finish their reports & investigations & not 1 single person gets prosecuted for it-
    YOU HAVE YOURSELVES TO THANK!

  • SO HOW MANY DEMS WILL BE INDICTED?
    HOW MANY WILL END UP IN JAIL?

    MY GUESS IS A BIG FAT ZERO!

    THIS IS NOTHING BUT A GAME .
    THEY WIN.
    WE LOSE.

  • Cousin Melvin says:

    Let's get this strait, out of 1,001 people polled 52% "of voters" oppose….This is fake news in action. there is no f'n way 1000 people represent ALL of the voters. IF Fox News was really about reporting the news, the facts, they wouldn't lie to us about this trying to make a mountain out of a molehill, So here is the interpretation FOX NEWS IS OPPOSED TO PLACING TARIFFS ON MEXICO, never mind that tariffs is thee constitutional method for funding the federal government. FAKE NEWS ALERT!

  • I bet the 52 percent that voted were all Mexicans. Keep working and get that second job America. These welfare bitches need a house and a car.

  • LOL the commercial for BUILD THE WALL says that over 12500 murders occur daily. LOL oh ok so buy the end of the year everyone on the other side should be dead!!! You don't need the wall then do you!!!!!!

  • Travis Noland says:

    You people who don’t believe in polls you seem bitter if you got bad information on polls consider the source if cnn msnbc gave you junk information maybe just MAYBE EVERYTHING THING ELSE THAT COMES FROM THESE PROPAGANDA NETWORKS IS BS

  • American Patriot says:

    Buy U.S.A support our companies it hurts bad countries and bad people in our country. Poor CEOs aww they can't afford to pay themselves a 200 million dollar bonus

  • Let me guess they're pulling the people in Mexico… 65 and never been asked to take a poll… I'm an independent… I vote… if it stops illegal migration do it…

  • 8898 miles of US border and gonna wall up 200 miles of it. These folks have already traveled 2000 miles what's 200 more. WAKE UP FOLKS

  • Veronica Hammock says:

    Fox News your polls are fake everybody I know you've never even asked. No polls from anyone .And by the comments on here by most people who subscribed to you.
    Fox News starting to become like CNN and MSNBC ever since Disney took over. Throwing out there some fake news…

  • Rebekah Hockman says:

    Don’t believe any of these polls – tired of the invasion while homeless people are lining the streets – enough is enough

  • China manufactures the drugs and then they come in through the Mexico border . Yes of course they come in through other ports of entry too. Think about it . America is under attack right before our eyes and everyone is worried about Donald Trump . …… so disturbing .

  • Elaine Kilgore says:

    Nobody asked me about it, Tariffs are effective tools. Why have them if you’re afraid to use them? I guess that’s why we have a president. A person who is not afraid to use the tools available. In Mexico’s case, tariffs only go as high or last as long as the problem with their own borders last’s. They’re doing something now, though I don’t think that will last long. Cartels too powerful. I don’t mind scrimping and doing without a few things in the short term. That would depend on Congress finally finally fixing the immigration laws, Get the border wall built, and stop giving us away. If not, the long term is just around the corner.

  • Mexico and Canada signed the UN Open Border agreement in December 2018. So what do you think Mexico will do but stall! Tariffs the way to go. If they dont stop the invaders the Tarrifs will kick in at a higher percentage than 5% according to Trump. They are trying to let in as many invaders as possible and UN has a lot to do with it. So now we have Ebola threat entering the US. Who is flying the Congolese where Ebola is spreading, to the Mexican Border? All part of the Marxists plan to bring in OWG. Have infiltrated governments of many countries. People need to fight back and support President Trump. Regards

  • Joyce Jackson says:

    Well they didn't ask me or anyone from the fly over states. yeah. I'm good with these tariffs if Mexico stops using the us for their failed national security problems. they don't want them. but we have to take them. no. I'm thinking Portland Oregon can take all off them. each person supporting peace and kumbia. anyone with a yard, plumming and heart of humanity can and will take them all. 💖 I love Portland Oregon there peace and love. . they can and will take them all. they will get more senate seats because of population growth. lol.

  • IsThatTrue OrDidYouHearItOnFOX says:

    To be fair, the only people who oppose trump's tariffs are those who understand that a tariff is an across the board tax increase. It's trump's way of offsetting the debt increase of his trillion dollar giveaway to billionaires. It is nothing more than trump's way of slashing taxes for the wealthy while sticking it to the working class. Good thing for trump that half the country is too feeble minded to grasp such a concept.

  • Michael Warzenski says:

    It’s not fake polls. Nor is it fake news. You all are bunch of conservative twats !!!! Anyone but Trump 2020! Worst president ever that has been elected.

  • Yes, and more than 50 % will welcome giving money to the correct elected officials and agencies out here rather than watch them go to corrupt state police agencies…

  • Michael Grant JR says:

    Fox News need to stop reporting actual news or else, Trump will rename them Fake News and make their rating drop.

  • burnbabyburn 2026 says:

    thats because 57 per cent is how many illigals are here that should tell you folks somthing like there might be to many maybe

  • I used to answer polls all the time. After Trump ELECTED PRESIDENT only once. Answered in favor of Trump, no more polls. What?

  • who was polled? I suspect it was corporate farmers, Wal-Mart executive's, and toy store sales executive's . name the company's those CEO' s work for, and I promise to stop buying their products.

  • If only the wall was but back in the early nineties. We would all have career factory jobs with great benefits and insurance. We would all own homes and we would have plenty of jobs and low cost rentals for our kids.

  • Benito Camela says:

    I feel good when I buy something Made in u.s.a. No more chinesse junk at least for another 100 years pls finally a president working for all americans not for chinesse corporations .God bless the U.S.A.

  • This is a perfect example of how polls are full of you know what??? Does anyone take polls seriously???
    This is bogus bull poop!

  • Polls are worthless! Most Americans know nothing about tariffs or tariff impediments. Why poll a group which has almost zero knowledge of the subject?
