GOPers Fear That Trump's Immigration Mania Will Alienate Crucial Swing Voters

Trump's strategy Change topic before midterms

Forty-seven percent of registered voters say President Donald Trump deserves credit for the United States' booming economy, according to a Harvard-Harris poll released Wednesday.

The video is reminiscent of the infamous 1988 "Willie Horton" ad used against Democratic presidential candidate Michael Dukakis and condemned as racist.

The controversial video, pinned to the top of his social media feed, blames the Democrats for "letting in" Luis Bracamontes - an undocumented immigrant from Mexico who killed two police officers in Sacramento in 2014.

"Illegal immigrant, Luis Bracamontes, killed our people!" reads the text featured on the 53-second video. A senior counterterrorism expert in the Trump administration told CNN that there's no evidence "ISIS or other Sunni terrorist groups are trying to infiltrate the southern US border".

And on May 4, 2001, he was arrested on marijuana charges in Arizona's Maricopa County and deported three days later - when Republican George W. Bush was president.

Trump's presidential re-election campaign paid for the ad, U.S. news media reported.

They doubled-down on their criticisms of the video, saying: "The Trump campaign ad is the latest example of the President's willingness to lie and fear-monger in order to tear at racial and societal divides; to embrace demagoguery to bolster his own political power and the cause of the Republican midterm campaign".

As for the new video, though, the campaign was silent on Thursday (local time) and Mr Parscale did not respond to requests for comment.

"This is distracting, divisive Donald at his worst", Perez said on CNN.

Horton was a convicted murderer who committed rape while furloughed under a programme in MA where Democratic nominee Michael Dukakis was governor.

Bracamontes, an immigrant living in the country illegally, sports a shaved head and long chin hair and speaks in accented English in the video, and his words are clear: He's killed cops and he's "gonna kill more cops soon".

Trump, whose administration takes a hard-line approach to legal and illegal immigration, has focused on the caravan to drum up support for Republican congressional and gubernatorial candidates ahead of Tuesday's congressional elections.

Meanwhile, CNN reports that Republican Sen.

"The Willie Horton ad gave George Herbert Walker Bush his one big black eye in history", said Brinkley.

The video shows a Latino man in court, smiling menacingly.
