NEW YORK CITY — Republican presidential candidates will need to secure the southern border and preserve the innocence of children in order to win in 2024, a new poll suggests.
NBC News released a new poll on Tuesday gauging support for 11 different proposals and issues that have become campaign talking points for Republican presidential candidates. Respondents were surveyed between June 16 and June 20.
TOP ISSUE: SECURING THE SOUTHERN BORDER
The most pressing issue for voters was deploying the U.S. military toward securing the southern border. Among GOP voters, 86 percent said they were “more likely” to vote for candidates who “Supports deploying the U.S. military to the Mexican border to stop illegal drugs from entering the country” and 79 percent wanted the same for curbing illegal immigration.
NO MORE GROOMING
The next most important issue was combating the Left’s recent push toward discussing gender confusion and sexualized subjects with young children in public schools. When asked about prohibiting teachers from discussing these sensitive topics with K-8 students, 76 percent said this would make them more likely to vote for a candidate.
STOP CHILD MUTILATION
In addition to keeping classrooms free from LGBTQ propaganda, 70 percent of GOP voters also said they want to see a candidate who supports banning transgender adolescents from taking puberty-blocking medication.
CUT “CLIMATE” INVESTMENTS
Reducing inflation by repealing parts of Biden’s Inflation Reduction Act by “spending less on climate change and green energy” proved to be another winning issue, garnering support from 68 percent of Republican voters.
NO MORE MONEY TO UKRAINE
More than half of GOP voters said they would be less likely to vote for a candidate who “supports providing more funding and weapons to Ukraine.”
