Two polls are out on Trump's policy of separating families of illegal immigrants. Both show it is historically unpopular. @QuinnipiacPoll: 66% oppose – 27% supp (-39% margin)@ipsosus 56-27 (-29% margin)
For context, these numbers are lower than any major bill in past 30 yrs. pic.twitter.com/tBSNnwajdi

Here’s the CNN poll which shows the majority of Republicans approve of Trump’s policy but overall, two-thirds of the country does not approve.
Family separation is only favored by 27% of U.S. public. Reporting is emphasizing majority of GOP voters support, but only 55%. That is a very low number of GOPs supporting family separation, given how party labels are used as cues in our polarized times. https://t.co/wlmIrLwVG0
