Fox News Poll: Voters say border security is worse compared to two years ago

Two weeks after the pandemic-era Title 42 border restrictions ended, President Biden received his lowest marks to date on border safety with six in 10 American voters preferring the limits had remained. 

In addition, just over half (51%) of registered voters in a new Fox News survey say security at the border has gotten worse in the past two years, while only 11% think it has gotten better. 

In June 2018, 17% felt the border situation was worsening while 28% thought it was getting better.

Another 37% say border security is about the same (down from 50% in 2018).

But 35% think it was the right move to let the restrictions end, up from 27% in May 2022.

Voters familiar with Title 42 (71%) would prefer to keep the restrictions by a 31-point margin, down from a 49-point margin a year ago. 

The top reasons voters believe more migrants are coming is because of political and economic factors in their home countries (87%), migrants viewing the U.S. as the best country (83%) and gangs and cartels (82%).  Significantly fewer say it’s because of disruption caused by the pandemic (58%).

Democrats are driving these results, while Republicans are more likely to attribute the influx to Biden policies and gangs (87% each), followed by factors in home countries (84%).
