Texans solidly against Trump's decision to declare a national emergency

President Donald Trump's national emergency declaration to build his border wall will affect Texas more than any other state, and the residents of the Lone Star State are soundly against his decision to use those powers.

Three in five Texas voters disapprove of Trump using his emergency executive powers to fund a wall, according to a poll by Quinnipiac University released Tuesday. That includes 22% of Republicans, 63% of independents and a whopping 99% of Democrats.

A little more than half of voters said they don't think undocumented immigrants crossing the border with Mexico into the US is a national emergency. Overall, Texans are split on their support for Trump's wall -- 48% support building a wall along the border with Mexico and 48% oppose it.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Note the discrepancy between the headline, which says Texans are "solidly" against the national emergency and the actual poll numbers, which are evenly split.
