An extensive new poll from the Pew Research Center shows that almost 60 percent of all registered American voters oppose the construction of a wall running along the length of the border between the United States and Mexico.

Just 38 percent of all voters support such a border wall, according to the Pew poll.

On the Republican side, a solid majority — 67 percent — supports a U.S.-Mexico border wall. On the Democratic side, however, 86 percent of voters oppose a wall.

Supporters of businessman Donald Trump tend to be fervid advocates of a wall separating the United States from Mexico. Support for a building a wall among Trump voters is 84 percent, the poll says.
