Majority of Americans Think Trump Would Not Be Able to Get Mexico to Pay for Wall

Only 13 percent of Americans think Trump could deliver on this promise.

ABC News together with our partners at SSRS survey research firm asked our online opinion panel if they believed Trump would be able to get Mexico to pay for building a wall along the U.S. southern border.

Seventy-eight percent said they believed Trump could not deliver on this promise, while 13 percent said he could.

Asked to give a one-word response to a video of one part of Trump's highly anticipated immigration speech last week, 67 percent reacted with a negative word, such as “ridiculous” and “disgusting.” Just 27 percent responded with a positive word, such as “great” and “agree.”

The ABC News/SSRS Poll was conducted using the SSRS Probability Panel. Interviews were conducted online overnight from Sept. 1 through Sept. 2, 2016, among a nationally representative sample of 228 respondents age 18 and older. The margin of error for total respondents is +/-8.5 percent at the 95 percent confidence level. Design effect is 1.71. The SSRS Probability Panel is a probability-based, online panel of adults recruited from random digit dialed landline and cell phone numbers.
