A majority of voters don't believe the United States should build a wall along the border with Mexico to help curb illegal immigration, according to a new poll.
According to the poll from Rasmussen, 56 percent of voters don't believe a wall should be built, but 37 percent think a border wall is necessary to help stop illegal immigration.
Despite the public sentiment, the Trump administration continues to push forward with its plan to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, fulfilling a major campaign promise from President Trump.
The House approved a spending bill last week that included $1.6 billion in funding for the wall, but the package is unlikely to pass the Senate in that form. Still, House passage of that language could give the GOP leverage to keep the money in a final bill funding the entire government for the next fiscal year.
Without the border wall, border crossings reached a 17-year low in April, a shift many attribute to Trump's tougher stance against illegal immigrants.
Rasmussen polled 1,000 likely voters July 26 and July 27 with a margin of error of 3 percentage points.
