Abolishing ICE Is Pretty Damn Unpopular

A Morning Consult/Politico poll finds that American oppose abolishing ICE by more than 2:1. The idea is favored by a slight plurality of Democrats but overwhelmingly opposed by not just Republicans but also independents.
There are other and more effective ways to oppose Trump's immigration policies--many of which are themselves quite unpopular--than taking a stand on abolishing ICE. Thus, outside of very blue districts where taking a stand on this might not be a problem, Democrats should stay away from this problematic and unpopular idea.
Let's not snatch defeat from the jaws of victory!
