They’ve had the question before until it was removed by Obama in 2010. So the real question isn’t why they should have it, but why it was ever removed?
Americans by a wide margin agree with President Trump that the upcoming 2020 census should ask a citizenship question.
The latest Economist/YouGov poll found that 53% feel it should ask the question versus 32% who don’t.
The survey asked: “Do you think the federal government should or should not ask people whether they are American citizens as part of the 2020 census?”
The Supreme Court has rejected including the question in a form the administration proposed but left the door open to another version. And Trump is considering changing the version.
