Do Republicans even want a Wall?

Or are they just going along with it because they're afraid of Trump/protecting Trump from another embarrassing failure? I don't really hear about Republicans sounding like they're actually much in favor of Trump's Wall so much as they are using it to keep the government shut down (probably to cripple it purposefully) and attack Democrats as "weak" on Border Security. Thoughts?

1. No

Which is why they didn't pass the legislation when they were in control.

7. The GOP run senate passed a bill to keep government open

100-0.

Then, Trump gets a mean tweet from Ann Coulter and folds like the spineless turd that he is, and here we are. Donny is holding out because he's afraid of Coulter.

3. Nope. They couldn't care less. If they wanted it, they would have had it by now.

4. No

But most of them have Russian ties one way or another, and they know if they "DON'T" back trump he will use that against them. If he goes down, they all go down. They value their future over the future of our country!

5. They had two years where they could have pushed for funding and didn't.

 

Two years of Republic control of all three branches of government and they shut down part of government as soon as they learned they were losing the House. Likely the gambit was to tie the House up from launching investigations, but House took care of it's part of ending the shutdown in only a couple days.

6. No, clearly they do not.

They kept putting it off and apparently, the head liar never noticed.

9. No. New poll today shows only 7% of people want the Wall in exchange for opening

the government.
