JUST DO THE RIGHT THING:

Polling Illustrates Senate Republicans' Border Wall Bind (ELI YOKLEY, March 13, 2019, Morning Consult)

Seven in 10 Republican voters said they would be more likely to vote for senators or representatives who support Trump's decision, according to the March 8-10 survey, while 3 in 5 non-Republicans - self-identified Democrats and independents - said they would be less likely to back the lawmaker in 2020. [...]

Morning Consult data shows the vote could be a big one for the legislators on the ballot next year. Seventy-eight percent of the electorate said support or opposition for Trump's national emergency declaration would sway their vote one way or another, higher than the 61 percent who said the same for the GOP's plan to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act in May 2017 and the 64 percent who said the same of the Republican tax bill in December 2017.

Trump's tack of speaking almost exclusively to his own base caught up with congressional Republicans in 2018, as they shed 40 House seats and underperformed early forecasts for Senate gains despite picking up two seats.
