 A new Quinnipiac University poll was released showing two-thirds of Amerians oppose the Trump Administration policy of separating immigrant children from their families when they cross the border illegally.

Tim Malloy is the director of the poll. He says this is a big political item that Trump pulled the trigger on. The overwhelming response sends a strong statement and could be the biggest challenge for the President going forward.

The poll shows that over 50 percent of americans are opposed to President Trump's idea of building a wall along the Mexican border The biggest impact Malloy sees is how this affects the upcoming midterm elections. 

"If you are a Republican and you are running and you back the President on this right now, you can bet that every campaign ad no matter if it's in Buffalo or anywhere else, will have these kids in it," Malloy said.

Malloy says how Republicans align themselves with the issue could make them vulnerable.
