The Republican base is “coming home” before Tuesday’s midterm elections because President Donald Trump has nationalized the illegal immigration issue, according to Bill McInturff, the Republican pollster who conducts the NBC/Wall Street Journal (WSJ) poll with Democrat Peter Hart. Trump has made illegal immigration and the migrant caravan central issues of the 2018 campaign, and a CNN poll released on Monday found that immigration is more important to Republican voters (64% said it was extremely important to their vote) than the economy (60%). “There has been some method to his…
