Presidential counselor Kellyanne Conway, as a former pollster, said Wednesday she thinks there will be "phony polling questions" to show that President Donald Trump's Oval Office address Tuesday night didn't change Americans' opinions on the need for a wall at the southern border.
"Watch the way this polling question is formed," Conway told Fox News' "America's Newsroom."
"Watch the way Democrats in the past supported border security. The only thing that's happened in the 13 years since they secured the 2006 Secure Fences Act, the border has become more dire."
She added that the matter of border security should be a "nonpartisan issue," while panning the "bit of anemic and partisan response" to Trump's speech from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer.
"They could not tell you zero people have been raped," Conway said, or that nobody has been smuggled in by traffickers.
Further, she said the two Democrats could not say that drugs "aren't pouring over the southern border" or that "unaccompanied children are trying to come through border in ways we've never seen."
Meanwhile, Trump's address allowed him to take his case to the American people who are hearing the information from the border from the president for the first time, she said, while noting he's also made his case in several other locations.
"Tomorrow he'll be at the border," she said. "He is the public face of his border security proposal."
