A majority of Americans back building a wall along the U.S. border with Mexico, according to a new survey.

The new Monmouth University poll found that 53 percent of respondents support backing a border wall, which the polling center says is the first time a majority of respondents supported the proposal since it started asking the question in 2015. Forty-six percent said they opposed building the wall, according to the poll.

Monmouth University noted that support for the wall has increased over the past eight years among Republicans and independents but decreased among Democrats. During the Trump administration, the poll found that support for the wall was no higher than 44 percent and at some points stood as low as 35 percent
