Most voters in nine out of the ten states that voted for Trump and have Democratic senators up for reelection this year support DACA protections for immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally as children, and majorities in every state think that undocumented immigrants working in the U.S. should be given a pathway to citizenship, according to new Axios/SurveyMonkey polls.

Why it matters: Democrats need to pick up two seats to regain control of the Senate and, as we wrote earlier this week, could lose ground in these races. But polling has shown that most Americans blame Republicans more than Democrats for not finding a solution to protect "Dreamers," and think Trump wants to deport them. The support for DACA and pathways to citizenship could help Senate Democrats keep their seats.

Yes, but most of these competitive states have fairly low levels of immigrants. In 2016 and 2014, Pew Research found that American's voter priorities were jobs, the economy, national security/terrorism and health care before immigration.

Methodology: These SurveyMonkey/Axios online polls were conducted February 12- March 5, 2018 among a total sample of 17,289 registered voters living in Florida, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, Missouri, Indiana, West Virginia, Montana, North Dakota.

Twitter launches warnings on election misinformation and delays

Twitter will start pinning notices to the top of all U.S. Twitter users’ timelines warning that results in next week’s election may be delayed and that they may encounter misinformation on mail-in voting.

Why it matters: Delayed election results are expected across many states that are handling unprecedented amounts of absentee and mailed ballots, which President Trump has baselessly called "very dangerous" and "corrupt."

Water on the Moon might be more easily accessible than previously thought, opening up new possible avenues for future human exploration, according to a new study.

Why it matters: NASA is aiming to send people back to the Moon as part of its Artemis program by 2024, with plans to eventually create a sustainable presence on the lunar surface. That sustainability relies on mining the moon for its resources, like water.

Vice President Mike Pence no longer plans to attend the Senate's final confirmation vote for Judge Amy Coney Barrett, a Pence aide confirmed to CNN and Politico on Monday. On Sunday, Senate Democrats claimed that his presence after possible exposure to the coronavirus would be a "violation of common decency."

Driving the news: Five of Pence's aides were recently diagnosed with COVID-19, including his chief of staff, who is currently quarantining. Pence has continued his campaign travel despite his possible exposure, which goes against CDC guidelines.
